What Can Preventive dental care do?
Preventive dentistry can prevent most common dental issues, including both tooth decay (cavities) and gum disease. Tooth decay and gum disease are the most common cause of premature tooth loss, and can be extremely damaging to your oral health.
Regular oral exams can even help catch other issues like oral cancer or signs of chronic health problems like diabetes. So make a twice-yearly dental exam and cleaning with our dentists in Stamford, CT!
Care For Your Smile
Teeth Cleanings & Oral Exams
A regular teeth cleaning every 6-months along with an oral exam is essential for protecting your mouth. Seeing the team at Clear Smile Dental Studio regularly ensures that you can prevent common dental health issues like tooth decay and gum disease in Stamford. Our dental team will also be able to remove plaque and surface stains from your smile, and ensure that your teeth are healthy and beautiful.
Strengthen Your Teeth
Fluoride has the unique ability to attract minerals to your teeth and strengthen the enamel, even after they have been affected by the first stage of decay. A fluoride treatment consists of a highly-fluoridated gel or paste that is applied directly to your teeth, and left in place for a few minutes. Then, Dr. Park or Dr. Kwon will rinse it away, and the fluoride will begin to strengthen your smile.
Prevent Tooth Decay
Dental sealants use a strong plastic resin that is applied to your rear teeth in liquid form. This resin is hardened using a UV light, and forms a protective barrier that stops oral bacteria, acid, and food particles from contacting your teeth directly. In turn, this prevents cavities. With proper placement, sealants can last up to 10 years.
Peace Of Mind
Oral Cancer Screenings
We perform oral cancer screenings along with your standard dental exam during your regular biannual visits at Clear Smile Dental Studio. Dr. Park and Dr. Kwon will look for any potential abnormalities that may demand further assessment and diagnosis, such as lesions, discolored patches of skin, and other such potential signs of oral cancer. With regular screenings, you will get peace of mind, particularly if you have an increased risk of oral cancer due to smoking, excessive sun exposure, and other such factors.
In Preventing Dental Disease
Seeing Dr. Park and Dr. Kwon every six months is important for maintaining your oral health. Routine teeth cleanings and oral exams ensure that you are not suffering from any hidden dental diseases like cavities and
But you have a role to play in preventing dental disease, too. Your own oral hygiene and lifestyle habits are the biggest factors when it comes to developing oral health issues like cavities, tooth infections, and gum disease.
If you want to keep your mouth healthy, it’s important to maintain good oral hygiene at home. Make sure you brush at least twice a day for two minutes using fluoride toothpaste, and floss once a day to remove any debris that can’t be eliminated with brushing alone. Adding antiseptic mouthwash to your routine can also help keep your mouth healthy.
In addition to this, consider changing your diet and lifestyle. For example, eliminating sugary soda and other drinks from your diet, reducing snacking, and eating a healthy overall diet can dramatically reduce your risk of cavities and gum disease.
Other steps to take include reducing or eliminating alcohol intake, and quitting smoking, vaping, or the use of any kind of oral tobacco. Heavy drinking and tobacco use both can negatively affect your oral health and raise your risk of dental disease, too.
If you want more information about how to keep your mouth healthy, Dr. Kwon and Dr. Park can help. After your appointment at Clear Smile Dental Studio in Stamford, they can discuss your oral health, your lifestyle, and changes that you can make to prevent dental disease.
Of Preventing Dental Disease
Taking action and maintaining a healthy mouth to prevent dental disease has a number of great benefits. First, it protects and preserves your overall oral health and gives you peace of mind. If you take good care of your mouth, you’ll know that you are unlikely to suffer from future oral health issues.
In turn, this also can save you a lot of time and money. By making an effort to care for your teeth properly, you can virtually eliminate the risk of cavities, gum disease, and other such oral health issues. Preventing these issues means you won’t have to spend a lot of time at the dentist’s office, or pay for expensive treatments like root canals or dental crowns to restore seriously damaged or infected teeth.
Preventing dental disease can even protect your overall health, since your oral health and your overall health are connected. For example, cases of serious gum disease are associated with a higher risk of heart disease, so avoiding gum disease can help you protect your heart health.
