At Southwest Dentistry, we prioritize preventive care as a cornerstone of maintaining optimal oral health. Regular check-ups and cleanings are essential for preventing dental issues and preserving your beautiful smile.
Our team of experienced dentists conducts comprehensive dental exams to assess your oral health. During these examinations, we thoroughly examine your teeth, gums, and oral tissues to identify any signs of dental problems at their early stages.
Professional Teeth Cleaning
Professional dental cleanings play a crucial role in maintaining a healthy smile. Our skilled dental hygienists perform thorough cleanings, removing plaque and tartar buildup that cannot be effectively eliminated through regular brushing. Additionally, the cleaning process includes polishing to remove surface stains, leaving your teeth looking fresh and bright. We also take this opportunity to evaluate your oral hygiene practices and provide guidance for improvement.
Dental X-rays are an integral part of preventive care. They allow us to detect hidden dental problems that may not be visible during a regular examination. By evaluating the tooth roots, bone structure, and tooth development, we gain valuable insights into your oral health and can develop a comprehensive treatment plan.
Oral Cancer Screening
Regular oral cancer screenings are vital for early detection and improved treatment outcomes. Our dentists thoroughly examine your oral tissues, throat, and neck, looking for any signs or symptoms of oral cancer. By identifying potential concerns early on, we can take prompt action and provide appropriate care.
To protect vulnerable teeth from decay and cavities, we offer dental sealants. These thin protective coatings are applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, creating a barrier against bacteria and food particles. Dental sealants are especially beneficial for children and individuals prone to tooth decay.
Fluoride treatments are highly effective in preventing tooth decay and strengthening tooth enamel. We offer fluoride applications to provide an added layer of protection for your teeth. By safeguarding against acid attacks and demineralization, fluoride treatments contribute to long-term oral health.
Patient Education and Oral Hygiene Instruction
We believe that proper oral hygiene practices are essential for maintaining a healthy smile. Our team is dedicated to patient education and provides valuable tips and techniques for effective brushing and flossing. We also offer personalized recommendations tailored to your specific needs, empowering you to take control of your oral health at home.
