Routine oral exams are the best way for patients to avoid infection, disease and decay. Regular at-home care is important to maintain healthy gums and teeth, but oral exams allow us to inspect your mouth more thoroughly, so we can detect any signs of dental issues that may become a larger problem down the road. Some of these issues may not display obvious signs or symptoms in their earliest stages, so we recommend that patients come in for an oral exam at least twice a year.
In addition to routine oral exams, dental cleanings are an integral part of maintaining good oral hygiene. Dental cleanings are also an excellent opportunity for you to learn more about the state of your oral health. This time allows you and your dentist to discuss ways you can adjust your at-home care so you can improve the health of your gums and teeth. We recommend for patients to have at least two dental cleanings every year. They can even be part of your routine oral exam.
At our dentist office in Trinidad, we offer fluoride treatments for adults as well. These treatments can help you maintain good oral hygiene through greater prevention of tooth decay. We often recommend a fluoride treatment after completion of a regular dental cleaning.
Due to the contour of your back teeth, bacteria can often get into small crevices and lead to tooth decay. Sealants are a great way to protect against these threats to your oral health. Dental sealants are made of a strong, long-lasting plastic material, and are placed over the surface of your molars so they are strengthened and protected. This procedure is often highly recommended for children as a defence against cavities.
A preventive program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental staff to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions.
Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident, beautiful smile.
