Here at Smilesavers Dental, part of our job is giving our patients oral health education and routine preventative care to ensure that patients have the tools and care to have a healthy and beautiful smile! Some of the typical preventative dental services offered by Dr. Shah are:
- Routine Dental Cleanings – scaling and polishing the visible surfaces of the teeth (also known as dental prophylaxis). This removes built-up plaque and bacteria to prevent cavities and gum disease.
- Dental examination – at every cleaning, Dr. Shah checks patients for oral cancer, cavities, and other signs of dental disease to ensure that any problem is caught as early as possible!
- Application of fluoride – fluoride is applied to the teeth to strengthen and rebuild enamel. It can also prevent very small cavities from progressing into larger ones.
- Oral Health Instruction – demonstrating proper brushing and flossing techniques so that you can take your oral health into your own hands.
Our ultimate goal is to maintain your oral health by teaching effective oral care and providing routine dental cleanings and exams to minimize how often you have to come in. If you’re due for your regular check-up, reach out to our office to make an appointment!
