Preventive Dentistry Can Ensure Lasting Oral Health for All Ages

Dentist in Irving, TX

Drs. Joshua Lee and John Lee are always happy to treat dental problems or to enhance your smile with cosmetic care. Nevertheless, our first goal at Kids & Grownups Dental is to prevent oral health problems through routine care. We offer a wide range of preventive dentistry services at our Irving, TX, practice. Routine cleanings are some of our most important preventive treatments, and can remove the harmful substances that can lead to cavities, gum disease, and tooth loss. We can also treat minor issues before they evolve into more severe complications. For our pediatric patients, we offer special services such as sealants and fluoride supplements. Our team can also help you improve your dental care at home, further ensuring a beautiful and healthy smile for many years.

A regular dental cleaning can prevent forms of tooth decay and gum disease.

The Importance of Preventive Dentistry

It is only through routine care that we can reduce your risk for cavities and periodontitis. When bacteria accumulate on your teeth, they will gradually build up into sticky plaque and hard tartar. Because bacteria will then be in constant contact with your teeth, they will feed off of the starches in your food, producing acid. The acids will erode your enamel, and the microbes will work their way deeper into your teeth. Over time, cavities can form. The bacteria can slowly work their way into your gums, where they can cause inflammation and create pockets around your dental roots. It is only a matter of time until these pockets grow larger, causing widespread tooth loss.

Exams and cleanings are the fundamental preventive treatments. At each visit, your hygienist will gently buff your teeth to remove bacteria and scale away any hard tartar.

Preventive care can eliminate harmful substances and keep these problems at bay and eliminate the need for costly treatments. We can also treat existing cavities and gum disease early, using more conservative methods. Therefore, it is important to visit us regularly, typically at six-month intervals. If you already have gum disease, or you struggle with recurring decay, you may want to book additional appointments.
