We get a lot of questions from patients about what’s meant by the term “preventive dentistry.”

In its simplest definition, preventive dentistry is all about patients taking the initiative to care for their teeth to keep them healthy – and likewise preventing cavities, gum disease and oral health issues.

There are a variety of preventive dental tactics that anyone can do each day at home, such as brushing and flossing your teeth, using oral rinses and so forth. On the dentist front, we’re proud to carry out a plethora of preventive dental services for patients each day as well.

Dental cleanings and exams are two of the most basic, yet important, preventive treatments we provide at NY Dental Group.

As one of our patients, every time you visit our office for a checkup, we’ll carry out a professional teeth cleaning and dental exam, designed to help your smile stay as healthy as possible.

During these appointments with our expert team, we’ll clean your teeth by removing any plaque or tartar buildup, floss and polish your teeth, as well as examine your smile for signs of any damaging dental conditions or diseases, such as gingivitis, periodontitis and others.

Regular dental cleanings and exams are essential in maintaining good oral health, preventing cavities and gum disease, while also ensuring we – as your dental team – tackle and treat any damaging conditions you might have as early as possible.

We also utilize digital X-rays to evaluate your teeth even more closely with our advanced diagnostic tools. This also ensures you’re on track with the dental care that you, and your smile, need to stay healthy.

Within our catalog of preventive dentistry are also periodontal maintenance services, as well as in-office and take-home teeth whitening.

We go into greater depth with our preventive dental services on the ‘Preventive Dentistry’ page on our website, which we encourage you to check out!
