PREVENTATIVE DENTAL TREATMENT
We focus on prevention for our patients at Centra Dental. When you take care of your teeth at home, have regular professional dental cleanings and exams and we take periodic x-rays, we can help to prevent some of the most common dental conditions that you might experience.
Professional dental cleanings help us to remove calculus (tartar) from your teeth in order for you to avoid gum disease and decay. No matter how thoroughly you brush at home, your toothbrush simply cannot reach all of the areas that we can with our precision instruments. We are gentle when it comes to all of our dental cleanings and will do our best to make your dental experience a positive one.
Regular exams and x-rays help Dr. Nguyen keep an eye on your health and monitor any changes she sees. With periodic x-rays, we are more likely to catch problems such as decay and infection early when they are easier to treat.
For some patients, a little extra help to avoid decay is necessary. That is why we offer fluoride treatments and dental sealants as an added protection against decay. Fluoride treatments help to strengthen your enamel and keep decay at bay, while dental sealants provide a clear protective barrier on the surface of your tooth to keep bacteria and food particles from taking hold.
