General & Preventive Dentistry, The Building Block of Healthy Teeth
Preventing dental problems is so much easier (and cheaper) than treating them. That’s the role of general and preventative dentistry. Preventive dental services like oral exams and routine cleanings can help you avoid dental problems that can ruin your smile. Through preventive dental care, your Littleton, Colorado dentist from High Forest Dental can keep your gums and teeth in optimal health.
Preventive Dental Services
Dr. Allison Brown offers the following preventive dental services to patients in our care:
- Bi-annual oral exams
- Comprehensive dental cleanings
- Digital X-rays
- Fluoride treatments in preventative content
During an oral exam, Dr. Brown will thoroughly inspect your teeth, gums, and mouth to uncover signs of dental problems early. Treating problems in earlier stages can save you the time and expense of costly treatments later on. It also protects your teeth and gums from extensive damage to preserve your smile. X-raying your teeth enables your dentist to check for hidden problems under the gum line and between teeth, such as cavities and bone loss due to periodontal disease.
For dental cleaning, we will remove all plaque and tartar from your teeth to prevent decay and gum disease. We’ll also remove surface stains that tarnish your smile and polish your pearly whites to make them shine. If you desire, we’ll add a fluoride treatment to your preventive dentistry routine to protect your teeth from cavities and aid with tooth sensitivity.
