Choose Preventive Care For Optimal Dental Health Results

Preventive dental care is a way to keep your teeth in good shape and healthy. The importance of incorporating this into your regular schedule can save you a lot of trouble in the long term. Here at American dental care, we treat all our customers with the utmost care, addressing three key factors:

·         Bacterial load

·         Nutritional adequacy

·         Medical issues

These steps are very important in the sense that the mouth is connected to the rest of the body and many medical issues can be connected to the health of the teeth too.

At American dental care, we believe that our patients deserve the best dental treatment so our main goal is to help them attain the highest health level possible. The desired, optimal health of the teeth is a crucial part of both physical appearance and emotional well-being of a patient and this is why we try to tend all our community members with both compassion and respect. Being the most advanced preventive dental care providers in the area gives us the chance to offer you the service of some of the best dentists in Dover, Delaware.

What is preventive dentistry?

Preventive dentistry is a branch in dentistry that deals with preventing the problems before they occur. This is a combination of healthy practices at home, routine cleanings at the dentist’s office, x-rays, tooth decay treatments and other treatments that ensure the health of your teeth.

Generally, there are two key things you should do to ensure that your mouth remains healthy and those are:

·         Good oral hygiene

·         Regular preventive care

American dental care helps you understand the importance of taking good oral hygiene care and what this combines: proper brushing and flossing of your teeth. The second point of regular preventive care comprises of visiting one of our highly competent dentists at least twice a year for regular check-ups and routine cleanings of your teeth.

Routine cleanings

Tooth brushing is very important for maintaining the general health of the mouth, but there are certain stains and calculus that cannot be removed by this method. You may brush your teeth as recommended, but these occurrences happen regardless of how serious you are about your oral hygiene at home and this is why everyone needs to do some regular teeth cleaning. This combines special tools that remove the traces of the stains and the calculus and keep your teeth white and healthy. A simple visit at our dentists’ office at American dental care can free you of all unwanted stains easily and effectively.

Checkups

Having your teeth cleaned regularly is the first step to healthy mouth. After a cleaning, one has to do a routine checkup with one of the best dentists in Dover, Delaware. Visit American dental care so that a professional can conduct a thorough exam of the tissues of your mouth, including an oral cancer screening.

Technology used in preventive care

We use the most advanced types of technology for preventive care at American dental care: x-rays and intraoral camera. These help us decide on the treatment for our patients’ needs and give us the advantage of seeing the condition of your teeth in a more detailed, concise manner.

X-rays help the dentist detect a disease or tooth damage that is not visible to the naked eye. The intraoral cameras are tiny machines that project images on the monitor of our dentists. These are often used for education of the patients about the condition of their mouth, especially in cases of cavity or tooth that is fractured.

How often should you visit the dentist?


The dentists at American dental care recommend the patients a minimum of two regular visits at the dentist’s every year, including both cleaning and checkups. For the patients at risk for developing oral health problems, we recommend more regular meetings in order to maintain oral health. These patients include:

·         Diabetics

·         Those who suffer from immune disorders

·         Those with periodontal diseases

·         Expecting mothers

·         Those with gum issues

·         Preventive treatments

·         Adults

Adults are at higher risk of having a teeth issue such as a cavity. This is why a preventive treatment for adults includes in-office fluoride varnish treatments. This mineral is a key ingredient for maintaining healthy teeth and can also be found in prescribed fluoride toothpastes.

Children

American dental care offers care for people of all ages. The routine for children is quite similar to that of adults and includes two routine exams and cleaning yearly. Additionally, fluoride varnish is also used in combination with dental sealants that protect the teeth while they are developing in the child’s mouth. The fluoride varnish is a temporary, safe to use coating that protects the tooth until the moment it gets in contact with a tooth paste and a toothbrush. The dental sealants we use are plastic coasting that our professionals apply to the molars and premolars in order to seal out the bacteria that can decay the teeth.
