Preventative Dentistry Near You
Are you aware that your Oral Health and Overall Health are inextricably linked? Poor Oral Health can negatively affect how you look, your overall energy level and how others interact with you.
In addition to our other services, we provide patients with preventative and general care treatments to maintain oral health for a sparkling smile. At Acu Dental, we are serious about your health so we take great care to assess your Oral Health status and develop a preventative maintenance program personalized to your needs.
Your personal program will include regular hygiene treatments, periodic diagnostic X Rays, and a full assessment of your teeth and the surrounding gum and bone tissue supporting them.
The Importance of Check-Ups
There are typically no obvious signs of gum disease or tooth decay in the early stages. Frequent dental check-ups will allow your dentist to detect oral health problems before they progress into more serious issues.
During a dental cleaning, our hygienists will:
- Remove the plaque and tartar from your teeth
- Floss your teeth
- Polish your teeth
- Provide you with a fluoride treatment to strengthen your teeth
Our dentist will examine your mouth for tooth decay, cavities, gum disease, and any other abnormalities.
We will identify any existing problem areas and educate you on how to improve the overall health of your gums and mouth. We also offer oral cancer screening using the VELscope system, as early detection is key to defeating this type of cancer.
After the check-up, we will provide you with an opportunity to discuss any oral health concerns you may have. Our dentist will be happy to provide you with tips on how to improve your oral health.
Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is key to having a healthy, confident, beautiful smile.
