How to Prevent Damage to the Teeth

How to Prevent Damage to the TeethOur dentist in Beverly Hills is capable of handling any dental problems that may occur; however, it is best for us and for the patient to practice preventive dentistry so that those problems do not occur at all. One of the best ways to prevent tooth decay and gum disease is by scheduling biannual dental examinations so that we can detect problems before they get more severe and to make sure you are practicing good oral habits on your own time. You can save yourself a lot of time, money, and hassle by practicing some fairly simple techniques.

Our expert in preventive dentistry in Beverly Hills will take some X-rays during your exam to make sure no problems are developing underneath the gum line. We will also give you a thorough dental cleaning to remove any plaque and tartar. A professional cleaning is much more thorough than one you can give yourself at home, so it is very effective at dealing with an accumulation of bacteria. We may also recommend fluoride treatments to strengthen your enamel and reduce your risk of tooth decay.

At the end of the exam, we will ask you about your oral hygiene habits and make any recommendations on areas where you can improve.
