Preventive Dentistry at Sierra Dental Health: A Patient Focused Experience
Preventive dentistry helps you maintain good oral health, and it can save you time and money over time. You should brush and floss daily, and you should also eat a balanced diet. However, even if you’re vigilant with caring for your teeth, it’s important that you schedule routine dental exams with Sierra Dental Health in Fontana, CA.
What Should I Expect from a Routine Dental Exam at Sierra Dental Health?
From the minute you walk into our office, we ensure that you have a positive experience. After you check in with our front office attendant, we work quickly to take you back to our exam rooms. Depending on your dental history, we may take some radiographs of your teeth to allow us to look for potential problems like cavities, impacted teeth, or tooth decay.
After this, you’ll be seen by one of our experienced hygienists. They’ll conduct your routine teeth cleaning and one of our dentists, such as Dr. Hoa Nguyen, will examine your mouth for any issues. Your dentist will let you know if there are any problems, and if necessary, they’ll recommend a treatment plan. We’ll also go over preventive dentistry practices that you should be doing every day. We work quickly and efficiently to ensure you’re have a positive experience at Sierra Dental Health.
Why Should I Care About Preventive Dentistry?
Preventive dentistry is the best way to prevent dental problems from happening before they occur. For example, preventive dentistry decreases the chance of developing cavities, gingivitis, enamel loss, and periodontists. In other words, it helps your teeth stay clean, strong, and white. Adults should care about preventive dentistry because it can help them keep their natural teeth. Also, it helps ensure that children develop strong and healthy adult teeth. Because the mouth is an ideal place for bacteria growth, maintaining good oral health improves your overall health too.
Most people should schedule annual routine dental appointments with Sierra Dental Health to maintain optimal oral health. However, if you have a higher risk of developing dental problems, we may recommend more frequent visits.
If you currently don’t have a general dentist, or you’re looking for a new one, we invite you to make an appointment with us. We look forward to seeing you in person.
