Preventive Dental Care
Preventive dental care starts at home with regular brushing and flossing. However, even if you follow the ADA’s guidelines to brush twice daily and floss once per day, oral health issues can still arise. Professional preventive dental care is essential for preventing serious oral health issues, including tooth decay, gum disease, and more, from occurring. At University Periodontal Associates in Houston TX, we provide the preventive care you need to keep your mouth functioning at, and looking, its best.
What Patients Should Know About their Teeth
Our preventive services include:
We recommend that you have at least two professional cleanings at least twice a year. During these cleanings, we use tools to rid the surfaces of your teeth from plaque (a sticky film that builds up on your teeth), tartar (hardened plaque that cannot be removed by brushing), bacteria, and other debris from the surfaces of your teeth. We also polish your teeth to clean them further and lift surface stains away. By cleaning your teeth, we help to remove any buildup, including from areas that might go overlooked during home care, to prevent tooth decay (which leads to cavities) and gum irritation (which leads to gum disease).
Professional preventive dental care helps you to keep your mouth happy and healthy by preventing serious oral health issues from occurring. If you are ready to schedule your appointment, call University Periodontal Associates in Houston at (832) 975-0990 today.
