Why Preventive Dentistry Matters
As your dentist, Dr. Talmood believes in the importance of keeping your smile healthy. Our goal isn’t to simply patch up problems, but to do everything we can to protect your teeth and gums and keep problems from happening in the first place.
5 Benefits of Consistent Dental Care
When you pair healthy daily dental care habits with regular visits from the dentist, it goes a long way toward helping you enjoy a smile that lasts. Here are just some of the benefits you receive with diligent professional and at-home care.
- Better oral health – Regular dental visits make it easier for the dentist to catch issues early and stop them from progressing, helping your smile look and feel healthier.
- More comfortable treatment – The healthier your mouth is, the faster, gentler, and more effective your treatment will be.
- Better savings – Good health means fewer restorative procedures, reducing your dental expenses.
- Fresher breath – A healthy mouth stays fresh longer and is more pleasant for you and those around you.
- Greater confidence – A healthy smile helps you feel more confident, and people around you will take notice.
What Services Do You Provide?
To ensure that you receive the care and protection you need, we provide a comprehensive range of dental services. You can count on our practice for:
Dental Exams: What to Expect
Exams are designed to check the health of your teeth, gums, jaws, and other aspects of your oral health. First, the dentist looks for any issues with the teeth, including tooth decay, damage, or wear, as well as the state of restorations like fillings or crowns.
Next, the dentist examines the gums for signs of gum disease, such as swelling, bleeding, or deep pockets around the teeth roots. Finally, an x-ray allows us to see below your gum line to search for issues that may be hidden.
Our dental office is equipped with various high-tech dental tools to ensure a thorough exam. These include digital x-rays, and intraoral cameras, which make it easier for the dentist to see things and to show you what she sees as well.
Dental Cleanings: What to Expect
A dental cleaning helps to protect your healthy smile by doing what normal brushing and flossing can’t. Using specialized dental tools, we can clean hardened plaque and tartar from the enamel, including below the gum line. This reduces your chances of cavities and gum disease.
A thorough polishing helps to remove surface stains and smooth out your enamel, giving your teeth a healthy luster. A final fluoride treatment promotes healthy enamel. Once completed, a professional cleaning leaves your mouth looking and feeling clean and fresh.
Are Cleanings and Exams Different for Children?
As a family dentist, Dr. Talmood cares for patients of all ages, including children. Many treatments are the same between children and adults. However, with children, we are careful to monitor their dental development as well. Making sure baby teeth are healthy and properly aligned helps to ensure that their adult smiles will be healthier overall. Since children are still learning to care for their teeth, we are careful to look for any signs of tooth decay.
What If I Don’t Like the Way My Smile Looks?
Some aesthetic issues can be corrected by treating the underlying health issues, such as cavities, gum disease, or misalignments. However, when your smile is healthy, but you still aren’t happy with your appearance, you may find a solution in cosmetic dentistry.
Dr. Talmood can consult with you regarding what you’d like to change about your smile. Depending on your situation and goals, she can recommend treatments or solutions to help you achieve a smile you’ll be proud to show.
