Tips for Preventing Tooth Decay

Tips for Preventing Tooth DecayPreventive dentistry is a whole lot easier on everyone than restorative dentistry because preventing problems is much easier to handle than repairing problems. Obviously this means brushing your teeth twice a day or after every meal. And you should also be flossing your teeth at least once a day to remove bacteria caught between the teeth and gums. But part of your preventive dentistry plan should also include regular visit to our dentist in Beverly Hills because we have the tools to detect problems and treat them before they get out of hand.

The American Dental Association recommends seeing a dentist twice a year for a dental cleaning and examination. Our expert in preventive dentistry in Beverly Hills will clean your teeth to remove any plaque and extrinsic stains. We will also need to take X-rays to examine your underlying oral structures to see if any problems are developing that cannot be seen with the naked eye.

Our dentist also offers several techniques to keep your teeth and gums in tip-top shape. We can give you a fluoride treatment to help remineralize your teeth and to strengthen the enamel. We can also apply dental sealants to your teeth, which make it much harder for cavities to develop. Talk to your dentist about your preventative options.
