Preventative dentistry is the early detection of dental health issues to prevent worsening and other future problems! Here at Studio Dental of River Park, we leverage technology such as 3D digital x-rays, HD intraoral cameras, and CariVu laser cameras. Using our advanced dental technology, we are able to get a very clear picture of how your oral health is. Coupled with Dr. Dang’s expertise, that clear picture allows us to detect health conditions early and make predictions as to the future of your oral health.
What can you prevent?
The technology and expertise we are equipped with enable us to catch – and subsequently provide treatment for – a variety of early onset health conditions, including:
- Gingivitis (inflammation of the gums)
- Cavities and tooth decay
- Enamel loss
- Periodontal disease (jawbone loss or damage)
Outside of oral health
Patients who have good preventative habits also are at a lower risk for developing the following secondary health conditions:
- Heart disease
- Respiratory disease
In addition to actively preventing worsening detrimental health conditions, Studio Dental’s preventative dentistry practices actually save you money! When we catch a problem early, you don’t have to go through a more complex procedure and the cure for your ailments is typically far cheaper, less intrusive, and shorter.
The mouth is the largest gateway into the body, and can be a breeding ground for bacteria! With preventative dentistry practices and habits, you can help ensure that your oral health is the best it can be, and you’ll look great because of it!
