Preventive Dentistry


Preventive dental care helps decrease the risk of gum infection, cavities, and tooth decay. Individuals should regularly do check-ups with their dentist and at-home care routines. Keeping up dental hygiene is vital to general wellbeing. Brushing daily prevents cavities, whereas flossing and continuous dental cleaning maintain teeth in their best quality.

Preventive dentistry is a mix of consistent checkups with healthy habits such as brushing and flossing. Preventive dentistry sustains good oral health. It includes regular check-ups or exams every six months, teeth brushing and flossing, and routine X-rays.

Dentists that specialize in preventive dental care are called general dentists or pediatric dentists. General dentists give their patients instructions on how to maintain oral hygiene and give them regular appointments. During these regular appointments, dentists conduct teeth cleanings, exams, X-rays, and dental fillings (if needed). Moreover, they can recognize potential issues before they arise or worsen. Pediatric dentists (children’s dentists) specialize in dental care for children. The majority of kids begin with dental care when their first tooth becomes visible. Pediatric dentists see their patients (children) regularly until their teens.

Preventive dentistry offers numerous benefits, such as:

  • Reduces risk for tooth decay development, gum infections, and other dental issues.
  • Encourages good oral hygiene habits.
  • Identifies potential problems.

Dental Scaling

All patients experience plaque buildup on their teeth. The plaque buildup is caused by the saliva and bacteria in the mouth. This creates thin layers that cover the patient’s teeth all the time. Consequently, food particles and sugars get stuck on this layer. This causes bacteria, and if left untreated, the bacteria lead to gum disease and tooth decay.
Dentists use dental scaling to eliminate the plaque which is built up on the teeth. Dentists carry out dental scaling for their patients as part of the routine checkup every six months.
Patients who don’t commit to their regular checkup appointments are more prone to develop healthy conditions. For example, leaving plaque for a long time affects the teeth and might cause inflammation of the gum.

Dental Polishing?

Dental polishing procedure gives the patient’s teeth a glossy appearance and smooth feeling. At Levantine Dental clinic, it is part of the routing cleaning appointment.
Dental scaling and teeth polishing go hand in hand. When done together, they offer cosmetic benefits to the patients’ teeth, freshens the patients’ breath, and helps prevent tooth decay.
Dental polishing is usually the final step of a teeth cleaning appointment. During this appointment, the dentists assess the patients’ teeth for any decay. Then, plaque is eliminated from the teeth’s surface through dental scaling. Finally, the patients’ teeth are polished to eliminate staining, and a protective fluoride coat is applied.
