As the old saying goes, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." This couldn't be more true than when it comes to oral health. Preventative dentistry identifies and stops any potential oral health issues before they become serious problems. A variety of steps reduce the risks that often lead to costly restorative care. With a proactive approach, preventative dentistry can improve your oral and overall health and save you money!
CHECKUPS AND CLEANINGS
The American Dental Association recommends regular dental examinations at least twice a year for children and adults of all ages. We check each tooth and the surrounding tissues during your exam, including your gums, tongue, and cheeks. We carefully inspect every tooth for cavities, assess gum health, and look for any damage, including broken or worn teeth. We also provide oral cancer screenings and examine your temporomandibular joints (TMJs). A thorough approach allows us to create a personalized treatment plan just for you.
To assess the areas beyond the visual exam, we may take a complete set of digital X-ray images of the teeth and jaws. This allows us to diagnose cavities, identify any pre-existing bone loss, and check for abnormalities in the jaw. Radiographs are highly recommended once a year and required before certain dental procedures.
KEEPING YOU INFORMED
We constantly research the most modern techniques in dentistry to identify symptoms and warning signs that may become future issues. Regularly scheduled Check-Ups and Cleanings allow our skilled team of professionals to diagnose and treat common problems such as tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth fractures. We prioritize patient education and awareness of current oral health to help you make the best decisions for your wellness.
We'll help you make the right steps to protect your oral health. Give Beechmont Smiles a call at (513) 231-9610 today to schedule your appointment at our office in the Mt. Washington neighborhood of Cincinnati.
