The most important factor for a healthy mouth is preventive care. Preventive care from your dentists in Stamford include regular cleanings and dental exams, sealants, and fluoride treatments. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends a professional dental cleaning and dental examination every six months. Your dentists in Stamford may also perform scaling and root planing, which is necessary when there are signs of bone loss. Regular deep cleanings and exams help to prevent and avoid tooth decay, tooth loss and bone loss.
At Pearl Dental, we’ll also provide patients with fluoride treatments every six months as recommended by the ADA.
Plaque buildup can hide in the grooves and crevices found on the top of molars and premolars. Sealants are made from a clear plastic and act as a protective coating over each tooth’s groove or fissure.
