Why Should I Get Preventative Dentistry?

Preventative dentistry is a comprehensive approach to oral health that involves regular dental check-ups, cleanings, and patient education. It's a proactive measure that helps to identify potential dental problems before they become serious issues. By regularly visiting Dr. Sanae Berrada at Fairfax Dental Esthetics, you can maintain optimal oral health, prevent the progression of dental disease, and avoid costly treatments down the line. It's not just about keeping your teeth clean and cavity-free; preventative dentistry also plays a crucial role in protecting your overall health, as many systemic diseases can be detected in their early stages by a dental examination.

Preventative dentistry at Fairfax Dental Esthetics begins with a comprehensive dental examination. Dr. Berrada will check your teeth, gums, and mouth for any signs of disease or decay. This may include X-rays to get a detailed view of your teeth and jaw. Following the examination, you'll receive a professional cleaning to remove any plaque or tartar build-up and to polish your teeth. Dr. Berrada will also provide personalized advice on how to improve your at-home oral hygiene routine, including brushing, flossing, and diet. Regular check-ups every six months are recommended to maintain your oral health.

Benefits Of Preventative Dentistry

Early detection of dental issues can save you time, money, and discomfort in the long run.

Professional dental cleanings can remove plaque and tartar that regular brushing and flossing can't reach.

Preventative dentistry can help to maintain your overall health by detecting signs of systemic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease.

How We Can Alleviate Your TMJ Pain:

Mouth Guards

Mouth guards are an essential protective appliance for those with Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJ/TMD). These specially designed guards not only protect teeth from impact injuries but also provide crucial cushioning to reduce trauma to the mouth, teeth, and jaw - areas particularly sensitive in TMJ/TMD patients.

Night Guards

For patients who experience bruxism, or teeth grinding, our team at Lowes Island Dentistry in Sterling, VA encourages you to be fitted for a night guard. Night guards, or bite guards, help to protect your teeth from crushing and grinding of teeth by providing a protective layer between your teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions

Check out these frequently asked questions, or call us to speak with our team.

What Does Preventative Dentistry Include?

Preventative dentistry includes regular dental check-ups, professional cleanings, dental X-rays (if necessary), and patient education on proper at-home oral hygiene practices. It may also include fluoride treatments or dental sealants for further protection against tooth decay.

Why Is Preventative Dentistry Important?

Preventative dentistry is important because it helps to maintain your oral health and prevent dental diseases before they start. Regular dental visits can help identify potential issues early, when they are easier and less expensive to treat. Plus, many systemic diseases, like diabetes and heart disease, can show early signs in your oral health, so preventative care can also help protect your overall health.

How Often Should I Visit The Dentist For Preventative Dentistry?

It's generally recommended to visit the dentist for preventative dentistry every six months. However, depending on your specific oral health needs, Dr. Berrada may recommend more frequent visits.
