Preventing tooth decay and gum disease involves brushing, flossing, limiting your consumption of sugar and periodically visiting our Pahrump dentist office for routine care. These important steps will help you and every member of your family maintain excellent oral health and beautiful smiles throughout your lives. At Pahrump Family Dental, we provide a complete preventive care program. Using state-of-the-art technology along with the most effective approaches to care, we can help to stop the onset and progress of dental disease.
Plaque is a sticky film, which gathers continuously in your mouth, harboring harmful bacteria that feed on sugar. The bacteria in plaque produce acids, which can wear away at dental enamel and irritate the tissues around your teeth to respectively cause cavities and gum disease. Fortunately, an effective oral hygiene routine can help prevent the onset of these conditions by removing plaque, before it can compromise your oral health. Brushing and flossing are of the utmost importance. However, despite your best efforts, plaque can gather in spots that only a dental professional can reach. This is the reason why periodic dental cleanings are so very important. During a professional teeth cleaning, we will gently and precisely remove accumulated plaque and tartar as well as guide you on better practices for cleaning your teeth at home. A thorough examination is another important component of a preventive visit for patients of every age. As part of this exam, our dentist will thoroughly check your teeth, gums and their supporting structures, to diagnose any conditions, which may be harmful to your oral health. Throughout your visit, our team of professionals keeps you informed and at ease, addressing any questions or concerns you may have.
