Preventing tooth decay and gum disease involves an effective oral hygiene regimen at home and periodic visits to our Parhump dental office for routine care. At Pahrump Family Dental, we recommend biannual checkups and professional cleanings, to stop the onset and progression of dental disease. By keeping up with preventive checkups, you are taking important steps to ensure a lifetime of healthy, beautiful smiles, for you and your family.
Inside your mouth is a sticky film, which gathers continuously, and harbors bacteria, which are harmful to your dental health. This biofilm is known as plaque, and it is the main cause of cavities and periodontal disease. Brushing your teeth and flossing daily help to rid your mouth of plaque and prevent its detrimental effects, however, your home care routine alone cannot eliminate plaque that has accumulated and calcified in difficult to reach spots. For this reason it is important to also visit our Pahrump dental office for thorough, professional teeth cleanings. As dental healthcare professionals, we will remove plaque and tartar from surfaces your toothbrush can’t access, and will provide you with instruction and useful tips on how you can improve caring for your teeth at home. We take special care to educate our youngest patients on the importance and responsibility of oral hygiene, and provide our pediatric patients with fluoride treatments and dental sealants, for extra cavity protection. Part of a preventive visit also includes a comprehensive examination of your teeth, gums and their supporting bone structures. Our dentist strives to diagnose oral health conditions from the outset, which allows us to deliver the most straightforward and effective course of treatment.
