Preventive dentistry consists of several dental procedures such as regular scaling and polishing (teeth cleaning), series of intraoral x-rays, brushing techniques demonstration, fluoride application and last but not least preventive sealants.
Scaling and polishing: regular check ups approximately every 6 mouths depending on the patient’s needs
Intraoral X-rays: show the interproximal spaces between teeth. These areas can be easily decayed due to poor oral hygiene.Usually are repeated every 1,5 – 2years
Brushing technique: each patient’s oral needs are different and therefore requires different brushing approach
Fluoride application: fluoride is a substance that helps the tooth to become stronger by bonding on the tooth’s structure. It can be applied as a gel or paste. Usually is applied every 4-6 months. Uncontrolled use of fluoride can reach undesirable result called as fluorosis
Preventive Sealants: is a preventive filling and without removing any tooth structure it covers the fissures of mainly posterior teeth to prevent any occlusal cavities
