What is Preventive Dentistry?

Preventive dentistry focuses on preventing oral health problems from occurring. By practicing good oral hygiene, undergoing regular dental checkups and cleanings, and taking advantage of other preventive measures from our Wayne dentist, patients can better protect their teeth and gums from decay, disease, and other dental problems. Patients should visit Dr. Charara once every six months to maintain their healthy, beautiful smiles. 

Our Preventive Dentistry Services

Dental Cleanings & Exams

One of the most important components of preventive dentistry is regular cleanings and dental exams. During a professional dental cleaning, our dental hygienist will remove any plaque and tartar that has accumulated on the teeth, and polish the teeth to remove any surface stains. This process improves your smile while also helping to prevent tooth decay and gum disease.

Digital X-Rays

Another important part of preventive dentistry is the use of digital X-rays. Digital X-rays are a type of dental imaging that allows Dr. Charara to obtain a detailed view of a patient’s teeth and gums. This information allows him to diagnose and treat dental problems before they become more serious. Additionally, dental X-rays expose patients to significantly less radiation than traditional X-rays.

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride is a mineral that is essential for strong, healthy teeth. It helps to prevent tooth decay and can even reverse early decay. Fluoride treatments strengthen the enamel to prevent cavities. They’re commonly recommended for individuals who are at an increased risk of cavities, such as children and those with a history of cavities.

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are a preventive dental service that helps to protect teeth from decay. A dental sealant is a thin, protective coating that is applied to the chewing surfaces of the molars. This coating helps to prevent food particles and bacteria from becoming trapped in the grooves of the molars, preventing tooth decay.

Nightguards for Bruxism

Dr. Charara offers customized nightguards for bruxism. Bruxism is a condition in which a person grinds or clenches their teeth while they sleep. A nightguard helps prevent teeth grinding so patients can get a better night’s sleep and protect their teeth from the damaging effects of bruxism.

ARESTIN® Gum Treatment

ARESTIN® is a treatment for gum disease that helps to kill bacteria and promote healing in the gums. This treatment is performed in our Wayne, MI, dental office, and involves the placement of tiny beads of antibiotic medication into the pockets between the teeth and gums. With this treatment, Dr. Charara can help patients prevent the later stages of gum disease and achieve a healthier smile.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral cancer screenings are an important part of preventive dentistry. During an oral cancer screening, Dr. Charara will examine the mouth, face, neck, and throat to look for any signs of cancer or precancerous conditions. This helps to detect oral cancer in its early stages when it is most treatable.
