Delicate Dental Arts

General & Preventive Dentistry

Ensure that your healthy-looking smile lasts a lifetime through general and preventive dentistry.

Just like the foundation of your home needs to be strong, the health of your gums, jawbone, and teeth must be good if you want your teeth to last a lifetime. They play a vital role in your daily functioning, including how you eat, speak, smile, and show emotion through facial expressions. For this reason, maintaining good oral health and developing preventive dental care habits are essential throughout your life.

Delicate Dental Arts offers comprehensive dental services to keep your and your family’s oral health in excellent condition. We focus on providing general and preventive dental care. Our team, headed by Dr. Nguyen, performs a broad array of treatment procedures and examinations to help you prevent dental problems and maintain a healthy-looking smile.

Our General and Preventive Dental Care

Our general and preventive dental procedures are designed to protect your teeth from oral health problems and help develop healthy habits to keep your teeth healthy as you age. When you visit our office, Dr. Nancy Nguyen will be at your side to make dental care convenient and comfortable for you. Your appointment with us may involve the following:

1. Dental Cleaning

Teeth cleaning is an integral part of maintaining good oral health. We recommend scheduling professional cleaning at least every six months to keep your teeth free of plaque and tartar. When plaque and tartar build up, your teeth can be at risk of developing decay and gum disease.

During your dental cleaning, our skilled dental hygienists will carefully assess your teeth and gums and remove the buildup gently and thoroughly. If any dental concerns are found, our hygienist will notify Dr. Nguyen to provide the necessary treatment immediately.

2. Regular Examinations

Your examination is an opportunity to sit down with Dr. Nguyen and discuss your current oral health condition. It can be easy to miss the first signs of tooth decay, gum disease, and other dental problems. If not identified early, these problems may become severe and eventually require complex treatment procedures.

When you visit our office for your dental examination, Dr. Nguyen will use visual and tactile diagnostic approaches as well as digital imaging to assess any developing problems with your teeth, gums, and mouth. These will help her develop the right treatment plan for your needs and keep you well informed about your oral health.

3. Preventive Solutions

Much of your preventive dental care starts with you taking care of your teeth and gums. This requires a daily commitment to oral hygiene and staying on top of your dentist’s recommended treatment plan. Proactive treatments make it easier to avoid cavities and other dental emergencies.

We also offer dental sealants and fluoride supplements to reduce children’s risk of developing tooth decay. Sealants act as protective barriers from food particles and plaque buildup. Fluoride treatments, on the other hand, work as minerals to strengthen the teeth.

To prevent injury and trauma to the teeth, Dr. Nguyen recommends wearing athletic mouthguards during sporting activities.

4. Gum Disease Treatment

Gum disease is a common dental condition that can progress silently without the patients knowing they have it. It’s the leading cause of tooth loss for American adults and is linked to many serious health conditions. Early treatment of gum disease is the best way to save you from a host of problems in the future.

If we notice early signs of gum disease during your appointment, our hygienist will immediately create a periodontal therapy plan to restore your gums. Your treatment plan may include:

  • adding antimicrobial products to your treatment routine;
  • frequent dental cleaning;
  • more specialized cleaning treatment; or
  • scaling and root planning.

These treatments can help shrink periodontal pockets, if there are any, heal swollen gums, and prevent possible gum recession.

Importance of General and Preventive Dentistry

General and preventive dentistry both play a vital role in protecting your smile and supporting your dental goals. While modern dentistry can provide solutions to a number of oral health conditions, prioritizing general and preventive dental care can offer benefits, such as:

1. Lowered Risks of Developing Dental Conditions

By keeping your teeth healthy and clean, you’re preventing a buildup of bacteria in your mouth that can make way to serious dental conditions. Similarly, maintaining good oral health can reduce your risk of developing underlying health conditions, such as heart attack, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, and cancer.

2. Healthy and Sustainable Dental Hygiene

Professional dentists also offer helpful advice on proven-effective and sustainable oral hygiene practices. They can recommend medically approved products for your dental care and give you additional information regarding cleaning techniques and the proper diet to follow.

3. Personalized Dental Treatment

Dental problems, such as gum disease and tooth decay, can escalate when left untreated. General and preventive dental checkups are an opportunity to detect early signs of these conditions and develop treatment plans to manage them safely and effectively.

4. Reduced Medical Cost

Regular appointments with your professional dentist can also save you money in the long run. When oral health conditions get diagnosed early on and treated before they become severe, you won’t have to spend additional costs for restorative and emergency treatments.
