Preventive Care Q&A

What is preventive care?

Preventive care at Keller Smiles uses highly effective prevention measures to reduce your and your family’s chance of developing dental problems. This service diminishes the risk of gum disease, tooth decay, tooth damage, discoloration, and more. 

Is preventive care right for me?

Everyone benefits from preventive dental care. In fact, this service is vital for patients of all ages to maximize their dental health and overall wellness. See the Keller Smiles preventive care specialists at least every six months to keep your smile healthy. Your dentist may suggest more frequent visits if you’re at risk of gum disease or tooth decay.

What happens during preventive care dental visits?

During preventive care appointments at Keller Smiles, friendly providers greet you and show you to a comfortable dental chair. They check your blood pressure, review your medical and dental histories, and ask if you have concerns about your oral health. 

Keller Smiles offers:

  • Dental cleanings
  • Dental X-rays
  • Digital photos
  • Head and neck exams
  • Occlusion/bite analyses
  • Tooth-by-tooth inspections
  • Oral cancer screenings
  • Gum disease assessments
  • Treatment consultations

If you’re due for X-rays, a provider uses cutting-edge technology to develop in-depth images of your teeth and jawbone.

Your dental specialist gently cleans your teeth using specialized dental tools to remove tartar and plaque. They also brush and floss your teeth. Your dentist examines your mouth to assess your overall oral health. 

Additional preventive care services available at Keller Smiles include fluoride treatments, oral appliances, and dental sealants. Sealants harden on the surface of your back molars to reduce the risk of bacteria getting trapped in the grooves of your teeth and dental decay. Oral appliances eliminate the damage associated with tooth grinding at night when you sleep.

If you need treatment for a dental problem, your dentist may suggest tooth-colored fillings, root canals, crowns, bridges, dental implants, deep dental cleanings (scaling and root planing) for gum disease, or other options. They also provide teeth whitening and ClearCorrect™ aligners to straighten crooked teeth. 

How often should I schedule preventive care appointments?

Schedule dental visits at Keller Smiles every six months for preventive care or if you experience tooth pain, discoloration, signs of gum disease, a broken tooth, or tooth damage. If you have a dental emergency, Keller Smiles offers same-day visits.
