What is preventive dentistry?

Preventive dentistry in Pikesville, MD provides the framework for a life-long healthy smile. And it offers all the dental services you need to lower your cavity and gum disease risks.

The American Dental Association recommends a dental checkup and professional teeth cleaning at least twice per year as part of preventive dentistry. If you have an oral health condition, we alter this schedule, of course, to address the problem correctly.

Your preventive dentistry exam includes a comprehensive checkup, an oral cancer screening, and x-rays as needed. Your professional teeth cleaning includes removing stubborn plaque and bacteria to reduce your risks for cavities and gum disease.  

During your dental checkup, your dentist may diagnose a cavity or emerging issue before it becomes a costly and time-consuming problem. One of the goals of preventive dentistry is to give you a comfortable smile that does not “need work” down the line.

Preventive dentistry also means brushing and flossing regularly at home. A good oral hygiene routine—two to three times per day—helps keep your teeth and gums healthy between routine exams.
