Preventive care appointments are essential to preserving the health of your smile. These visits allow us to monitor your oral health and identify potential problems. Most of our healthy patients benefit from a visit every 6 months. People with gum disease may need to visit us more frequently. By working closely with you, the dentists at Crown Dental Group in National City, CA can help you reduce the amount of dental treatment that you need in the future.
The first step to preventive care is a thorough examination by one of our dentists. We will assess the health of your teeth, current restorations, and screen for pathology such as oral cancer. If any treatments are needed, we will discuss them at that time. Please feel free to ask us about any concerns that you have. We also offer complimentary orthodontic and 3rd molar (wisdom tooth) evaluations.
Each of our Registered Dental Hygienists use state-of-the-art equipment to provide thorough, gentle cleanings. They also work with you to create a custom home hygiene plan to help you clean those hard-to-reach areas. Cleanings are essential to preventing gum disease, caused by excessive tartar and plaque buildup.
Digital X-Rays and CT Cone Beam Imaging
Our digital and 3D imaging equipment provide excellent diagnostic capabilities. This allows us to pinpoint problems early, when they are less invasive to treat. 3D imaging also impacts the success of procedures like dental implants.
Fluoride Treatment is useful for maintaining strong tooth enamel. Not only does it make your teeth more resistant to decay, it is also effective as a desensitizer.
Gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss. You may never realize that you have it until it is too late. Our dentists and hygienists will carefully screen for areas of bone loss and tissue detachment. This pinpoints localized areas of infection so that more advanced therapies are not needed later on.
