Preventive Dentistry Q & A

Preventive dentistry is the practice of maintaining good oral hygiene and keeping your mouth healthy. Milano Dental Studio builds long-lasting relationships with adults of all ages, encouraging bi-annual professional cleanings, dental exams and oral cancer screenings.

Preventive dentistry monitors your overall oral health, removes plaque and tartar buildup during cleanings, and keeps your teeth strong and white. Instructing patients on proper brushing and flossing techniques will help you maintain your oral health at home.

Oral health is connected to the overall health of your body. By removing bacteria in your mouth, you can reduce your risk of caries, gingivitis and other dental problems.

Other preventive dentistry benefits include:

  • Diagnosing a dental condition early on to avoid extensive treatment
  • Mouth, jaw, and neck exams to detect an underlying condition such as TMJ disorders
  • Early detection of oral cancer
  • One-on-one time with your dental provider to express your dental concerns

Preventive dentistry is especially necessary if you have been diagnosed with diabetes, osteoporosis, any type of cancer, or are pregnant. These conditions can affect your oral health, and your provider will work with you to maintain a strong and healthy dentition.

We offer the following services:

  • Professional cleanings
  • Oral cancer screenings
  • Routine oral exams and evaluations
  • X-rays
