Preventative Dentistry

Preventative Dentistry Overview

Firstly, lets define preventative dentistry.  As the name suggests preventative dentistry are measures one can take today to prevent oral health issues tomorrow. Below, we’ve gone ahead and listed some of the products and services we offer for preventative dentistry.

Dental Cleanings

Teeth cleanings are part of oral hygiene and involves the removal of dental plaque from teeth with the intention of preventing cavities, gingivitis, and periodontal disease. 

Regular dental cleanings are an important part of preventative dental care. How often should you get dental cleanings? 

Many people are fine with two visits per year while some may require more. It all depends on your personal needs and oral health condition.

Your dental hygienist will recommend the amount of annual visits that’s right for you.

Dental Exams

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends a routine check-up roughly twice a year. 

Moreover, a routine appointment with dentists will typically include a professional cleaning and a detailed examination of your teeth, gums and other oral tissues.

Generally, you will want to get a dental exam once or twice a year. Getting a dental exam is a great way to diagnose the condition of your oral health. 

It’s also a good way to catch oral problems before they turn into more complicated and complicated situations.

Oral Cancer Screening

This is probably one of the most important preventive services we offer. Cancer comes out of nowhere.

Cancer does not discriminate, you could be young and healthy, and then BOOM! Tragic news, you got cancer. Especially in today’s world where we are exposed to so many things that can cause cancer.

Our doctors will look for signs of cancer or precancerous conditions in the mouth. The goal is to identify mouth cancer early.

Periodontal Maintenance

Periodontal maintenance scaling is needed to maintain gum and bone health.  Unlike regular cleanings, this treatment is prescribed to combat periodontal disease.

This procedure includes removal of plaque and tartar from above and below the gum line, all the way down the length of each tooth to where the root, gum, and bone meet.


Mouthguards/ Nighguards/ Bruxism

If you suffer from bruxism (teeth grinding), we may also recommend a night guard. 

Many patients grind their teeth while they sleep, causing unnecessary wear and tear to their teeth.  Mouthguards are also great to protect your teeth during contact sports.

Dr. Cho was so kind and really listened to my concerns with dental work and worked with me to give me the smile of my dreams. I am so grateful to him for the kindness and patience he showed and the effort he made to give me such a beautiful smile. Thank you for everything.

The staff and doctor were some of the nicest staff I have ever been helped by. They made me feel comfortable and safe in their office. The doctor was beyond amazing. I have never had a dentist be as focused and present on my appointment as her. I also have never had a dentist show me all of the anatomy we were looking at and explain what they are looking for in such detail. She was amazing! I will continue to have my dentistry needs taken care of at this office for a long long time.
