Preventive Services

Preventive dentistry is the modern way of reducing the amount of dental treatment necessary to maintain a healthy mouth. It helps you to keep your teeth healthy. The two major causes of tooth loss are decay and gum disease. The better we prevent or deal with these two problems, the more chance you have of keeping your teeth for life.

At Schuyler Family Dental, the joint efforts of our Dr. Schuyler, the hygienist and the patient, can help to prevent the need for treatment, and so avoid the traditional pattern of fillings and extractions.

A course of treatment may be recommended to get your mouth into good condition, and a maintenance plan will be worked out to help you keep it that way.

Everyone can benefit from a preventative maintenance plan. Dr. Schuyler will first assess your teeth and gums, and discuss with you any treatment that you need. The main aim is to help you get your mouth really healthy, to try and prevent any dental problems returning. In a healthy mouth, it is unlikely that decay or gum disease will continue to be a problem.

Dr. Schuyler or a hygienist will show you the best methods of brushing and flossing to remove the bacterial ‘plaque’ which forms constantly on your teeth and gums. When you eat or drink something sugary, the plaque turns the sugar into acid, which will cause tooth decay. Plaque will also cause gum inflammation if it is not regularly and thoroughly removed. The hard tartar (calculus) which builds up on the teeth also starts off as plaque.

  • Dr. Schuyler will recommend oral care products that are the best ones for you to use.

  • The hygienist will discuss diet and any habits such as smoking and drinking with you, and how they can impact the health of your teeth.

  • Dr. Schuyler will also make sure that all your fillings are in good repair and there are no rough edges to make cleaning difficult.
