Preventive Dentistry


Many dental conditions can be prevented by maintaining a stellar oral hygiene routine and visiting us bi-yearly for professional cleanings. If you feel oral pain or sudden tooth sensitivity, make sure you visit your dentist near Elk Grove Village so we can diagnose and treat your ailment. Continue reading to learn about the benefits of preventive dentistry.


What Is Preventive Dentistry?

Visiting us regularly for cleanings and checkups help keep your oral health in good shape. Our dentists are able to remove tartar and plaque that’s close to the gums—especially in places that you cannot reach with just a toothbrush and floss. We can also take X-rays to look out for signs of periodontal disease, tooth decay, or fractures. Lastly, we are able to give you advice on how to properly care for your mouth until your next visit.


The Benefits

Preventive dentistry is able to help support your at-home dental care, with benefits that include:

  • Protecting your overall long-term health: There’s a connection between heart disease and gum disease, but when you visit us, we are able to spot dental problems early on and treat them from the beginning.
  • Detecting gum disease: When you come in for a cleaning, our dentists look for early on-set gum disease, something you may not be able to spot on your own.
  • Saving money on future procedures: With regular exams, you have the ability to detect and/or cavities early on, saving money and time on future treatments for potential tooth decay.
