General and preventive dental care

It has been rightly said that prevention is better than cure. And though the importance of brushing and flossing has been reinforced time and again by dentists, people still don’t follow the ideal oral hygiene regimen. The branch of dentistry that deals with the prevention of oral diseases are called preventive dentistry and following are some of the dental procedures that come under this branch.

General and preventive dental care

Use of Ortodonthics:

1. Comprehensive oral examination – your dentist at Bello Dental will perform a thorough examination of your teeth, gums and oral tissues to make sure you don’t have cavities, gum diseases or subtle signs of other diseases such as oral cancer. The screening procedure for oral cancer is altogether different and may involve taking specimen for biopsy from the site of disease.

 

2. Digital x-rays – a comprehensive oral examination is incomplete without oral radiographs. The radiographs help your dentist at Bello Dental to assess multiple aspects of tooth health such as the extent of caries, root infection, abscess formation, presence of cysts in the bone, bone health, presence of impacted teeth and their orientation, anomalies of root of a particular tooth and many more such things which can only be visible through radiographs. With the introduction of digital x-ray machines, the radiation exposure has been drastically reduced and can be said to be negligible as compared to the obsolete version of x-ray machines. This has not only made the patients safe from radiation exposure but also the dental staff has peace of mind.

 

3. Sealants – Most teeth have grooves as part of their anatomy. These pits and fissures act as the settlement point of food particles, debris and bacterial plaque which can then initiate caries formation. To prevent it from happening, these pits and fissures are sealed by resins by your dentist at Bello Dental.

 

4. Fillings – In general practice fillings are placed in teeth for various reasons. Once the cavities are removed, the tooth is restored to its original anatomy using the restorative materials which helps to maintain the function of the tooth.

 

5. Crowns and bridges – Crowns and bridges are an integral part of general dentistry at Bello Dental and serve multiple purposes. Crowns not only help with tooth discoloration but also provide strength to severely damaged tooth or a root canal treated tooth. Bridges help close gaps between teeth caused by any reason such as gum disease or irreversibly damaged teeth that had to be extracted.

 

6. Scaling and polishing – Scaling or cleaning procedure is done by your dentist at Bello Dental to remove the soft plaque that forms a layer on the tooth surface and anchors bacterial colonies that damage gums by causing inflammation in them. Scaling also removes tartar that forms once the plaque hardens by mineralization process. This tartar is very detrimental to the health of bone supporting the tooth since it causes bone resorption and eventual loss of tooth.

 

7. Patient education – The most important aspect of preventive and general dentistry is to educate the patient. This is the most important prophylactic measure in which we believe at Bello Dental. Proper brushing technique is explained to the patient using models and is customized according to each patient’s need since gum surgeries require special technique of brushing and care.

Very professional and kind service. When I called in about the amount of pain I was i over my root canal, they took me... in without an appointment. He saw me right away as soon as he could and was very cautious with my tooth. He presented options for me that I could afford and helped me with my tooth pain. I left there happy with the advice and service I was given and I am strongly considering going back for any of my other dental problems.read more

I visited Bello Dental for whitening and wisdom tooth consultation. From start to finish, Dr. Kang and his staff were... nothing but professional, friendly, and gentle. I had my teeth whitened and the entire procedure was quick and painless, with no sensitivity during or after. Everyone checked in on me frequently throughout the procedure, which I appreciated as someone who was having teeth whitened for the first time. Dr. Kang was thorough and attentive, and honest with his consultation for my wisdom tooth removal. The facilities are all new and spotless and everyone I interacted with was so friendly and efficient in everything they did. I would high recommend Bello Dental for great dental care and/or whitening!read more
