Expert Preventative Dental Care in Burlington, ON
The most effective method of treating dental decay is prevention. Routine brushing and flossing and regular check-ups with your dentist will prevent plaque from accumulating, which can create a potential breeding ground for harmful bacteria. Stopping the spread of bacteria reduces the chance of decay—the number one enemy of oral health.
Dr. Thelam Nguyen at Tansley Woods Dentistry in Burlington, ON specializes in preventative dental care and restoration services for patients of all ages. He works closely with each patient, at any stage in life, helping them establish and maintain healthy oral hygiene habits, and keeping their smile happy and healthy.
The Importance of Preventative Dental Care
Each visit with Dr. Nguyen is like pressing the “reset” button on your teeth. He provides quick, efficient cleanings, leaving you with a fresh, healthy smile. Preventative care goes beyond cleaning, however. Your visits will include the standard plaque removal and polishing, but it will also give Dr. Nguyen an opportunity to examine your mouth for any developing issues, such as:
At your cleaning, Dr. Nguyen can also easily apply dental sealants or fluoride treatments (if necessary) for patients with compromised enamel, or for kids who are still learning how to establish healthy oral hygiene habits. He will be able to monitor the overall health of your mouth, catching any developing issues before they become more serious or complicated to treat. Dr. Nguyen emphasizes education and communication, working closely with each patient to understand their goals and to determine the best course of treatment to achieve them. Your regular check-ups will give you the chance to ask any questions or review your oral health options with Dr. Nguyen. Dr. Nguyen values the role of discussion in oral health care, and he is always happy to talk with you about treatment options, for aesthetic or health-related goals, or to work with you to help educate your child about healthy oral hygiene habits.
Routine check-ups and regular discussions about your oral health will help make sure you and your family have healthy smiles for as long as possible.
