Preventive Dentistry

Preventive dentistry is one of the most significant branches of dentistry. It focuses on the dental procedures and hygiene practices that can help prevent or lessen the effects of an oral disease, including daily brushing and flossing. Preventing oral health problems is one of our top goals at Advanced Family Dentistry.

Teeth and Gum Care

Performing preventive dental care as advised by your dentist will aid in minimizing your chances of acquiring an oral disease such as gingivitis or periodontitis. We advise patients to brush and floss at least twice a day for preventive home care, and to visit us twice a year for teeth cleaning and oral health checkups.

Early Detection

Detection of dental disease is one of the key roles your dentist plays in your oral health care. We want to catch any dental problem early and remedy it as quickly as possible. As a result, we recommend dental exams and x-rays. On your first visit, we’ll establish a baseline for your existing oral health, and from there design a treatment or preventive plan to ensure your dental health throughout your lifetime.

 

So glad I found Dr. Kim’s practice!

Don’t normally write reviews but I had my wisdom teeth taken out by Dr. Kim, and compared to other stories I’ve heard, I think I got really lucky in having him do the procedure. He explained everything to me clearly and thoroughly. He and his staff were extremely considerate, patient and professional. Also, the method he used made my healing process so quick. My sister’s wisdom teeth extraction with a different doctor (same procedure) took a week to heal and 2 weeks for the swelling to go down completely, but I was pretty much back to normal after 3 days. For my checkups/cleanings, the receptionists and hygienists provide good customer service and they’re friendly/easy to talk to. They’re also great at reaching out and reminding you of when to come in for your next appointment. So glad I found Dr. Kim’s practice!
