Preventative dentistry focuses on averting dental problems before they start or preventing the progression of oral diseases. It is often less expensive, less time-consuming, and results in a more pleasant dental experience compared to restorative dentistry.
Deer Run Dentistry offers a range of preventative dentistry services geared toward helping you maintain healthy teeth and a beautiful smile.
If you live in Greenwood Village, CO, you can visit the Deer Run Dentistry for preventative services like routine exams, professional dental cleaning, and dental sealants.
Routine dental exams are an integral part of maintaining proper oral hygiene and dental health. Regular exams enable Dr. Devin Rentz and his team to monitor your dental health and identify any developing issues.
Some dental issues, like gum disease, can manifest no symptoms, and only an experienced professional can detect them. Deer Run Dentistry has a team with the proper expertise to identify and diagnose tooth decay, periodontal disease, oral cancer, and other oral health issues.
If they detect any problems, they will offer appropriate interventions before these problems become bigger and more expensive.
Similar to a digital camera, this technology gives our staff the ability to take digital x-rays at our Greenwood Village dental office. The results are instantaneous and are displayed on monitors for both the patient and doctor to review. Digital radiography and intra-oral cameras help with communication and education between patients and our staff.
The depressions and grooves on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth are can be difficult to clean of food particles and bacteria, which are major causes of tooth decay.
Tooth sealants help to seal the grooves and depressions, inhibiting food particles and bacteria from invading these vulnerable areas. The Deer Run Dentistry offers dental sealants for both children and adults.
Silver Diamine Fluoride
Silver diamine fluoride (SDF) is a liquid substance used to help prevent small cavities (or caries) from growing and/or spreading to other teeth. Other benefits of SDF are that it can provide immediate relief from dental hypersensitivity and it can also help to harden softened dentin making it more resistant to acid and abrasion.
While this is a preventative measure, it does not always eliminate the need for dental fillings or crowns if the function or integrity of the tooth is compromised.
