Preventative Care Q & A

What is preventive dental care?

Preventive dental care is focused on patient education and the importance of consistent daily hygiene practices to maintain the health of your gums and teeth.

Preventive dental care can help you lower your risk of cavities, gum disease, and other dental problems by protecting your dental health with effective preventive dental treatments, such as dental cleanings and fillings. 

Effective preventive dentistry combines professional dental treatments in the office with your at-home oral care to give you the best possible chance of having optimal oral health.

What are some of the available preventive dental treatments?

Dentistry at Kennesaw Point offers a range of effective preventive dental treatments, such as:

Teeth cleaning

Teeth cleaning can remove built-up tartar and plaque that can cause gum disease, bad breath, cavities, and other problems.

Full dental examination

Dr. Kalantari performs a full dental examination of your gums, teeth, and mouth to check for signs of disease and other issues.

Fillings

Dr. Kalantari bonds your filling directly to your tooth enamel to fill a space or treat a cavity. Fillings are designed to fill a hole in your tooth, usually after the removal of tooth decay. Fillings can prevent tooth decay, support your tooth structure, and restore your dental health. 

You might choose white tooth-colored fillings—a discreet choice that blends in with your natural teeth. Tooth-colored fillings are typically made from plastic or porcelain compounds.

In-office X-rays

Dentistry at Kennesaw Point offers convenient and effective in-office X-rays to gain a clearer picture of your dental health and check for damage, impacted teeth, and jawbone health, or to look for tumors or cysts.

How often should I visit my dentist?

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends visiting your dentist at least twice a year for professional cleanings and management of any conditions that might be developing.

If you stay on top of your recommended dental visits, Dr. Kalantari can stop dental disease in the earlier stages to protect your dental health and minimize your expenses.

Preventive care offers many benefits and detecting dental problems early can allow Dr. Kalantari to repair the problems before they cause permanent damage and negatively affect your smile.
