Preventive Care

Maintaining a relationship with your dentist can prevent simple concerns from progressing into more serious issues. The Mowry Dental specialists believe preventive care is essential to proper oral hygiene and that it’s best to be proactive rather than reactive. Call the Fremont, California, office today or book through the online portal system to take charge of your oral health.

What is preventive care?

Preventive dental care refers to the measures taken by you and your Mowry Dental provider to prevent dental problems before they occur. That includes regular cleanings, check-ups, and oral hygiene practices, such as flossing. 
Preventive dental care can help detect early signs of dental problems and catch them before they become more serious. It can also encourage optimal oral health and hygiene, which can have a positive impact on overall health. By practicing excellent oral hygiene habits and seeking regular dental care, you can help maximize your oral health.

What services does preventive care include?

Preventive care can include many services, and the Mowry Dental team invests in the best tools to remain at the forefront of dental health care. These services include routine dental check-ups and cleanings, X-rays, 3D diagnostic scanning, and oral cancer screenings. Dentsply® Sirona powers the entire office to streamline your visit and protect your health information.
During routine check-ups, a Mowry Dental expert checks for signs of common dental concerns. X-rays help to identify cavities and other dental issues that may not be easily discernible. Fluoride treatments help strengthen tooth enamel, while sealants can protect your molars
from decay. 
These preventive care services encourage optimal oral health and prevent the need for more extensive and costly dental procedures in the future.

What prevention techniques can I do at home to improve my oral hygiene?

Preventive care starts at home, and there are many things you can do to support your oral health. Here are some preventive measures:

  • Brush your teeth daily, preferably twice a day or after every meal
  • Floss daily to remove built-up plaque and bacteria
  • Use mouthwash to remove potentially harmful bacteria
  • Eat a healthy and balanced diet 
    Avoid known carcinogens, like tobacco products
  • Minimize alcohol consumption
  • Wear a mouthguard if you frequently experience bruxism or play contact sports

These tips combined with regular cleanings at Mowry Dental keep your teeth and
gums healthy.
