Preventive Dentistry for the Entire Family
At Redwood Shores Dental Care, we practice dentistry for the whole family. From preventive education & regular hygiene to identifying & caring for dental issues that may arise, your continued oral health is our top priority.
Our first line if defense when it comes to preventive dentistry is seeing you regularly for dental cleanings. Each dental cleaning also includes a checkup, so we can take a look at your teeth & catch early signs of anything that may become a problem in the future. We strive to offer appointments that fit your busy schedule so you never have to miss seeing us every six months.
Children, teens, adults, seniors & those who are at risk for gum disease all have different needs when it comes to preventing dental problems. If already have or are at risk for gum disease (i.e. periodontal disease), we may ask that you come see us more often for deep cleanings to keep things from getting worse. Children’s needs change quickly as they develop, so seeing us regularly is especially important to ensure they grow up with a healthy smile. And just because you’re all grown up doesn’t mean you don’t need preventive care: adults & seniors need to see us every six months too!
Preventive care isn’t only about preventing tooth decay or gum disease. We can also screen your for oral cancer, detect bite problems like tooth grinding, or even detect signs in your mouth that may indicate problems with your overall health.
Of course, proper care of your teeth at home is also vital to preventive dentistry, so patient education is always part of your visit. Need advice on the best way to brush & floss your teeth? Feel free to ask the dentist or the hygienist for tips & advice.
We believe in preventing dental problems before they become costly, painful, or both. When problems do arise, our skilled team is there to provide you with solutions. Our dentists have extensive experience working with children, teens, adults & seniors, so we can make the dental experience better for everyone.
