Preventive Dentistry Services
Please take a moment to review the pillars of preventive dentistry at our Windsor practice:
Essential to preventing gingivitis and decay, professional cleanings effectively remove plaque from the teeth and gum line. Pair this with a good oral hygiene routine as discussed below!
Dr. Lipman can detect any number of dental health issues early on by performing an oral exam. We want to treat your smile, if needed, as soon as possible to keep your oral health in the healthiest condition. Gingivitis, abnormal bone growth, and impacted or infected teeth, along with more obvious problems like cavities and weakened teeth, could mean that a cosmetic, general, or restorative dentistry procedure is necessary.
Fluoride helps protect against tooth decay. It is especially important for children, as their teeth are still in the process of forming. Family Dentistry of Windsor offers fluoride treatment to help reduce the risk of tooth decay and tooth sensitivity in adults as well.
Oral Cancer Screening
Timely treatment is imperative to full recovery from oral cancer. That’s why Dr. Lipman takes care to detect it early on with preventive dentistry measures. In Windsor, our practice offers sophisticated oral cancer screening technology.
Oral Hygiene Routine
The way you care for your smile at home is essential to your oral health. If you practice brushing and flossing your teeth at least twice a day, you are going a long way in caring for your teeth and gums and preventing serious oral health problems.
Sealants may be applied to teeth, such as the back molars, that are notably at risk of developing a cavity. Made of a thin, plastic coating, sealants basically serve as cavity protection.
By staying up to date on your checkup treatments, including oral exams, cleanings, oral cancer screenings, fluoride treatment, and sealants, in addition to staying true to an excellent oral hygiene routine, you and your family can be in excellent dental health for years to come.
