Healthy Smiles for Life!

Preventive dentistry is the best way to avoid painful, expensive dental procedures as it stresses at-home dental care that will help prevent decay or disease. Preventive, or at-home, dental care is important because it results in healthy teeth and gums throughout one’s life.

Toothbrushes For All!

Are You Brushing Correctly?

Place the toothbrush at the gum line at a 45 degree angle to cover the tooth surface and the gum line. Move the brush back and forth and in circles, gently brushing away any plaque and food debris from the surfaces of the teeth and the gum line. Patients should be sure to brush the insides and outsides of all teeth, including the hard to reach back teeth.

Services to Help You Avoid Decay and Periodontal Disease in Fairfield, CT

Professional Cleanings

Plaque naturally builds up on your teeth and accumulates harmful bacteria, but these toxins are usually cleared away with a proper oral hygiene routine. When you neglect to brush and floss, however, the bacteria can produce acid that causes decay or it can infect the gum tissue, resulting in periodontal disease.

Professional cleanings are a supplement to your home oral hygiene routine that can clear away the bacteria, plaque, and tartar before any damage occurs. Periodontal exams will also be performed to identify any areas of concern before gum disease can progress and cause damage to bone and supporting structures. A thorough examination of your teeth along with periodic x-rays assist our experts in catching cavities and other areas of damage early on and in recommending the necessary treatment to prevent further progression.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Demartin Dental Associates recommends an annual cancer screening, at minimum, performed during your regular checkup. Early detection and treatment of illness is the key to maintaining your health.

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride is a mineral that is present in drinking water, in most locales, and added into toothpastes and mouthwashes which are used in your daily oral hygiene routine. Fluoride has the ability to strengthen your teeth and increase their resistance to decay, and may be applied as a treatment in our office.

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are safe coating material that is applied onto the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. The clear plastic liquid fills the grooves and pits and then hardens into a protective layer, helping to prevent decay.

Maintaining your oral hygiene is not only important for your mouth, but for your overall health as well. To schedule your preventive cleaning and checkup appointment in Fairfield, CT, contact Demartin Dental Associates today.
