Preventative Dentistry in Saskatoon
Dental issues like cavities, gum disease and enamel wear are prevalent among people of all ages. However, proper oral hygiene practices, professional dental cleanings and regular dental check-ups can prevent or reverse most of these issues.
At Willowgreen Dental, we’re committed to promoting preventative dentistry in Saskatoon. Our ultimate goal is to help families in our community maintain healthy smiles and avoid unnecessary dental issues.
Our team of highly trained dental professionals is dedicated to providing comprehensive oral health care that focuses on prevention first. We also use digital scanners and dental X-rays to detect any issues early on so we can address them before they become larger problems.
Our Preventative Dentistry Services
We believe that a proactive approach leads to better dental health and contributes to your overall well-being.
We provide the following preventative dentistry procedures:
Regular dental check-ups involve thoroughly examining your teeth, gums and mouth. This allows us to identify potential dental diseases early on and provide timely treatment before they worsen.
Some of the most common oral health issues we screen for include cavities, gum disease, oral cancer and signs of teeth grinding or clenching. If we detect any problems, we’ll discuss treatment options with you and create a personalized plan to address them.
Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer is a serious and potentially fatal disease that can affect anyone, regardless of age or lifestyle. At our practice, we perform routine oral cancer screenings as part of our preventative dentistry services to catch any signs of the disease early on.
If we see any suspicious lesions or growths in the mouth, we may recommend further examination or a biopsy to determine the cause and appropriate course of treatment.
If you or a family member participate in sports, a custom-made mouthguard can protect your or their teeth and jaws from potential injuries. Our team can provide a comfortable and effective mouthguard that fits your unique oral structure.
Fluoride is a mineral that helps strengthen teeth and prevent tooth decay. We offer fluoride treatments for children and adults to help protect against cavities and maintain healthy enamel.
Benefits of fluoride treatments include:
- Protection against tooth decay and cavities
- Reversal of early stages of enamel damage
- Increased resistance to acid attacks from bacteria in the mouth
Dental sealants are thin coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of molars to prevent food and bacteria from getting trapped in the crevices, which can lead to cavities. This is a simple and effective preventative measure for children and adults.
Dental sealants are a great option for those with deep grooves or pits on their molars, making them more susceptible to cavities. The sealant acts as a protective barrier, keeping food and bacteria from getting stuck in these hard-to-reach areas. This can significantly reduce the risk of developing cavities and promote better oral health overall.
