J&J Dental Care is committed to improve your health. Our main emphasis is on prevention. Preventing disease is less costly and more rewarding than correcting problems once they occur. Total patient care is our treatment goal.
Preventive dentistry is a branch of dentistry science concerned with the prevention of diseases of the mouth,teeth and adjacent tissues. It includes at home dental care performed by patients, as well as dental care and education by your dentist. It begins with the first tooth. Daily cleaning of the teeth should begin as soon as the first tooth erupts. Early dental visits are the foundation for a good oral health. The earlier the dental visit, the better the chance of preventing dental disease.
If you have red - swollen - tender gum, bleed when brushing, bad breath, loose teeth, may indicate the presence of inflammation in your gum. Once inflammation due to plaque and calculus build up at underneath the gumline has begun destroy the supporting gum and bones around teeth, brushing or flossing will not be enough to stop the inflammation. You need your dentist to help to remove it. The process for removing calculus is called scalling, known as conventional therapy to eliminate dental plaque and calculus which cause inflammation, thus helping to establish a periodontium health. Removal of stain will be effective using air flow system.
Sealants are dental treatment for the intended purpose of preventing cavities by applying a glass ionomer material to one or more teeth usually newly formed permanent teeth. In fact, children should have their teeth evaluated for sealants soon after they erupt. Sealants painted over pits and fissures in the chewing surfaces of back teeth to block food from being trapped. It is a painless treatment. Sealants will be checked every 6 months by your dentist and sealants easy to replaced or repaired if necessery.
Flouride helps prevent teeth cavities by making teeth more resistant to acid produced from plaque, because flouride can reduces bacteria level. We can get flouride from our toothpaste and mouth rinse. If there is not enough flouride, your dentist can also apply flouride topical to the teeth as a gel or foam. Flouride topical contain a higher level of flouride than in toothpaste or mouth rinse. Children under 6 years need to be supervise by an adult because they more likely swallow toothpaste after brushing.
