Preventive Dentistry

Cleanings, Exams, X-rays, & Photos

While good oral hygiene begins at home, it’s essential to schedule preventive dental care as well. A custom schedule is developed based on a thorough evaluation. Preventive care helps ensure the teeth, gums, jawbone, dental work, muscles, jaw joints, and soft tissue are in good condition and helps identify any oral health issues. If you’re ready to get the preventive care needed for a healthier smile, schedule an appointment with Red Bank Smiles today.

Our Preventive Care Services

When you visit Red Bank Smiles for a preventive visit, we’ll conduct a thorough exam to assess your oral health. During your appointment, you can expect the following:

  • X-rays and photos: Captured in a number of positions both inside and outside the mouth, these images can reveal what might not be visible during a visual inspection.
  • Physical exam: The teeth, gums, jaw joint, supporting muscles and soft tissue will be inspected.
  • Oral cancer screening: You will be checked for bumps, sores, red or white patches and other abnormalities.
  • Sleep apnea screening: There are common symptoms of this condition, such as worn teeth from grinding, cavities and irritated gums.
  • Cleaning: A scaler will be used to scrape away buildup before an electric brush and gritty paste polish the teeth.

After your teeth and mouth have been examined, we’ll explain any findings and work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that fits your financial needs and prioritizes the most conservative methods possible to maintain or restore good oral health.

Preventive Dental Care for Kids

Many of the same steps are involved in children’s preventive care as well, although in general fewer X-rays will be required. Children should receive their first preventive dental care by their first birthday or at the eruption of their first tooth. The team at Red Bank Smiles will do everything we can to make your child’s exam a positive, fun experience.
