What is Preventive Dentistry

The Foundation of Oral Health

In all aspects of your health, prevention is key, and this is especially true when it comes to preventive dentistry in Houston. From exams and cleanings to fluoride treatments, dental sealants, and much more, Dr. Poreddy can help patients of all ages achieve the healthy smile they need to thrive with preventative dental care.

The Benefits of Preventive Dentistry

Maintain Your Oral Health

When you regularly visit your dentist, problems like tooth decay and gum disease can be detected early on with preventative dental care, and treated before they become more serious issues. This saves you from experiencing pain, discomfort, and the need for more extensive, invasive, and costly treatments down the line. The best way to achieve this is with a dental cleaning.

Keep Your Teeth Looking Great

Regular teeth cleanings can remove plaque and tartar buildup, as well as minor surface stains, allowing your smile to shine bright. By keeping your teeth clean and healthy, you can minimize discoloration and keep your confidence up.

Improve Your Overall Health

Your oral health is systemically linked to your overall well-being. In fact, poor oral health has been linked to a variety of health issues, including heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. By keeping up with preventive dental care, you’re keeping up with your whole-body health. We achieve this through oral cancer screening and teeth cleaning.

Fluoride Treatments

Quick, simple, and non-invasive professional fluoride treatments can help remineralize your enamel, boosting your defenses against cavities and decay.

Dental Sealants

By applying a thin layer of a special resin over your rear teeth, dental sealants form a barrier between your teeth and the bacteria and food particles they feed on to lower the risk of developing decay.

Soft-Tissue Laser Therapy

Periodontal Treatment

Cold Sore Therapy

With our soft-tissue laser, we can target specific tissues to precisely treat oral health issues like periodontal disease and cold or canker sores. Laser therapy is less invasive than traditional methods, resulting in faster, more comfortable procedures and shorter recovery times.

Periodontal Care

Patients with periodontal (gum) disease require a bit of special care. Extra cleanings that go below the gum line can help keep gum disease under control and preserve your oral health, so you can keep smiling.

Oral Cancer Screenings

While relatively rare, oral cancer can pose a serious risk to your health and even your life. During your exam, Dr. Poreddy will keep an eye out for abnormalities or discolorations. If she sees anything concerning, she may recommend taking a biopsy for further analysis.

TMJ/TMD Treatment

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders can cause pain and difficulty in jaw movement, but Dr. Poreddy can offer treatments such as oral appliances and physical therapy to alleviate symptoms and improve your quality of life.
