Woman brushing her teethPreventive dentistry plays a vital part in your family’s oral health. Professional cleanings, fluoride treatments, and dental sealants all help to ensure you and your family a lifetime of beautiful, healthy smiles. Dr. Michael Bleyzer in Pomona, Rockland County and Stony Point, NY wants to share his knowledge of why preventive dentistry is important to you.

If you are following a regular program of thorough brushing and flossing, good for you! What you do at home is an integral part of keeping your smile looking great and staying healthy. The only problem is brushing and flossing only remove the soft deposits, called plaque, which accumulate on your teeth. Hard deposits, known as calculus or tartar, provide a place for plaque and bacteria to attach and thrive, creating disease. These hard deposits have to be taken off by a professional. That’s where preventive dental cleanings come in.

Your dental professional will use high-tech tools and skills to remove all hard and soft deposits and stains on your teeth. Your smile will look great and feel great too! During the professional cleaning appointment, you and your family members will also benefit from oral hygiene instruction on brushing, flossing and taking care of your oral health.

After a professional cleaning, fluoride is applied. Fluoride is a critical part of preventing tooth decay, because it works on a molecular level to actually strengthen your tooth enamel. If you have infants or small children in your family, Dr. Bleyzer may prescribe fluoride for them in drops or tablet form if you live in an area without fluoridated water.

For older children and teens, dental sealants are an important procedure to include in a preventive program. Dental sealants are a non-invasive, pain-free way to guard against tooth decay by covering up deep grooves and crevices where decay can start. The recommendation is for first permanent molars to be sealed when your child is between the ages of 5 and 7, and second permanent molars be sealed when your child is between the ages of 11 and 14.

Preventive dentistry provides a strong foundation for continuing dental health. For more information about preventive dentistry and how it can help you and your family call Dr. Bleyzer in Pomona, NY.
