The Importance of Preventive Dental Care

Preventative dental care helps patients avoid the development of complex oral health concerns. Two of the most common preventive dental care issues we treat include gum disease and tooth decay.

Gum Disease

About 75% of the adult population experience some stage of gum disease. If teeth are not cared for, plaque will build up and cause harm to the gums. Without proper treatment, you are are risk for tooth loss, bone loss, and receding gums. This condition is highly preventable with routine visits to the dentist.

Dr. Rafat is a periodontist that specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of gum disease. He provides a full range of treatment options depending on the needs and condition of the patient. We offer several types of gum disease treatments that will help you regain your oral health.

Tooth Decay

Dental cavities are a major concern for children’s oral health, but adults can be affected as well. Cavity prevention begins with an exam, dental cleaning, and screening. Valley Dental Health uses advanced technology such as digital x-rays, an intraoral camera, and computer software to aid in the early detection of cavities and tooth decay.

Our dentists may also suggest the use of dental sealants to prevent cavities. Teeth that have already been affected by tooth decay can be treated through a range of procedures including dental fillings, dental crowns, or root canal therapy.
