About Preventive Dental Care

To manage good health for your body, you eat right and exercise regularly. For your dental health, preventive dental care is part of maintaining a good oral hygiene routine. Preventive dentistry includes brushing and flossing at home and regularly scheduled professional teeth cleanings, sealants, full-mouth debridement, scaling for gingivitis, and other preventive measures. At City of Oaks Dental, Dr. Vivian Throop can help prevent tooth decay or gum disease and brighten your smile. Reach out to our Raleigh, NC office and schedule a consultation.

How Does Preventive Dental Care Work?

Dental cleanings involve more than just cleaning. Dr. Throop and her team of hygienists will ensure your smile and teeth are healthy and find any dental problems while they are minor. Our hygienists are highly skilled at removing unsightly stains and buildup below the gumline to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy. Teeth cleaning involves an hour of thorough and complete care. Special polishing techniques are also available to make your smile dazzling. We also spend extra time with you to review home care techniques available to you and answer all your questions.

Annual dental exams are also part of preventive dental care. We use the most advanced technology, such as 3D imaging and digital x-rays, to identify tooth decay or other dental concerns. Your preventive dental care appointment is a great time to talk to your dentist or hygienist about any teeth that have been bothering you or any cosmetic improvements you may be considering.

Clean and Polished Teeth

To get your healthiest smile, preventive dentistry is the best care to promote healthy oral hygiene. With regular dental cleanings at least twice a year, our professional hygienists can remove plaque and tartar that have built up over time and we can catch early signs of natural tooth decay. Schedule a preventive care visit at our Raleigh, NC office today so we can get your teeth whiter, brighter, and healthier.

My family and I have received excellent care from Dr. Troop and her very competent team since she first took over the practice from our old dentist, Dr. Makely. Both my husband and I have experienced dental issues after-hours, and Dr. Thrips always responded quickly and with concern. We both highly recommend City of Oaks Dental.
