Preventive Dental Services in Jackson MS

Preventive Dentistry in Jackson MS

While we can provide treatments for dental problems it would be best if you do not have to worry about having those issues in the first place. That’s where preventive dentistry comes in.

Our Preventive Dentistry Services Include:

We can provide a complete set of preventive dentistry services. Here are some of those:

  • Prophylaxis– You need an annual dental cleaning. During this procedure, plaque will be removed from the surface of your teeth. This is very important to clean the spaces where you cannot usually reach when brushing.
  • Sealants– The chewing surfaces of the back teeth are marked by grooves and it is on those grooves where tooth decay normally begins. We can apply sealant to these grooves to prevent bacteria from building up there and causing tooth decay.
  • Fluoride Treatments– Fluoride can help keep your teeth strong and we can recommend some supplements that you can use.
  • Periodontal Maintenance– Periodontal maintenances refers to the practice of keeping the area around the teeth clean and free from bacteria, build-up and other microorganisms. It deals mostly with the gums which can be very sensitive. Gum disease can lead to tooth loss and even more serious health issues.
  • Night Guard Therapy– TMD, migraines and other health issues are all different health issues but there is a common culprit that causes them. That is the trigeminal nerve system. When this nerve malfunctions it can lead to several problems like TMD. The best way to treat a problem with this nerve is through night guard therapy, which calls for a device being placed in your mouth.

Although we can provide you with a whole host of tools to prevent dental issues occurring please keep in mind that the bulk of preventive dentistry is not done in our clinic, but in the home. You need to take your part in preventing dental issues from developing.
