what is Preventive Dental Care?
Preserving your dental Health is our motto
Preventive care is the foundation of good dental health. This is why we recommend a regular dental visit every 6 months. The main purpose of the dental check up/cleaning appointment is to remove plaque, tartar and surface stains from the teeth. Flossing and tooth-polishing are also part of the routine cleanings, as is instruction on proper brushing and flossing from the dental hygienist.
During the regular dental visit, we also conduct a thorough examination of your gums and other areas of your mouth. We will explain your current dental health status as well as your treatment options. Prevention of gum disease ,tooth decay and other problems is an integral part of good dental health. Educating patients about maintaining dental health at home is an important part of our mission.
Preventive measures can do wonders for your dental health. A few simple homecare practices, paired with regular visits to yours Dr Ali’s Denta Care center will go a long way towards maintaining optimal oral health.
Inadequate plaque control is the primary cause of gingivitis (inflamed gums), periodontitis (bacteria gum disease), and oral malodor (bad breath). Patients can minimize bacterial accumulation through regular brushing, flossing, and tongue scraping, and periodic dental hygiene appointments (dental prophylaxis).
Why Regular Dental Appointment?
Professional cleanings and assessments enable dental professionals to get the insight of your oral health status and they can provide guidance on steps to take to maintain healthy teeth and gums. Regular preventive dental visits to Dr Ali’s Denta Care allows problems to be identified early while they can be fixed easily and painlessly.

Professional Fluoride Therapy
Fluoride therapy has been proven beneficial in maintaining optimal oral health, particularly in the prevention of tooth decay and hypersensitivity can often times improve dental health. Treatment options vary according to a patient’s susceptibility to decay, level of tooth sensitivity, periodontal (gum) condition and number of cosmetic restorations.
Like fluoride, dental sealants can give today’s children a head start on good oral health. A dental sealant is a clear acrylic material that is applied directly to cavity-prone chewing surfaces and grooves of the back teeth, providing protection against decay.
Dr Ali’s Denta Care knows the importance of creating and maintaining good dental health habits. Your oral health is directly linked to your overall health. Regular visits to our center combined with fluoride therapy, dental sealants and at-home dental hygiene routines all contribute to your dental health.
