Preventative Dentistry

Everyone is going to have teeth problems at some point in their life. However, you can diminish the extent of those problems with preventative dentistry. We do preventative dentistry to help prevent dental issues such as infection, disease, and any pain from misaligned teeth. Dental hygiene is vital to give you the smile you want and the confidence you need. Good dental hygiene will provide you with a healthy smile that will last you over the years, and here at Aspen Dental, there is nothing more that we want for you. Our hygienists are expertly trained in caring for your teeth and give you a great dental experience. Our team has never been more ready to serve you and your family. If you are in Denver, Colorado, come see us today! 

What to Expect

During your regular appointment at the dentist, you can expect us to take x-rays and oral evaluations, followed by a deep cleaning of all of your teeth. The cleaning includes the removal of plaque, polishing, and flossing. The dentist will check for any cavities, gum disease, decay and make sure nothing is out of place or causing you pain in your mouth. Other services may include the application of fluoride, sealants, spacers for kids, and instruction for better brushing and flossing. Each time you come into our dental office, we will give you personalized tips on how to improve your oral hygiene and keep your mouth clean. More lengthy procedures and oral surgeries like root canals and fillings are not considered preventative dentistry. We do our part to make sure you have the best experience in our office and walk away with a healthy smile. With the most qualified team in Cherry Creek, Aspen Dental has all of this to offer and so much more. 

Sealants

Sealants are a great way to prevent cavities, especially for kids. We recommend sealants to many kids, but anyone can get them. They act as a cover for your teeth and prevent any food or bacteria from getting into the pits and fissures of your teeth and creating a cavity. Sealants are great for kids because they help keep their teeth healthy while developing good oral hygiene habits. 

Fluoride

Fluoride is important for your teeth’s strength. It is a natural, white sticky substance that we paint onto the surface of your teeth. It strengthens the enamel of your teeth and helps them stay strong over time. It is one of the best ways to avoid cavities. We highly recommend a fluoride treatment, as well as using fluoride-based toothpaste. 

Preventative dentistry should become a regular habit in your life. It is one of the best ways to ensure good oral health. But oral health isn’t just about brushing and flossing. It also comes down to other habits, such as eating good foods and not using your teeth to open any packaging. The best thing you can do is stay on top of your bi-annual check-ups. This is when we can clean your teeth, but we can also watch for any oral issues. The sooner we find those issues, the better your treatment will be.
