Keeping your teeth and gums healthy will prevent dental problems in the future. Dr. Trujillo recommends practicing good home care, and regular check-ups and cleanings.
General & Preventive Dentistry in Phoenix
In addition to offering cutting-edge periodontal care, Dr. Trujillo and his team are also proud to offer general and preventive dentistry services to keep your teeth clean, healthy, and beautiful. Regular cleanings and checkups are vital for everyone, but especially for individuals who are dealing with periodontal disease or have dealt with gum disease in the past. Preventive dentistry is the best way to avoid pain, tooth loss, gum recession, bone loss, and a myriad of other issues tied to poor dental hygiene.
Preventive Dental Care Services
It’s never too late to take control of your dental health, which is why Dr. Trujillo offers a wide variety of preventive dental care services. Preventive care can help you with more than your smile. Because serious systemic diseases like diabetes, heart disease, and even cancer have been tied to periodontal disease, preventive dental care could help you to avoid life-changing medical emergencies. Here are just a few of the great preventive dental care services offered by the Arizona Periodontal Group.
Dental Cleanings and Exams
The American Dental Association recommends meeting with your dentist or periodontist at regular intervals for a dental cleaning and exam. Although most patients can get by visiting with Dr. Trujillo twice a year or so, people who have a tendency to develop dental problems or gum disease may need more frequent deep cleanings to keep their teeth healthy. We'll let you know if this applies to you.
Dental sealants aren’t just for children. These powerful, invisible plastic coatings can smooth out rough chewing surfaces, making your teeth easier to brush and helping you to prevent cavities in your molars.
Oral Cancer Screening
Over 120 diseases show symptoms in the mouth, which is one of the reasons scheduling regular appointments with a periodontist in Phoenix is so important. During your appointment, Dr. Trujillo will keep an eye out for the symptoms of oral cancer and many other serious systemic diseases so that you can seek treatment early.
