Protect Oral Health with Preventive Dentistry in Lincoln Park
Before restorative or cosmetic dentistry is needed, our team at Comprehensive Dental will protect your smile’s health and happiness with preventive care. These services are designed to catch dental problems at their earliest stages and provide valuable support in warding off future concerns, such as nightguards to prevent damage caused by bruxism (teeth grinding/clenching) and oral cancer screenings to locate worrisome symptoms. Dr. Samir Rana and his excellent team of doctors and staff members take time to treat you and your loved ones with the quality attention and personalized approach you deserve. Contact our Lincoln Park, NJ location today to schedule an appointment!
Our available preventive services include:
Check-ups & Cleanings
Patients of all ages from Montville, NJ and surrounding areas need to be attending routine check-ups and cleanings every six months. During this visit, one of our doctors will carefully inspect teeth, gums, bite, and other areas to ensure your health. If any problems are encountered, we will advise you on how to handle the situation.
A routine visit will include an evaluation of your oral hygiene and a deep cleaning of teeth. One of our dental hygienists will scrape away hardened plaque that accumulates at the gum line, ensure that your teeth are healthy, inspect your mouth for signs of disease, and polish teeth. You may receive a fluoride treatment, which protects your teeth from surface stains.
Brushing and flossing every day at home is the best way to keep your teeth and mouth healthy. Using fluoride toothpaste can keep your enamel and gum line healthy by cleaning away harmful plaque and bacteria that accumulate throughout the day. Plus, seeing our team frequently will ensure that your mouth is healthy and you are not at risk for more serious diseases like gingivitis and oral cancer.
Family & Pediatric Care
We love seeing patients of all ages at Comprehensive Dental! Our team offers family and pediatric care so you and your loved ones receive caring, individualized treatment at one convenient location. Our doctors and staff members have experience with younger and older patients alike, and we look forward to giving everyone new reasons to smile.
Dental sealants are often the perfect preventive option for younger patients who are still learning to properly brush and floss their teeth, as well as adults with teeth that are overly susceptible to tooth decay. This tough plastic material works as a shield covering the deep chewing grooves on back molars so food particles and damaging bacteria can’t accumulate there.
Dental-related anxiety and fear are common problems for countless patients. Our team sympathizes, but we also don’t want you to put off necessary dental care because of these negative emotions. That’s why we provide sedation dentistry as an effective method that can soothe patients and help them feel genuinely relaxed as we improve their smile’s health and beauty.
