Preventative Care Q & A

What is preventive care?

Preventive care is the branch of dentistry and oral health care that emphasizes good oral hygiene habits. By brushing and flossing regularly and maintaining regular visits to Sethi Dental and the team for checkups and screenings, you vastly reduce your risk of developing common dental problems, including:

  • Decay
  • Cavities
  • Gingivitis
  • Periodontal disease
  • Tooth loss

The team not only helps you develop proper brushing and flossing techniques that serve you well at home, but they also offer in-office preventive care services.

What type of preventive care services are offered?

Some of the essential preventive care services offered at Sethi Dental include:


Professional cleanings with special dental instruments help eliminate plaque you miss with brushing and flossing at home. Annual cleanings are a vital part of preventive care and dentistry.

Diet analysis

Assessing your diet with an experienced dentist can help identify problem areas, such as excess sugar that can threaten the health of your teeth and gums.

Fluoride treatments

Fluoride is a natural mineral that helps keep your teeth strong and prevents cavities. By regularly wearing a tray lined with fluoride for a few minutes, you can fortify your tooth enamel and prevent decay.


Sealants are thin coatings that your dentist applies on the surfaces of your teeth to help prevent cavities. They are long-lasting and have helped combat decay for many years.

Preventive dentistry varies from patient to patient based on age, medical history, and dental history.

Why is preventative care important?

Preventive care is integral to oral health care because it helps you avoid serious problems that can drain you of time and money. It would be best if you underwent dental procedures to restore your smile when you experience decay, periodontal disease, or tooth loss. 

Taking good care of your teeth is essential to prevent dental problems. The team at Sethi Dental is here to help with that.

Also, preventive care helps you maintain good oral health over time. Your risk of serious health conditions, including heart disease and stroke, increases when oral health declines.
