At Premier Smiles, we provide different dental services, from you preventive dentistry to dental cleanings. Preventive dentistry involves a series of measures taken to prevent dental diseases of any kind. This means a common effort from both dentist and patient, in order to preserve the natural dentition.
Some of the best methods of preventing any dental diseases are a good oral hygiene and a balanced diet. The prevention is continued in the dental office, where Dr. Catalin Florin Arhiri and our dental team maintain and improve your oral health.
Regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays are also parts of prevention. At the same time, sealants and fluoride help prevent cavities and tooth decay.
By paying attention to preventive dentistry, you can avoid severe and costly dental problems and you can mantain a healthy and beautiful smile.
At your first dental visit, you will get a complete dental examination. A regular dental check-up exam can include the following:
Professional dental cleanings (dental prophylaxis) are treatments performed by registered dental hygienists. They will include a dental exam and the following procedures:
Dental radiographs (X-rays) are important diagnostic tools and provide the dentist information about any dental problems, irregularities or hidden abnormalities. After the X-rays are taken, the dentist can develop a complete dental treatment plan.
It′s important to know that detecting and treating your dental problems as soon as possible will help you save money, time and maintain a healthy smile.
Dental X-rays require low levels of radiation and are considered safe diagnostic procedures. The amount of radiation exposure from a X-ray is the equivalent to the amount of radiation a person is exposed from natural sources in single day.
Furthermore, dentists take all the necessary measures to reduce the patient’s exposure to radiation during dental X-rays. They use lead apron shields as a form of radiation protection for the body and fast films in order to shorten the exposure time of X-rays.
