Accra Preventive Dentistry
Stop oral health problems before they start.
Bethel Dental Clinic in Accra, Ghana sees preventing oral health issues as one of our main goals. That’s why we offer preventive dentistry services to keep dental decay, cavities, gum disease, and tooth infection at bay. We accomplish this by providing you with regular dental checkups and exams, dental sealants and fluoride treatments, periodontal therapy, and nightguards for teeth grinding. These preventive dentistry services work together to keep your smile feeling and functioning well.
Dental Checkups and Cleaning
The cornerstone of preventive dentistry are the twice-yearly dental checkups and hygiene visits. During your checkups and hygiene visits, we’ll inspect your teeth and gums thoroughly for any signs of damage, decay, or disease. We will use our intraoral cameras and digital X-ray technology to get a good look at your oral structures and give you a chance to see what’s going on with your oral health as well. We will thoroughly explain any findings and discuss treatment options if we find cavities, gum disease, or other problems. Once we’ve performed the dental exam, we’ll clean your teeth, removing all the plaque and tartar that you might have missed when brushing and flossing.
Dental Sealants and Fluoride Supplements
Dental sealants and fluoride supplements are two preventive dentistry treatments that help you better avoid cavities. These are especially important for children, who haven’t yet gotten the hang of correct brushing and flossing routines. Dental sealants are plastic that covers the tops of molars to keep debris from getting into the crevices on the top of the tooth, and fluoride is a mineral that has been shown to strengthen tooth enamel.
Because gum disease poses such a threat to your oral and overall health if it takes hold, we offer periodontal therapy for gum disease treatment as well.
