At Cabezon Dental, we emphasize the importance of prevention and early intervention when it comes to your dental health. Our highly trained dentist recommends visiting our Rio Rancho dental office twice a year for professional teeth cleanings, examinations and oral cancer screenings. By keeping up with preventive checkups, you are taking important steps towards achieving a lifetime of excellent oral health.
Preventive care begins at home with brushing, flossing and limiting your intake of sugary foods and beverages. With an effective home-care routine you can help protect your teeth against the detrimental effects of plaque, which is a sticky film that gathers continuously in your mouth, harboring the bacteria responsible for tooth decay and gum disease. To complement your daily routine, it is also important to visit our Rio Rancho dental office for biannual checkups professional teeth cleanings. In this way we can examine your smile to assess your oral health as well as remove any plaque buildup, tartar and debris from the most difficult to reach areas between the teeth and gums. A teeth cleaning also gives us the opportunity to review your oral hygiene habits and guide you as to how you can brush and floss more effectively between visits. For our pediatric patients, education is an especially important preventive tool. We also provide our youngest patients with dental sealants and fluoride treatments, for an added layer of protection against cavities. For patients of all ages, our dentist will thoroughly examine the teeth, gums and their supporting bone structure, with the use of advanced digital radiography, as needed. With periodic examinations, we can diagnose conditions that may adversely affect your oral health from their outset, when they are easiest to treat.
