Preventative Care

We would love for you to contact us and let us help you get your smile back.

A Great Smile is a Healthier You!

Routine Cleanings

A routine dental cleaning is necessary for deep cleaning of plaque and build up that is not reachable with a toothbrush. During a routine cleaning our team is able to examine parts of your mouth for small problems that could possibly grow if not checked regularly. In many cases, if a problem is caught early it can be treated or cured.

Brushing and flossing regularly is just the start, but sometimes people experience difficulty holding floss or a toothbrush, which makes home care more difficult.  Let us help you navigate oral home care products to find what works best for you!

Preventative Dental Care and Hygiene

Preventative dentistry and dental hygiene are essential in maintaining overall oral health. The most common dental problems related to hygiene are cavities, gingivitis, and plaque buildup. Standard preventive dentistry services include regular brushing and flossing, dental checkups, and tips for better oral health practices. Learn more about preventive dentistry and dental hygiene and how these services from the Dental Implant Aesthetic can help you keep your smile healthy for years after restorative dentistry in Memphis, TN. 


Why Are Preventive Dentistry and Dental Hygiene Important? 

Keeping up with your oral health is an essential part of overall health. Preventive dentistry focuses on preventing, diagnosing, and treating conditions and diseases that affect the teeth, gums, and other parts of the mouth. Regular care is as vital for your full-arch dental implants as it is for natural teeth. 

Good oral hygiene habits like brushing and flossing, dental checkups, and cleanings are essential to preventing gum disease and tooth decay. Regular checkups can help identify problems early on, leading to more effective treatment and less expensive procedures in the long run. It also keeps your dental implants looking their best and helps to keep your smile healthy. 


What Are the Most Common Dental Problems Related to Hygiene? 

The most common dental problems related to hygiene include cavities, gingivitis, and plaque buildup. Cavities, or tooth decay, occur when acids erode your teeth enamel, the outer layer. Plaque is a sticky film that forms on teeth and contains bacteria that can create toxins that cause damage to your gum tissue. Gingivitis is inflammation of the gums caused by plaque buildup between teeth and along the gum line. 


What Are Common Preventive Dentistry Services? 

During your preventative dental visit, a dentist will check for cavities and perform X-rays to view the areas between teeth. They may also perform a cleaning where they remove plaque and tartar from your teeth. Cleaning also involves a polish to remove surface stains from your teeth. The dentist may also suggest a fluoride treatment, which is topical and reinforces the enamel of your teeth, strengthening them and making them more resistant to decay.

A hygienist may also review your oral hygiene habits and provide tips on how to better care for your teeth. These tips can include brushing and flossing, using mouthwash, limiting sugary foods, and avoiding tobacco use. 

Regular preventive dentistry services allow you to maintain your dental implants in Memphis and ensure they last a lifetime.

When I lost my tooth, I didn’t want to show my smile. Dr. Felton explained the implant process in a way that I could really understand and I was confident that I had come to the right place.  She placed my implant and my new tooth gave me back the confidence to smile again.

We’ve been going to Dr. Schulter for at least 30 years. I’ve had a broad range of services completed at the Dental Implant Aesthetic Center, from cleanings, to crowns, and dental implants.
