Preventive Dentistry in Houston, Texas
The Importance of Preventive Dentistry
At Champions Dental, preventive care is an essential part of our practice. Along with providing multiple preventive care services, we make it our goal to educate our patients on proper oral hygiene practices.
Our Preventive Care Services
Oral Cancer Screening
During your routine check-ups with our Champions Dental team, your oral health will be closely examined. Because suspicious changes could be indicative of larger problems, regular visits can help us monitor your oral health, check-in with you regarding your habits and oral hygiene, and help us treat problems early.
Fluoride treatments are one of the most popular and simple forms of preventive care and are beneficial when it comes to the protection and repair of your teeth. Taking the form of a foam, gel, varnish, or rinse, fluoride is a natural mineral that can strengthen and repair your teeth, essentially preventing cavities and increasing your overall oral health. During treatment, fluoride is applied directly to the surface of your teeth, building an extra, repairing layer of protection.
Focus on Periodontal Health and Gum Disease Prevention
Night Guards and Mouthguards
Protection of your teeth is fundamental to maintaining a beautiful, healthy smile. If you suffer from bruxism (teeth grinding) or participate in a high-intensity sport, further intervention may be necessary to protect the integrity of your teeth. Among the preventive dental services we offer are fitting for mouthguards and night guards.
Placement of a dental sealant is another popular procedure offered at Champions Dental. A sealant works as a protective coating for your teeth and is typically painted onto the back teeth with the purpose of preventing cavities and tooth decay.
Routine Teeth Cleaning and Polishing
Scheduling a routine, preventive care cleaning every six months allows us to treat build-up and address issues that may become more difficult to resolve as time passes. During a routine cleaning, we’ll polish your pearly whites and provide information about proper at-home care.
