Preventive Dentistry

Oral Hygiene Care & Tooth Decay

At Chu’s Dental Care, we believe that prevention is better than treatment, and this is why we advise to be seen for regular examinations, so we can spot any problems early.  Prevention starts at home with daily oral hygiene, and your dentist will give you tailored oral hygiene advice required to ensure you are able to complete this task. A great way to reduce tooth decay is to limit the amount of sugar you eat, as well as the amount of times your eat throughout the day.

At your dental exam, we may offer scaling and polishing to remove any calculus that causes the early, reversible stages of gum disease, and screening x-rays of teeth to look inside fillings and between teeth to pick up any early cavities before they cause you any discomfort.
