Preventive Dentistry

At Encompass Dental Studios, we believe in stopping tooth decay before it starts. Our dentist can not only treat you at your next exam but also make suggestions on how to maintain your oral health outside the office. Talk to Dr. Susan Alexander about things you can do to keep your teeth healthy and strong between dental visits. Call us at 402-563-4565 to learn more about preventive dentistry in Columbus, Nebraska!

Preventive dentistry encompasses all forms of dental care that are provided to help you avoid developing tooth decay and gum disease, sustaining tooth damage, or developing other dental problems. Preventive treatments are designed to help keep your mouth healthy so that you can maintain your natural teeth and avoid the need for more extensive care. The more care you take in keeping your mouth, teeth, gums and supporting oral structures healthy, the greater your chances are for maintaining your natural teeth throughout your life.

Preventive dentistry helps you not only to avoid dental problems and protect your natural teeth but also to diagnose conditions such as oral cancer and denture stomatitis, which affect people regardless of the condition of their teeth. When problems like oral cancer are diagnosed in the early stages of development, it is easier for our dentist to provide treatment, and that treatment is more likely to be successful.

Preventive dentistry includes:

  • Home care (brushing and flossing)
  • Regular dental cleanings and exams
  • Preventive treatments such as dental sealants and fluoride treatment
  • Checking that oral appliances and dental restorations are in good condition
  • Reviewing your diet and any habits that may affect your oral health
  • Recommending oral health products or hygiene aids for your use

We recommend that you visit our office every six months to receive regular preventive care. These routine appointments will help our dentist monitor your oral health and ensure that you receive any treatments you may need.

The patient care at Encompass Dental Studios is amazing. All the staff are very kind and welcoming. I can really tell they care about their patients and providing the best health care. They don't rush their work, and are very detailed, which I appreciate. The practice is very clean, and all the staff are dressed very professional. I am in the medical field, and currently in Nursing School, so I know what it's like to care for patients. The team at Encompass Studios are the best!
