While many people don’t realize this, oral health directly influences overall health as well. If extensive decay appears, it can negatively affect development and growth, especially at a young age. Thankfully, maintaining positive oral health (and by proxy overall health) is simple and straightforward with the help of Dr. Tim Hung and our team. Through preventive dentitry in Woodinville, WA, including dental checkups, dental cleanings, X-rays, fluoride treatments, non-invasive oral cancer screenings, and other forms of care, we are sure to give you the confidence to smile. To schedule your very first appointment, give our dental office a call today!
Dental checkups and cleanings are some of the most important (and most affordable) forms of dental care you can get. For one, these preventive treatments are designed to catch early signs of dental issues before they turn into dental emergencies, not just confirm if your at-home care is sufficient. One of our highly-trained hygienists will clean your mouth of all plaque and tartar, preventing cavities and gum disease from developing. By the end of your appointment, you’ll have a smile that feels freshly cleaned from top to bottom!
If you have active family members who enjoy playing contact sports on a regular basis, you’re going to need the right protective gear to maintain your smile. This is especially true if you are younger and still have developing teeth. Our office creates customized athletic mouthguards that you’ll actually want to wear. Unlike store-bought solutions, these appliances offer the most optimal protection and are designed to last many years of wear, so you can feel confident playing football, basketball, hockey, or another common contact sport.
Dr. Hung is not only looking for tooth decay and gum disease during your routine exam. He’s also making sure that no early signs of oral cancer are present, including red or white patches of tissue, sores that fail to heal properly, and lumps or bumps in the mouth or the neck. Oral cancer is the sixth most common form of cancer in the world, but it is also highly treatable when caught in the early stages of development.
Your oral care products should contain fluoride, an essential mineral for maintaining strong and healthy enamel. This mineral is found in not only your oral care products but in many of the foods you eat as well as your public drinking water. Following your routine cleaning, our team applies a fluoride treatment directly to your enamel as a way to offer additional protection from cavity-causing bacteria in between visits. For optimal protection, we recommend them at least once every six months, but this can vary depending on your current oral health.
Children require a special level of attention when it comes to their oral health. Dr. Hung does everything he can to protect their smile from cavities and gum disease as well as make them feel comfortable every time they sit in the dental chair. Establishing a good first impression is key to making future visits easier, regardless of the type of care your child needs. His gentle touch is sure to make your youngest family members feeling confident about their care moving forward.
If we believe that your child is at risk of developing cavities, especially in their molars and premolars, we will likely recommend dental sealants as a preventive measure. This treatment utilizes composite resin to seal the deep pits and cracks inside teeth away from harmful bacteria and food debris. Not only do sealants make oral care at home easier for your child, but they provide significant protection against cavity-causing bacteria.
