Your Key to a Healthier Smile with Preventive Dentistry

At Chacon Dental Studio, preventive dental care is usually the core of our dental practice. Why? Because we understand preventive dentistry is the simplest and most cost-effective technique of maintaining a healthy smile. In line with this, we have a dedicated team and advanced technology to help you with preventive dental care every step of the way.

How our Dental Practice steps up your Preventive Dental Care

Dr. Robert A. Chacon Jr. recommends patients see a dentist at least once every six months. Unfortunately, most patients are too busy or don’t see the need to visit a dentist – after all, why fix what isn’t broken. Observing dental appointments may look like an inconvenience now, but it saves you costly and painful treatments down the road.

In our dental practice, here are the services we offer for our Dublin, California, residents to keep their oral health in tip-top condition:

  • Dental exams: Visual and dental x-rays are crucial in examining your overall dental health. We lookout for signs of cavities and gum disease during dental exams and recommend effective treatments to restore your oral health to its former self.
  • Dental cleanings: We know what you are thinking. I brush and floss my teeth religiously; why do I need professional cleaning? Here is the reason. At-home oral care is excellent but doesn’t remove all tartar build-up in our mouth. For this reason, dental cleanings complement your oral hygiene by eliminating calculus build-up, threatening your oral health.
  • Oral cancer screening: Our dental team screens your mouth to look out for early signs of oral cancer. We recommend further testing to rule out mouth cancer if we spot sores, lumps, patches, and other abnormalities.

Although dental appointments are great for your oral health, much of the preventive care is done at your home. Dr. Chacon advises patients to diligently follow the below at-home oral hygiene tips to maintain healthy teeth and gums:

  • Brush twice daily
  • Floss daily
  • Consider mouth rinsing
  • Keep your mouth hydrated, eat nutrient-rich foods, and limit sugary foods intake
  • Avoid tobacco use
  • Use a nightguard if you have bruxism (teeth grinding)
