Maintenance

What is dental maintenance?

Dental maintenance refers to dental work that focuses on services that are vital for your continued oral health. Preventive care, from regular checkups to brushing and flossing at home, is a big part of dental maintenance.

What types of procedures are considered dental maintenance?

Dr. Kabaklian and the staff at Enamel offer a number of dental maintenance procedures, including:

  • Biannual exams
  • Teeth cleanings
  • Lowest radiation X-rays — no more films that poke the top of your mouth
  • Fillings

Dr. Kabaklian and the team at Enamel believe in the use of materials that are biocompatible with your body. They want you to be as safe as possible when it comes to your health, which is why they take this holistic approach and use materials such as BPA-free and GMA-free white fillings when treating a cavity.

What is the purpose of dental maintenance?

Dental maintenance is done to ensure your mouth stays in good working order and your oral health isn’t being threatened by a condition or disease.

A common threat to your oral health, which dental maintenance looks to fight, is periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is a common, chronic infection of the bones and gums surrounding your teeth that occurs when plaque collects on the gum tissue, above or below the gum line. This can result in inflammation and discomfort, ultimately causing your body to destroy your gum and bone tissue, and causing your teeth to shift or fall out.

With proper preventive dental maintenance, many can avoid periodontal disease.

What are the benefits of dental maintenance?

Dr. Kabaklian knows it's crucial to get your mouth to a healthy state, regardless of any condition you might be suffering from, and that’s the goal of dental maintenance. Other benefits of dental maintenance include:

  • Fresher breath
  • A healthier, brighter smile
  • Improved oral health
  • Prevention of damaging conditions

While dental maintenance from the Enamel staff is vital, the importance of caring for your teeth at home can’t be overstated. Brushing and flossing multiple times a day is essential to minimize cavities and disease.
