What your dentist in Apple Valley, California wants you to knowpreventative dentistry

Brushing and flossing are great ways to protect your smile, but is it enough? The fact is you don’t have to protect your smile all by yourself. Your dentist provides important preventive care services that can help ensure you enjoy a healthy smile that can last a lifetime.

Dr. Samuel Kim at Apple Valley Dental in Apple Valley, California wants to share why preventive care is important. He proudly serves the residents of Apple Valley and Lucerne Valley, California.

Many dental problems can only be diagnosed with a comprehensive dental examination and x-rays. That means you can have a major dental problem brewing, and you might not even know it.

Dr. Kim uses only state-of-the-art technology to diagnose and treat your dental problems. Preventive dental care can help you guard against tooth decay, a dental abscess, gum disease and periodontal disease. Early detection of a dental issue can lead to a better outcome, saving you money, time, and potential pain down the road. If you procrastinate with preventive care, it can lead to:

  • A small cavity turning into the need for a large filling or crown
  • A large cavity turning into the need for a root canal or extraction
  • Tooth removal turning into the need for expensive tooth replacement
  • Gum disease turning into periodontal disease and bone loss
  • Periodontal disease and bone loss turning into tooth loss

Dr. Kim offers a full range of preventive services for both children and adults, including:

  • Professional cleanings
  • Fluoride treatments
  • Oral hygiene instruction
  • Preventive dental sealants
  • Oral cancer screenings
  • Athletic mouthguards
  • Bruxism appliances and nightguards
