What Preventive Services Do You Offer?

We offer a full range of preventive services in Livermore, Pleasanton, and East Dublin, including x-rays, cleanings, fluoride treatments, dental sealants, periodontal care, and oral cancer screenings. At Kitty Hawk Dental Care, we believe that the best dental treatment will help you avoid oral issues altogether. Our goal is to ensure that every time you leave our office, you feel happier and healthier than when you came in.

What Can I Expect From My Teeth Cleaning & X-Rays?

First, one of our hygienists will remove plaque and tartar from your teeth using specialized dental tools. Then, your teeth will be cleaned and polished with a powerful brush, and we’ll floss thoroughly between your teeth to remove any remaining particles. We may take x-rays of your mouth, if necessary. After this, Dr. King will come into the office to examine your mouth and review your x-rays before discussing your oral health with you.

What Are Fluoride Treatments?

Fluoride treatments are a quick, painless procedure that consists of painting a fluoride-rich liquid onto your teeth. Fluoride helps strengthen teeth and can even reverse minor cases of tooth decay through a process called “remineralization.” With regular fluoride treatments, you can keep your teeth healthy and avoid cavities.

What Are Dental Sealants?

Dental sealants use a liquid plastic resin that’s painted onto your rear teeth after a cleaning. This resin is then hardened with a UV light, creating a transparent, durable barrier that prevents oral bacteria, food particles and acid from contacting your enamel. In turn, this prevents cavity formation. When properly cared for, sealants can help prevent cavities for up to 10 years after application.

What Is Periodontal Care (Scaling & Root Planing)?

This procedure involves removing plaque and tartar buildup from between your teeth and gums. It’s typically the first procedure recommended if you’re suffering from gingivitis (the first stage of gum disease). Along with antibiotics, periodontal care will help destroy the bacteria that cause gum disease, restoring your oral health.

What Is An Oral Cancer Screening?

We offer oral cancer screenings as part of our regular 6-month teeth cleanings and oral exams. During an oral cancer screening, Dr. King will take a look at your mouth with an intraoral camera and keep an eye out for things like lesions, discolored patches of tissue, lumps, and other abnormalities. This gives you peace of mind and ensures you can get further treatment right away if we notice an issue.

Why Are 6-Month Dental Visits So Important?

6-month dental visits are the best way to keep your teeth healthy and to check for signs of oral health issues like gum disease, tooth decay, and oral cancer. During these preventive appointments, we’ll also be able to remove plaque and tartar buildup, keeping your smile bright and beautiful.

What Issues Can I Avoid with Preventive Dentistry?

The goal of preventive dentistry is to help prevent a wide range of dental issues, including tooth decay, tooth infections and gum disease. It can also help prevent dental health issues like teeth grinding, TMJ/TMD, and more.
