General & Family Dentistry in Buffalo Grove
General dentistry serves as the fundamental basis for a lifetime of optimal oral health. Though Dr. Natalya does offer restorative dentistry services to repair damaged smiles, our primary goal is to prevent decay and disease in the first place. With preventive dentistry treatments customized to fulfill your unique needs, Countryside Dental is your trusted source for exams, dental hygiene, children's dentistry, and so much more.
Periodic Exams and Cleanings
Your home hygiene routine is a critical component of your smile's continued health. Brushing, flossing, and using an ADA-approved mouthwash every day reduces your risk of developing a variety of oral health issues, including tooth decay and gum disease. Biannual checkups at Countryside Dental, however, are even more important. It is during these general dentistry visits that our team meticulously examines each and every surface of your teeth and gums, carefully clearing away any plaque or tartar that may have accumulated in hard-to-reach places. You'll leave our office feeling refreshed and confident in the health of your smile.
Prevent Cavities with Dental Sealants
Dental sealants are thin, protective layers of resin coating that are painted over the chewing surfaces of the teeth. They are primarily used to protect the molars and premolars in children and teens, though some adult cases may warrant the use of sealants as well. Acid-causing bacteria and food debris tend to result in decay most frequently in the deep grooves of these teeth, and cleaning them properly can prove a challenge to young children who are just learning to brush. The sealant application process is quick and painless. Within mere minutes, the teeth are protected against cavities for up to 10 years.
Periodontal Care for Healthy Gums
Did you know that the health of your gums greatly impacts your overall health as well? Periodontal disease affects up to 85% of American adults, making it one of the most prevalent health conditions in the country. Keeping your gums healthy as you age substantially diminishes your risk of developing related health conditions, including heart disease, stroke, pancreatic cancer, and respiratory illnesses, among others. With routine care as well as scaling and root planing, our team can return your gums to health and comfort.
Oral Cancer Screening Saves Lives
At Countryside Dental, our goal is to help each and every one of our patients enjoy a lifetime of exceptional oral health and happy, beautiful smiles. To this end, we perform oral cancer screenings at periodic checkups, ensuring that our patients have the clear advantage when it comes to fighting this aggressive disease. Successful treatment of oral cancer is dependent largely upon early detection, and the importance of screening cannot be emphasized enough. Oral cancer screening is painless and included as a part of our general dentistry services.
