Preventative Dentistry

Preventative Dentistry Elk Grove, CA

Preventative dentistry means to take care of all the routine cleaning and tooth maintenance, before cavities and tooth decay ever have a chance to form. With proper medical care and direction, we can reach this goal with all our patients.

As we do our part with regular cleanings and health assessments, don’t forget that the most important care is the everyday routine of brushing and flossing. So, read below to brush up on some oral health information and tips!

The power of prevention

There is one very effective way you can avoid spending a lot of time in the dental chair: Make sure you see Dr. Bellamy at least twice a year. Our expert diagnostic exams, including careful evaluation of digital x-rays and professional cleaning with special instruments, can help our dentists spot small areas of concern. When we catch contained areas of decay, we are able to apply conservative dental treatments (such as dental fillings or bonding) to protect against deep cavities and damaging decay. You should also make sure you work hard with brushing and flossing at home and call our office at (916) 683-3011 if you experience pain, soreness, a loose tooth, or other dental problems.

Dr. Wallace J. Bellamy also performs oral cancer screenings during each checkup to ensure your mouth is free of abnormal growths or precancerous lesions.
