PREVENTIVE DENTISTRY

At Gentle Dental we believe that Prevention is better than cure.By doing regular checkups every 6 months and xrays every year we can catch the problems early and prevent them from getting worse.Regular cleanings are also a part of Preventive dentistry that will prevent Gum disease which will ultimately lead to tooth loss.Regular cleaning includes removal of harmful bacteria and plaque/tartar that will also lead to cavities.Dr Konda recommends a cleaning atleast every 6 months to prevent gum disease and cavities.

One of the most important aspect during regular check ups is ORAL CANCER SCREENING.Dr Konda will perform an oral cancer screening on every patient every 6 months to look for signs of cancer or precancerous conditions in your mouth.The goal of oral cancer screening is to identify mouth cancer early,when there is a greater chance for a cure.
