Preventative Care

Helping our patients maintain a healthy mouth and smile is the main goal of general dentistry. We prefer to provide more minor, preventive care than to see patients suffer with more intensive treatments from a problem that was not managed in time. We want to ensure that your oral health is in its optimal state and positively contributing to the health of your entire body. We are here to brighten your smile and pave the way for a brighter life.

Cleanings And Exams (prophylaxis)

Having a dental practice perform a checkup and regular cleaning gives a preventive approach to dental care. These general dentistry treatments help prevent problems with your teeth, gums and jaw bones, or they catch and manage problems before they worsen. During your visit, our doctors will take a picture of the current standing of your dental health and what would be needed to keep your oral hygiene in its best state.

Aro Dental is pleased to offer sealants for our patients.

When we apply a dental sealant, we paint a plastic coating on top of your teeth. This makes your teeth smooth getting rid of the rough edges, depressions, and grooves that are commonly found on teeth. It is essentially a protective coating against tooth decay and cavities.

The most common place to paint sealants is on back teeth since they are often irregular. They can also be very hard to reach, even if you brush your teeth regularly. We use it more on children though we do perform sealants on adults too!

Don’t hesitate to contact us today at (805) 541-4290 if you have any questions about sealants.

Home Care Education

Here at Aro Dental, we are dedicated to your recovery both in and out of the office. After endodontic treatment your tooth and surrounding gum tissue may be tender for several days as a result of the previous condition of your tooth and the manipulation of the tooth and gums during the procedure. This tenderness is normal and is no cause for alarm.

Continue your regular dental hygiene regimen.

Do not chew food on the affected side of your mouth until your endodontic therapy is complete and your dentist has covered your tooth with a protective restoration.

Discomfort may be alleviated by taking ibuprofen (Advil), acetaminophen (Tylenol), or aspirin as directed. Drinking alcohol is not advised while taking any of these medications.

If swelling should develop or your discomfort cannot be controlled with medication, please contact the office immediately.

If you have any questions about your home care following treatment, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (805) 541-4290.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Nobody wants to hear that they may have oral cancer. Although it can be fatal, it is easier to treat the earlier it is caught. For this reason, we are proud to assist our patients with an oral cancer screening. We want to help our patients survive this often fatal disease.

Oral cancer will typically show up as white or red patches or lesions inside of your mouth. You may even notice the lesions on your tongue or on the floor of your mouth. Many people experience a hard time swallowing, bleeding in the mouth, or even swelling in your face or neck.
