Preventive Dentistry

When it comes to your oral and overall health, it is always better to prevent problems than treat them. At Tara Hills Dental, we work with you to maintain your smile’s health. While visiting our office, Dr. Feriel El Ghaoui and her team will clean and examine your mouth; we will also help you know what you can do at home to continue proper oral care. We invite you to learn more about how you can benefit from preventive dentistry in Pinole, California, by contacting us at 510-724-7474 and scheduling an appointment with our dentist today.

The goal of preventive care is to protect your smile from damage caused by tooth decay, periodontal disease (gum disease), and other damaging dental conditions. Preventive dentistry works to prevent these diseases before they cause damage that requires repair. We offer a number of preventive dental treatments to help you keep your smile in the best possible health. These services include dental sealants and dental cleanings; visiting our office regularly ensures that we detect and treat any early signs of damage before they become more extensive and painful.

There are several steps you can take to prevent cavities and tooth decay. Our dentist recommends that you follow these guidelines to help minimize your chances for developing cavities:

  • Brush and floss your teeth every day. You should brush at least twice a day and floss at least once a day. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a fluoridated toothpaste.
  • Maintain a balanced, healthy diet with a limited amount of very sugary or acidic foods.
  • Visit our office at least twice a year for a routine teeth cleaning and dental exam.
  • Ask your dentist about dental sealants and fluoride treatment to see if they are right for your smile.
