Take Control of Your Oral Health with Preventative Dentistry

Would you rather visit a dentist in Newport Beach, California, to restore your smile than practice preventive dental care? The answer to that question is obvious. A healthy mouth is built on preventive dentistry. Instead of addressing issues as they arise, Newport Smiles encourages you to engage in proactive dentistry, actively working to safeguard your mouth from decay, infections, and other potential problems.

While you maintain your teeth at home with brushing and flossing, your oral hygiene isn’t complete without bi-annual appointments with Dr. Aarti Puri and the team. Regular preventive services prevent, detect, and treat issues before they escalate into major headaches.

Our preventive dental care services

Dr. Puri and the team know that when we prevent oral problems, half the battle to maintain a healthy, beautiful smile is won. Preventive dental care is a collaborative effort between the patient and the dentist. In your home, upholding your dental well-being by adopting a dental-friendly diet and consistently practicing thorough brushing and flossing is essential. At our office, we help you maintain optimal oral health with the services below.

  • Routine dental exams: Regular oral check-ups allow us to inspect your mouth for signs of gum disease, decay, mouth cancer, dental misalignment, etc. These routine screenings are crucial in identifying and treating oral problems before they become painful and expensive to treat.
  • Dental cleanings: We know you conscientiously clean your teeth and gums at home. Yet, you must see a dentist every six months for routine cleanings. During professional cleanings, the dental hygienist removes built-in plaque and tartar from hard-to-access areas in the mouth. 
  • Digital X-rays: Digital radiographs allow us to spot hidden signs of decay and infections missed in a visual exam. Nervous about x-rays? Don’t be! We use modern x-rays that emit 80-90% less radiation than traditional x-rays. 
  • Periodontal care: Our services include gum disease prevention and treatment options to maintain healthy gums.

Our preventative dentistry also extends to children. We understand that children’s dental care sets your child up for a lifetime of good oral health. Our team is specially trained to offer dental care in a fun and exciting manner, just the way kids love.
