King Dental

What is preventive dentistry?

Preventive dental care in Huntsville, AL, is all the services offered by your dentist that help to protect your teeth and your dental health, such as:

  • Teeth cleanings
  • Examinations
  • X-rays
  • Fluoride treatment
  • Dental sealants
  • Periodontal treatment (for gum disease)

When you visit your Huntsville dentist every six months for teeth cleanings and checkups, it protects your dental health and budget.

For example, if Dr. King detects tooth decay in your tooth early on, it will likely be small enough to treat with a simple dental filling. However, if tooth decay remains undiagnosed or untreated, it progressively worsens and can make its way deeper into your tooth, ultimately resulting in a tooth infection. If your tooth is infected, you'll likely need root canal treatment to eliminate the infection and save your tooth.

Treating dental concerns as early as possible saves you time in the dental chair and stress on your mind and budget. That's where preventive care comes in!

Even better, most dental insurance companies cover the cost of preventive dental appointments, which means minimal (if any) out-of-pocket costs to you when you visit your dentist every six months.
