Our Miramar & Pembroke Pines Family Dentistry
Regardless of your age, preventive dentistry is crucial to keeping your smile healthy and functional. At our new, state-of-the-art locations in Miramar
and Pembroke Pines
, the Premier Dental Center team provides effective dentistry and the skills needed to keep your smile healthy at home.
Preventive Dental Care for Children
The oral hygiene habits we develop as children carry over into adulthood. Teaching children ineffectual oral hygiene can compromise their oral health and dental function as adults. Premier Dental Center recommends parents bring their children in for their first dental check-up at the age of three to learn healthy habits.
During these initial appointments, our Pembroke Pines and Miramar dentists use kid-friendly language and hands-on demonstrations to show children the right way to brush and floss their teeth. After checking your child’s smile for signs of cavities and decay, our dentists apply sealants and use fluoride to protect baby teeth from bacteria.
Following the appointment, our dentists provide parents with recommendations on maintaining their child’s healthy smile at home. To prevent cavities from developing between visits to our family dental offices, we recommend that parents help their children brush and floss and check their child’s teeth for dark spots, which could be signs of decay.
Effective Preventive Dentistry for Adults
Often, teen and adult patients think that simply brushing and flossing at home is enough to prevent cavities and periodontal disease. However, regular dental visits are a crucial component of ensuring a healthy smile for years to come. Forgetting to visit the dentist twice a year can put patients at risk of developing serious dental conditions that require extensive and expensive restorative care in the future.
In addition to monitoring your smile for changes, routine dental visits also serve as an important educational opportunity. During their appointments, patients are encouraged to ask questions about changes they’ve noticed in their smile. At our state-of-the-art Pembroke Pines location, our team uses innovative technology, such as intraoral cameras and digital lasers, to show patients the condition of their dentition. This ensures greater treatment planning and provides patients with an in–depth visualization of their smiles so they can better understand how different treatments may impact the health and function of their dentition.
