Routine dental care is the foundation of a healthy smile that lasts a lifetime- or for as long as possible. At Park Dental we emphasize the importance of routine dental visits for maintaining your dental health. When you visit with us regularly we can work with you to manage any risk factors you may have so that you can keep your smile healthy between visits and avoid common dental problems like tooth decay and gum disease.
Dr. Patel provides complete general dentistry services for children and adults using advanced digital technology and high-quality materials. General dental services are focused on the maintenance of healthy and stable teeth and gums to support long term dental health. They are the foundation of dentistry and your care in our Hilliard dentist office.
Why visit the dentist?
Dr. Patel recommends that all patients visit with us at least twice a year for a routine dental exam and dental cleaning. During these preventive care visits, we also screen for the early signs of disease and oral symptoms of health concerns, including:
- Tooth decay and cavities
- Gum disease
- Oral cancer
- Occlusal disease and signs of a bite problem
Routine dental care can help you prevent complex problems and the effects of advanced disease due to a lack of dental care. Regular visits also enable Dr. Patel and our dental care team to get to know you better with the goal of providing the most personalized care possible for your oral health and wellness. We can work with you to manage your unique risk factors, the effects of a medical condition or prescribed medication and your oral health goals.
Cavity prevention: the key to maintaining a healthy smile.
Tooth decay can affect patients of all ages, from young babies with only primary teeth to senior adults. Park Dental places an emphasis on the importance of routine dental care to minimize the incidence of tooth decay. A professional dental cleaning can provide a more thorough and comprehensive result when compared to at-home tooth brushing. It also allows us to identify developing concerns or genetic risk factors that should be managed with ongoing oral hygiene. Dr. Patel may recommend specific at-home products or additional dental visits if you are prone to tooth decay or have a medical condition that can affect the health of the teeth or gums.
Decay and cavities often degrade tooth structure and the integrity of your smile. When decay is left untreated it can lead to tooth loss and other complex problems. Catching and treating tooth decay early often means that conservative treatment can be successful and
