Preventive Dentistry

preventive dentistry

Preventive dentistry is the practice of caring for teeth and gums to keep them healthy and free from decay, gum disease, and wear and tear. The preventive dentistry care offered at Zoma Dental in West Bloomfield Township, MI, is designed to support your oral health needs at all ages and stages of your life.

Dental Cleanings

You may brush and floss daily at home as recommended and take very good care of your teeth, but it is still important to supplement this effort with visits to your West Bloomfield dentist every six months. These appointments include:

  • Thorough teeth cleaning and removal of plaque and tartar
  • Dental exam
  • Oral cancer screening
  • X-rays (as needed)

Your dentist is on the lookout for any trouble spots during these dental visits. Giving your dentist the opportunity to see your teeth every six months can stop a problem before it has any time to really develop. Your dentist also has the knowledge and expertise to spot an area of concern, especially when it comes to something like gum disease or a hairline crack, that you would never recognize on your own.

Each dental cleaning comes with the opportunity to discuss your oral health, voice concerns, and get answers to any questions you have about your teeth and gums and potential cosmetic dentistry enhancements.

Second Opinion

At Zoma Dental, we offer a free second opinion to anyone who has concerns about the diagnosis and treatment plan they have received from another dental office. We are happy to help you determine:

  • If you really need the dental procedure recommended
  • Whether the repair will have staying power
  • If the cost you are being quoted is fair
  • Possible treatment options
  • What will happen if you don’t get this work done
  • The urgency of the situation

You will not be told what you want to hear, but rather be informed about the truth of your circumstances so you can make an informed and confident decision about how to proceed.

We want to provide our dental wisdom and experience to anyone who needs it, without any pressure. It’s always a good idea to get more than one opinion when it comes to undergoing major oral health procedures.

Gum Disease Treatment

Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss for adults in the United States. Nearly half the population suffers from some level of this infection.

If you have any of the following symptoms, you may be suffering from gum disease:

  • Swollen gums
  • Bleeding gums
  • Irritated gums
  • Tender gums
  • Red gums
  • Bad breath
  • Gum recession
  • Loose teeth

Every stage of gum disease is more severe than the last and, over time and without dental care, you will lose your teeth and destroy your oral health. Getting treatment is not difficult. Laser dentistry and deep cleanings can restore your oral health and dental restorations can follow to give you a beautiful smile once again.

Emergency Dentistry

It is so important to have a dental practice you can rely on for all your oral health needs, even those that occur at the most inconvenient times. A dental emergency can take many shapes, including:

  • Knocked-out tooth
  • Severe tooth pain
  • Dislodged tooth
  • Jaw injury
  • Broken tooth
  • Damaged dental work

Zoma Dental is ready to diagnose your circumstances and help you get relief from pain and discomfort, while completing dental restorations as needed to return your smile to excellent form and function.

Never try to wait until your next dental visit to tell your dentist about tooth pain or other oral health problems, or assume that the issue will go away if you’re just patient. Emergency dentistry exists for a reason – get help for your oral health problems immediately. Let your dentist decide what is an emergency so you don’t find yourself facing major dental work or tooth loss.
