Preventive Dentistry from Alpine Dental Care in Cupertino, CA
We know that keeping your natural teeth healthy for as long as possible is important to you. Dr. Huang stresses lifetime prevention as the primary means of obtaining and maintaining the perfect smile. That is why our family-friendly dental practice in Cupertino, CA provides an extensive array of preventive dentistry services for patients of all ages, offering our patients the treatment, tools, and knowledge they need to maintain beautiful, healthy smiles for years to come.
Preventive Dentistry for a Lifetime of Oral Health
Our preventive program begins with a comprehensive one-hour new patient exam. This includes the recording of your dental/medical history, a visual oral examination, x-rays, prophylaxis (preventive cleaning), and instructions in oral hygiene. We will perform a meticulous cleaning, and Dr. Huang will check for warning signs of any possible dental or gum irregularities.
Through individualized education, we help you develop better dental hygiene habits and correct any dental misconceptions you may have. We enjoy educating patients in the importance of prevention, and many are surprised to learn how simple it is to manage their own oral health rather than allowing insurance coverage to dictate treatment decisions.
We believe that each and every patient deserves the opportunity to enjoy the full benefits of a healthy, happy smile, so we combine state-of-the-art technology, superior skill, and a genuine passion for helping people into one convenient category: preventive dentistry.
Cupertino Preventive Dentistry You Can Trust
Routine dental checkups and cleanings are the critical building blocks of optimal oral health. Too many patients believe that it is only time to see the dentist when something goes wrong, such as an injury, bleeding gums, or a toothache that doesn’t subside. Dr. Huang and our team emphasize the importance of preventive care for a number of reasons, reminding his patients that prevention is more enjoyable, less costly, and more comfortable than many of the procedures needed to treat more complex problems later.
We urge our adult patients to see us regularly (usually every 6 months), which allows us to intercept little problems while they're still small. That's also why we like to see children as early as their third birthday so that we can apply decay-preventing dental sealants as needed, as well as correct inappropriate growth patterns before they set the stage for more involved problems down the road.
Our preventive dentistry treatments include:
- Thorough Hygiene Program
- Dental Sealants
- Regular Checkups
- Individualized Patient Education
