Preventive Care

Drs. Pinkhasov and Yusufov and the staff at Dental Excellence believe in the importance of preventative care. We focus on keeping patients in good oral heath so that they can live a full, healthy, and enjoyable life that is free from oral pain. This starts by educating our patients on what they can do to stay healthy at home.

In our family dentist office we recommend that patients eat a healthy diet, drink water and reduce sugar intake. It is also important to brush and floss throughout the day. Instead of waiting for bedtime to brush teeth, carry a small toothbrush and use it after meals and snacks. This makes it possible to remove sugar and bacteria from the teeth and gums before it has the opportunity to turn into acid that can attack the teeth. This preventative step can greatly reduce a persons’ risk of getting a cavity or gum disease.

Visits to dental office

Everyone should have his or her teeth cleaned and examined at least twice a year. During these dental exams Drs. Pinkhasov and Yusufov will make sure that your teeth are thoroughly cleaned and look for any signs of cavities or gum disease. If any are found, they will be treated right away before they can spread and create additional problems.

Age groups

We treat adults, children, and seniors at Dental Excellence. Each age group requires a different approach because dental needs and oral health changes with time. For example, with children the goal is to keep them comfortable and relaxed so that they will enjoy visiting our dentist office and be willing to come back. Additionally, we focus on keeping their teeth healthy and free from cavities.

In adults, we also focus on keeping teeth healthy with preventative care but end up treating a large number of patients that have damaged their teeth and need restorative solutions.

Seniors, on the other hand, often struggle with gum disease and oral infections. As people age, their teeth can become weaker and infected more easily. Bone loss is incredibly common with seniors and by conducting regular dental exams Drs. Pinkhasov and Yusufov and the staff at Dental Excellence can help seniors to have strong teeth and reduce the risk of them falling out.
