What Is Preventive Dentistry?

Preventive dentistry is what many people refer to as routine or general dental care. All preventive treatments and services aim to prevent problems such as gum disease, cavities, infections, and tooth damage due to teeth grinding or clenching. Moreover, comprehensive oral exams are an essential preventive service when it comes to early detection of serious oral health problems such as tumors, periodontal disease or oral cancer.  

At Hi-Fi Dental, Dr. Napoleon provides preventive dentistry from the youngest members of your family to the oldest members of your family, and everyone in between. As a technologically advanced dental practice, our office is equipped with the latest innovations in digital dentistry, including early cavity detection devices, and non-invasive oral cancer screening devices.

at Hi-Fi Dental

Hi-Fi Dental provides comprehensive preventive dental care to patients of all ages. Services, procedures, and treatments we provide include:

Professional Dental Cleanings

Dental Cleaning

Dental cleanings remove plaque and tartar that cannot be removed with at-home brushing and flossing. Removing plaque and tartar is essential for preventing gum disease, tooth decay, and infections.

Dental Sealants

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are painless, noninvasive treatments that protect teeth with deep grooves, such as the molars, from developing cavities.

Fluoride Treatments

Flouride Treatment

Fluoride treatments help strengthen the enamel of teeth to prevent decay (cavities).

Custom Mouth Guards for Athletes


Custom mouth guards fit and protect the teeth more effectively than store-bought, one-size-fits-all mouth guards. Custom mouth guards are available at Hi-Fi Dental for all ages.

Frequently Asked Questions About Preventive Dentistry

How early does my child need to see a dentist?
Children should see a dentist once they get their first tooth, or by their first birthday. Establishing regular dental care early in life helps lay a foundation for lasting oral health.
How often do I need to go to the dentist?
Everyone should see the dentist at least every six months for regular preventive care. Often patients do require more frequent hygiene visits and that can be discussed with your dentist and hygienist. However, if you develop pain, swelling, bleeding, or a change in color to the gums, between regular appointments, schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
Are dental sealants safe?
Yes. dental sealants have been used for decades to prevent dental cavities. They are a painless, noninvasive “ paint on” preventive treatment, primarily for children.
Do teeth cleanings hurt?
Routine teeth cleanings should not cause any pain. If you are fearful of the tools used to clean the teeth, notify our team. Mild relaxation via nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is available.
Does insurance cover preventive treatments?
Preventive dental care is virtually always covered by dental insurance plans. However, the specific coverage amounts can vary according to the coverage you or your employer purchased. For the most accurate information, check your specific coverage limits with your carrier.
How long does a routine dental appointment take?
An oral exam and routine dental cleaning typically lasts not more than one hour.
Do you offer relaxation for dental care?
Yes. We offer nitrous oxide for patients who experience fear, worry, or anxiety about dental care. Other sedation options are available, please ask.
Do oral cancer screenings hurt?
At Hi-Fi Dental, we use an advanced, entirely painless oral cancer detection device called a Velscope. It uses a special light that helps detect irregularities or changes in oral tissue that may require further diagnosis.
