Why preventative dentistry is a key component of good oral health

Why preventative dentistry is a key component of good oral health

At Saifee Family Dentistry, your family’s oral health care is our top priority. Our state-of-the-art offices are located in Spring, TX. and our modern and up-to-date equipment and systems ensure that you are receiving the very best care possible.

Educating our patients is one of our top priorities. We strive to make sure that you understand every step of your procedure from the moment you walk into the office. Dr. Husein AliBhai takes the time to listen to your questions and provide you with the answers that you need to feel safe, secure and comfortable with your dental work.

Preventative Dentistry

When it comes to oral health, prevention is the key. Regular dental checkups every six months, coupled with good oral health habits at home will help to keep your teeth and gums in good condition and prevent damage and decay. Good oral hygiene habits include:

  • Brushing and flossing after every meal.
  • Using an anti-microbial mouthwash
  • Making sure that children under 12 either brush using fluoridated toothpaste or take a fluoride supplement

Preventative Services That We Offer

Saifee Family Dentistry offers a comprehensive array of services designed to meet all your dental needs. Our state-of-the-art digital x-ray system eliminates the need for film, allowing you to see your results on the computer screen immediately. Digital x-rays also involve almost 90% less radiation than traditional x-rays and offer a clearer image than film x-rays.

Our intra-oral cameras are designed to provide you with a clear picture of what is going on inside your mouth, with no discomfort. A small pen-like device is attached to the computer via USB, and allows the doctor to take a video of the inside of your mouth, which can then be viewed on the computer monitor.

We at Saifee Family Dentistry understand that sometimes going to the dentist can be a frightening process, even for simple cleanings. We are proud to offer sedation dentistry, either through the use of nitrous oxide or oral sedation. If you have experienced issues in the past, including a previously traumatic dental visit, extremely sensitive teeth, an over-sensitive gag reflex, a fear of needles or shots, or just have a very high sense of fear when it comes to the dentist, let us put your mind at ease knowing that we can provide care at the highest level of comfort.

If you choose to have one of our sedation methods used, you will need to bring a companion with you on the day of your appointment, as you will not be able to drive when you are done. Our monitoring equipment will track your vital signs throughout the process, and chances are once you have finished your treatment, you will not even remember what took place.The effects will wear off in a few hours, and we will provide you with post-treatment instructions to ensure your comfort.

Call our Spring, TX. Office today at (281) 350-5600 and let us schedule your appointment without further delay. Your teeth will thank you!
