Preventive Dentistry

Esthetic Dental Group providing Preventive Dental Care

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”.
Starting with our comprehensive initial exams, our #1 and main priority is to help you keep healthy and beautiful teeth for a lifetime. Our dental team will help you develop a system to care for your teeth at home, and we work hard to detect small issues before they become big problems.
Whether you are looking for a way to protect your son’s smile during a football game, or be it getting ready for that BIG day, or you are suffering from red and swollen gums, please take a few minutes to read the information below and do not hesitate to give us a call.  Our team is ready.
Dental Hygiene
Every detail of the Esthetic Dental Group is oriented toward your dental health and comfort. Your routine visits are very important for general dental hygiene. Our accomplished doctors are complimented by our highly trained team who are skilled at making you feel comfortable and relaxed throughout your visit.
In addition to performing diligent oral care at home, you should see your dentist every six months for an oral exam to ensure continued health of your teeth and gums. If you skip just one routine checkup with your dentist, any new oral health issues can rapidly advance and require expensive and invasive treatments. Regular checkups ensure that problems can be caught early and treated conservatively, and some oral health issues can even be reversed if spotted in the earliest stages.
We recommend a professional dental hygiene visit at least twice a year. Your visit will include professional cleaning, tartar removal, plaque removal, x-rays (if needed) and fluoride treatment.
Your beautiful and healthy smile is our mission.
Dental Checkups in Hartford, CT
The American Dental Association and our team at Esthetic Dental Group recommend a professional checkup and cleaning twice per year. During these periodic hygiene checkups, a member of our dedicated team will make sure that you are comfortable and relaxed before performing a thorough cleaning and assessment of your teeth and gums. These routine checkups also present the perfect opportunity to ask any questions you may have about treatment and your oral health.
Fluoride Treatment
Fluoride is a naturally occurring element that fortifies the strength of tooth enamel. The fluoride preparation used in the dental office is a much stronger concentration than that in toothpastes or fluoride mouthrinse that may be available in a store or at a pharmacy. Professional fluoride treatments generally take just a few minutes.
With fluoride treatments at Esthetic Dental Group, we can ensure that your teeth are better protected against the acid-causing bacteria responsible for tooth decay. This type of treatment is particularly helpful for children and adults who are at a high risk for dental caries.
Periodontal Therapy in Hartford, CT
The doctors of the Esthetic Dental Group have extensive experience and continued educational training for all aspects of periodontal treatments and gum diseases. The periodontal treatments we provide are based on the patient’s unique requirements but are most frequently classified as Gingivitis or periodontitis.
Common risk factors to consider include:
• tobacco smoking or chewing
• systemic diseases such as diabetes
• some types of medication such as steroids, some types of anti-epilepsy drugs, cancer therapy drugs, some calcium channel blockers and oral contraceptives
• bridges that no longer fit properly
• crooked teeth
• fillings that have become defective
• pregnancy
Several warning signs that can signal a problem:
• Gums that bleed easily
• Red, swollen, tender gums
• Gums that have pulled away from the teeth
• Persistent bad breath or bad taste
• Permanent teeth that are loose or separating
• Any change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite
• Any change in the fit of partial dentures
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you feel as though you may require periodontal treatment.

Oral Cancer Screening You may not think ‘dentist’ when you hear the words `cancer screening,’ but part of every dental check up involves looking for early signs of oral cancer. During your dental hygiene exam, our doctors and hygienists perform routine oral cancer screenings by inspecting a patient’s tongue, floor and roof of the mouth. If these preliminary screenings warrant additional investigation, our doctors or hygienists may suggest additional steps.
Athletic Mouthguards
According to the American Dental Association, properly fitted athletic mouthguards effectively prevent approximately 200,000 injuries in collegiate and high school football every year. Custom-fitted to your unique dentition, our athletic mouthguards have been shown to reduce the risk of serious injury to the lips, tongue, teeth, gums, and jaw. In fact, athletic mouthguards can even diminish the severity of concussions sustained during gameplay.

Sealants
Dental sealants are ultra-thin layers of coating that are applied to the chewing surfaces of teeth to protect them from harmful bacteria. Because the molars and premolars feature deep grooves along their chewing surfaces, they are more susceptible to dental caries. Once applied, sealants provide several years of increased protection from cavities. The sealant application process takes only a few minutes per tooth and is completely painless.
