Cleanings & Prevention

Preventive Dentistry in Honolulu- HI Dentistry

A preventive program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental staff to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions. At Dennis T. Nagata, DDS, our Honolulu dentists are committed to helping all patients at every age keep their smiles healthy before and after regular cleanings & exams.

Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet.  It is continued in the dental office by the efforts of your dentist and dental hygienist to promote, restore, and maintain your oral health.

Prevention also includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Sealants and fluoride are also great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth. During your six month check-ups, our dentists will conduct an in-depth examination of your smile, identify problem areas, and help you understand your treatment options. As we offer a number of restorative treatments in office, our patients are often able to leave Dr. Nagata's office with a fully treated smile in just one appointment

Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident, beautiful smile. If it's time for your six month cleaning, call Dr. Nagata today and schedule your next appointment! We look forward to seeing you.
