What is preventive dentistry?

This branch of dentistry is practiced by many types of dentists including cosmetic dentists, family dentists, and general dentists. The entire purpose of it is to prevent dental problems because an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. The philosophy behind it is that if you simply prevent dental issues from developing, you won't ever need treatment for it. Therefore, all of these procedures are not treating an active problem but rather done so that small issues do not become big issues. Our long island city dentists are a big believer in preventative dentistry.

What our long island city dentists offer

Our general and cosmetic dentists at Jackson Ave Dental offer the full suite of preventative dentistry services in long island city:

  • Teeth cleaning

  • Dental Check up

  • Dental X-rays

  • Fluoride treatment

As long as you keep up with coming for your 6 month visits and getting the above 4 treatments done, you shouldn't ever develop a big dental problem. At most, you may end up with a small dental problem but it would only require a small treatment. The trick is to catch the problems while they are small!

The main goal of preventative dentistry with our LIC dentists

The family dentists at our LIC dental office only have one goal for preventive dentistry and that is to prevent as many dental problems from occurring as possible. The less problems that you have, the less time and money you will have to spend at our dental office. Perhaps that isn't the greatest business model for us but we hope that if you have a good experience, you'll refer your friends and families here so that'll keep us going!

The cost of preventative dentistry with a dentist in Long Island City

Dental insurance typically covers 100% of preventative services so if you have insurance you're fully covered. They will also cover the service twice a year or every 6 months so if you haven't used it all all, you're missing out on a benefit that costs you nothing!

If you don't have insurance, most dental offices in the neighborhood typically set their fees around the same level as one another. Our office is no exception but we do try our best to keep it towards the lower end because we don't want you to spend too much!
