The Importance of Prevention

When you implement a steady oral hygiene routine, you are not only substantially protecting your oral health, but you are helping preserve the beauty and function of your smile as well. Regular brushing and flossing, along with bi-annual dental checkups will aid you in the fight against complications such as gum disease. 

With a combined experience of over 40 years in the field of dental care, our Destrehan dentists utilize their knowledge in educating our patients about how their oral health and overall well-being are closely related. Keeping up a beautiful, healthy smile not only significantly impacts self-confidence but it increases your quality of life as well. 

Detailed Examinations 

We begin treatment with an initial consultation involving an in-depth examination of your current dental state. We check everything regarding the overall health of your smile. From examining for soft-tissue abnormalities to conducting thorough oral cancer screenings with the use of our in-office dental technology, Drs. Richard and Reid Owens look into all the possible factors contributing to your oral health. Our entire team utilizes modern technology to detect and identify any underlying dental issue that may be present. 

Once the status of your oral health is determined, we will work closely with you to recommend the best course of action for your treatment. 

Gentle Professional Cleanings 

Consistency and thoroughness with your at-home oral hygiene routine are essential. Brushing and flossing twice a day is vital to maintaining a fully-functional smile in between dental visits. 

Undergoing professional cleanings at our office every six months helps remove harmful plaque buildup, which prevents decay. Neglecting cleanings is one of the common causes of tooth decay and other severe oral health complications like periodontal disease. Prolonged calculus development can be difficult to eliminate by simple at-home brushing and flossing. Luckily, our Destrehan team has the skill to address these concerns effectively with our detailed, yet gentle hygiene treatments.  

Additionally, we carefully examine gum pockets to determine that your gum-tissue is healthy with no signs of periodontal issues. If gum infection is detected, more advanced treatments such as scaling and root planing will be recommended.
