The Miami dental office of Dr. Jorge Abril prides itself at being a leading family dental practice that offers exceptional general dental care along with leading edge cosmetic dental services. At Abril Dental, preventive dental care is emphasized for all of Dr. Abril’s patients. The friendly staff works with patients to teach that the goal of preventive dentistry is to prevent the onset of dental disease including dental decay and gum disease.
If you are a new patient, your first oral examination at the Miami dental office will establish a baseline measure of your oral health and provide vital information as we work with you to chart a course for maintaining a beautiful and healthy smile. Dr. Abril will go over your medical and dental histories, making special note of any of your dental concerns as well as any symptoms you may have. This is followed by a comprehensive examination which includes an oral cancer screening, periodontal evaluation, an analysis of your bite, a check of your temporomandibular joint, a detailed examination of your teeth, their supporting structures, and the complete orofacial area. If the examination requires diagnostic dental films, they will be taken at this time. A thorough professional cleaning will also be performed to remove any plaque and tartar that can cause dental decay or gum disease.
Good oral hygiene is essential for your dental health and it is important to your overall health and well being. Our comprehensive dental hygiene program is designed to preserve your teeth and the supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental disease. As part of our preventive program, your current home care practices will be reviewed. Following that, we will make recommendations as to what areas require improvements, and instruct you in the proper methods of brushing and flossing. Since our care is personalized, additional preventive services may be indicated for individual patients. An integral part of our preventive program for pediatric patients includes periodic fluoride treatments and the application of dental sealants.
