Excellent Preventative Dentistry Care in Cleveland, Ohio

Preventative dentistry is the cornerstone of our practice in Cleveland, Ohio.  Together, you and the dedicated staff at Ryba Dentistry work toward the shared goal of excellent oral health. With proper regular preventative care, we can help you maintain your healthy smile for years to come. Our clean, modern office is designed for your overall comfort. Our dentists and hygienists listen carefully to each patient, making sure your dental care experience is positive. Whether you're coming in for a regular checkup, or you have a specific issue with your teeth, our hospitality will help you feel relaxed.


Preventative Dentistry is Vital to Your Oral Health

Our preventative dentistry services help prevent oral problems such as cavities, infections, and gum disease. When you receive regular preventative dental care, you are at a lower risk of suffering from major dental problems because your dentist will be able to spot problems early. Early identification of cavities, gum disease, and other issues minimizes the amount of treatment needed and reduces the cost of your dental care.


As well as the oral health benefits of getting regular dental care, you get the added benefit of encouragement in your own oral hygiene habits. We give you great advice on how to better care for your teeth and gums. Proper home care and regular preventative dental procedures really do prevent most dental issues.


Preventative Dental Services Offered at Ryba Dentistry

Our full range of preventative dental services include:


  • Dental cleanings. Our professional staff gently cleans your teeth, removing plaque and tartar that have built up since the last cleaning. You'll get the deep-clean feeling of a professionally-cleaned mouth.

  • Dental exam. During the oral exam, the dentist will check for cavities, and you'll also receive an oral cancer screening and a gum disease screening.

  • X-Rays. X-rays help us better determine the overall health of your teeth. With an X-ray we can see what is happening beneath the surface of your gums and inside your teeth.

  • Fluoride treatments. These treatments are a quick and simple way to strengthen your teeth and prevent decay.

  • Sealants. Dental sealants are a coating applied to the large molars in the back of your mouth. They help prevent cavities in those deep grooves that easily trap food.

  • Night Guards. Occlusal guards protect teeth from damage caused by grinding your teeth in your sleep. 


Oral Health Care Begins at Home

Home dental care is just as important as regular preventative care at the dentist's office. An excellent oral hygiene routine includes brushing twice a day, flossing at least once a day, and using a fluoride mouth rinse for one minute before bedtime.  Additionally, biannual visits to the dentist for a professional teeth cleaning can help you keep your smile in tip-top shape.


Why Preventative Dental Care is Important

Going to the dentist for preventative care every six months keeps your mouth healthy and helps identify problems early. Without those services, other problems are likely to develop requiring more advanced restorative dental procedures in the future, like fillings and dental crowns. Restorative dental procedures can be costly and take more time than a regular checkup.
