Preventative General Dental Care
At Davis Gribble Hollowwa Dental, we provide comprehensive general dentistry that includes preventative care to help you maintain a healthy and attractive smile.
The Benefits of Preventative Dentistry
Preventative dental care involves controlling bacteria in your mouth and diagnosing and treating gum disease or tooth decay early. Early detection and treatment of dental concerns has health and financial benefits, including:
- Less pain
- Teeth cleaning is a virtually pain-free procedure. For most patients, there is no need for numbing or sedation before our dental hygienists can remove built-up plaque and tartar, unlike more invasive treatments for progressive decay like root canal therapy or tooth extractions.
- Better overall health
- Strong teeth and jaw bones allow you to bite and chew a variety of foods to maintain proper nutrition. Healthy gums also decrease the risk for other health concerns like cardiovascular disease and Alzheimer’s disease as well as help manage blood glucose levels.
- Less expense
- Regular checkups and early interventions that help you keep your natural teeth are significantly less expensive than treatments to replace teeth or address progressing gum disease. Many dental benefit plans fully cover preventative dental care, too, so there’s often no out-of-pocket expense.
Keeping teeth and gums healthy is as easy as seeing your Albuquerque general dentist.

We Offer More than Preventative Dental Procedures
To the staff at Davis Gribble Hollowwa Dental, preventative dentistry means more than preventing oral health problems. We do what we can to prevent anxiety. Our rooms are equipped with televisions to help entertain and distract our patients from the noise of dental procedures, and we offer nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation for those with more acute dental phobia.
Our general dentists also prevent falling behind the times by continuing their education. We equip our office with the latest technology and offer the most advanced dental procedures so that we can confidently say that we are Albuquerque’s modern family dentists!
