Taking care of your teeth with proper dental care both at home and at our Cincinnati dental office will not only keep your mouth healthy but will hopefully decrease your likelihood of needing extensive dental care. Cavities, gum disease, decay, and other kinds of oral disease can become serious if neglected. That is why at Mary Ellen Wynn, DDS, we believe prevention is the best medicine.
The purpose of preventative care is to protect your mouth from tooth decay, gum disease, and other problems before they have a chance to develop in the first place. Preventative care will keep your teeth and gums healthy and will proactively treat any issues that arise before they have a chance to escalate to a serious level. Dr. Wynn and her team are committed to providing you with knowledge and tools to protect your smile!
Preventative dental care happens on a daily basis, between your visits with us. Brushing your teeth twice each day and flossing them before you go to bed each night is critical to maintaining a healthy mouth. An added bonus to establishing this healthy habit for your life is a more efficient dental hygiene appointment — the other critical preventative step. Your hygienist won’t have to work as hard to scrape the plaque and tartar away if you keep it at bay on a daily basis!
What does preventative dentistry involve?
Preventative dentistry refers to any procedure or action that is designed to protect your oral health and prevent certain dental problems from developing.
At Mary Ellen Wynn, DDS, our preventative treatment begins with an examination and dental cleaning. Coming in regularly for cleanings can help our team keep your mouth in tip-top condition while looking for signs of any deeper problems. Detecting and treating issues early can save you from a great deal of pain and inconvenience down the road.
In addition to regular cleanings and examinations, we also offer:
- Digital X-rays
- Periodontal exams
- Dental sealants
- Fluoride treatments
- Oral cancer screenings
- Orthodontic evaluation
- Personalized hygiene instructions
During your examination, Dr. Wynn and her team will take steps to educate you about potential health problems and the importance of proper oral hygiene. Our team is happy to answer any questions or address any concerns you may have about your health, hygiene, and treatment options.

Dr. Mary Ellen Wynn’s dental practice in the Western Hills area is by far the best dentist I have visited. My first appointment was 15+ years ago when she took me in for an urgent cracked tooth. Service was excellent and professional. My family continues to visit on a regular basis.
Dr. Wynn and her staff are exceptional in their friendliness, knowledge and help. They all make visiting the dentist a delightful experience. Dr. Wynn is the best dentist I’ve encountered in all my life and would recommend her services to anyone, especially those who are afraid of going to the dentist.
My mother and I have been patients of Dr. Wynn’s for approximately ten years. Both of us have been impressed by her professionalism and expertise, and not to mention her fantastic staff. We’ve gone to her for dental needs far beyond routine cleanings, and have been extremely satisfied.
My childhood experience with a dentist was best described as grim. It led me to neglect my dental health. Teeth that been improperly drilled and filled had to be pulled. My husband found Dr. Wynn and shortly thereafter, so did I. The experience has changed my outlook on dentists.
