Preventive dentistry doesn’t start here in our office, it starts with you at home daily. Practicing good oral hygiene and eating a balanced diet goes a long way to promote dental health. The process of preventive dentistry is continued in our dental office as we monitor, maintain, and restore your oral health.
Preventive dentistry includes regular check-ins (We recommend twice a year) which include: a dental exam, x-rays, and cleanings.
We promote preventive dentistry because we want you to avoid serious, painful, and costly dental problems. Your healthy, beautiful smile is what makes us smile!
What is Preventive Dentistry? Preventive dentistry is the practice of taking care of your teeth, gums, and mouth to keep them healthy. Taking care of your oral health helps prevent cavities, gum disease, and damage to your teeth, gums, and bones. Your oral health directly influences the health of your body as a whole because your mouth is full of harmful bacteria. In addition to problems in your mouth, poor oral care may be linked to other health problems such as: Diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, cancer, and respiratory disease.
Taking care of your oral health regularly can also save you money in the long run with costs associated with more serious dental issues. We’d love to discuss with you and your children how you can best apply preventive dentistry in your daily lives. Please feel free to call us or set an appointment to schedule a visit below. We look forward to helping you maintain and improve your oral health!
