Preventive Dentistry and Oral HygieneGood oral health contributes to your overall health and well being. A preventive program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental staff to preserve the natural dentition and supporting oral structures by preventing the onset, progression, and recurrence of dental diseases. Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident, beautiful smile.
Preventing dental disease starts at home with good dental hygiene and a balanced diet. It is continued in the dental office by the efforts of your dentist to promote, restore, and maintain your oral health. We care about our patients, so we offer comprehensive dental exams and professional dental cleanings. At your checkup, the dentist will examine your soft tissues for gum disease and oral cancer. The dentist will also inspect each tooth for cracks and signs of decay, as well as worn dental work. Early detection and preventive care are vital to your oral health. We want to help you maintain healthy gums and teeth that will last you a lifetime.
Prevention also includes regular dental exams, dental cleanings, and necessary dental x-rays. Dental sealants and fluoride treatments are effective preventive treatments that can be utilized to help protect the teeth. For individuals highly susceptible to dental decay we may advocate a special caries reduction protocol.
