Preventive Dental Care
Preventive dentistry is dental care that helps maintain good oral health. It’s a combination of regular dental check-ups along with developing good habits like brushing and flossing. Taking care of your teeth starts early in childhood and extends throughout the course of your life.
We recommend regular dental exams and cleanings of at least 6 month intervals. Early detection of lesions allows early and minimally invasive treatment, such as restorations for caries. The most important part of preventive care is at-home care.
This includes brushing your teeth twice daily using fluoride toothpaste, regular flossing and a healthy diet. Visit our dentists to learn optimal home care techniques. With good dental hygiene, you reduce your risk of getting dental problems and related secondary health issues.
