A preventive program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist and dental staff to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions. Preventive care includes a number of treatments, including:
- Dental exams and cleanings
- Dental X-rays
- Oral cancer exam
- Home care
Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet. It is continued in the dental office by the efforts of your dentist and dental hygienist to promote, restore and maintain your oral health.
Prevention also includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and X-rays. Dental sealants and fluoride treatments are also great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth.
Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems, such as tooth decay and periodontal disease, and is the key to having a healthy, confident, beautiful smile. We recommend that you visit our office every six months for a routine dental cleanings and exam, as this will allow our dentist and team to keep your mouth clean, monitor your oral health and provide any treatments that you may need promptly.
