What Is Preventive Dentistry?

Preventive dentistry includes services and treatments that help you avoid oral health complications. The majority of prevention includes thoroughly removing plaque and calculus, referred to as biofilm, from your teeth. Preventive dentistry also focuses on detecting problems like cavities, gum deisease and oral cancer in their earliest stages. The sooner we detect problems, the better our chances at providing successful treatments.

Protect Your Smile With Preventive Care

Part of ensuring oral health depends on good home hygiene habits, including brushing and flossing. However, to fully protect your mouth against problems like cavities and gum disease, regular trips to the dentist are suggested.

Why Should I Consider Preventive Care?

The best way to maintain a healthy smile is by visiting the dentist once every three to six months, depending on your needs. Rather than waiting for an illness to develop, your cleanings and checkups will assist you in avoiding these issues. Preventing problems before they occur promotes the long-term health of your teeth and gums. Consider the following benefits of preventive dentistry:

  • The sooner you begin maintaining healthy teeth, the longer your natural teeth will remain in excellent condition
  • You can avoid costly procedures and moments of discomfort by preventing problems before they have the chance to develop
  • The health of your entire body depends partially on a healthy mouth – preventive care promotes holistic wellbeing
  • If a change occurs, we can quickly recognize symptoms and prescribe an effective solution
