A focus on preventive dentistry helps you maintain the highest standard of oral health while limiting dental expenditures. At home, prevention may include brushing and flossing twice a day. But many strategies and oral health aids exist that may fit your situation even better. Often patients are surprised to learn that a particular toothpaste, rinse, or specialized toothpick will serve them best and make all the difference in their efforts. Regular dental exams and cleanings prove vital in preventing decay and gum disease as you keep daily habits consistent.
Your diet plays a critical role in oral health as well. Acidic foods and drinks can accelerate deterioration of your teeth, and certain foods can enhance the health of your supporting jawbone and gums. Our team believes in bringing your efforts and ours into balance for optimum health.
We can help customize solutions that enhance your daily efforts, often turning frustration into big smiles at the healthy changes that occur.
Teeth cleaning involves the removal of dental plaque from teeth with the intention of preventing cavities, gingivitis, and periodontal disease. In addition to routinely cleaning your own teeth by brushing twice a day and flossing once per day, you should have your teeth cleaned professionally every 3 ,4, or 6 months depending on your periodontal (gum) condition. With a regular preventive schedule, we can remove the bacterial deposits that lead to dental disease.
We will also monitor for silent problems, such as tooth decay or gum disease before they become major issues.
