Preventive Dental Care

Some people tend to think of the dentist when they are faced with a tooth problem. However, the best way to maintain a healthy smile is to prevent dental problems. We encourage educating all our patients on the importance of maintenance and prevention to conserve the teeth and avoid major dental work.

Maintenance and prevention consists of:

  • Dental Check-ups
  • Radiographs (X-rays)
  • Cleanings
  • Head and neck exams
  • Oral cancer screenings
  • Home care review
  • Sealants/preventive resin restorations
  • Nutrition

Keeping up with your oral health will avoid risks that might include gum disease, cavities, oral cancer, and many other general health-related conditions that originate in the mouth. Some studies have even shown a relationship between gum disease and heart disease.

Once you have completed all the dental work needed and you have achieved a stable, functional, and beautiful smile, we proceed with maintenance and prevention for a long-lasting healthy smile. We will establish a recall system that will fit your needs. Most people find that maintaining oral health saves both time and money in the long run.
