The goal of preventive care is to protect your teeth and smile from being damaged by tooth decay, gum disease, or other damaging dental conditions. Preventive dentistry works to stop these diseases from developing, or to halt them before they can cause damage requiring repair. Our practice offers several preventive treatments, including dental sealants, fluoride treatments, and regular dental cleanings and exams.
We also promote good oral hygiene, and will work with you to make sure that you know the best ways to take care of your teeth at home. Good oral hygiene includes:
- Brushing and flossing your teeth daily. You should brush at least twice a day, or after every meal, and floss at least once a day. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush. We also recommend that you use a fluoridated toothpaste.
- Visit our dentist at least twice each year for a routine dental cleaning and exam.
- Maintain a balanced, healthy diet. Limit the amount of sugary and acidic foods and beverages you consume.
- When you visit our office, ask our dentist about sealants and fluoride. These preventive treatments are often a great help in maintaining a healthy smile.
