A preventive program is a cooperative effort between you and our office to preserve your natural teeth and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progression and recurrence of dental diseases and related oral conditions.
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. Sealants and fluoride are also great preventative treatments that help protect your teeth.
Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident, beautiful smile.
