A preventive program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental staff to preserve your teeth and protect the surrounding gums and bone. This is done by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of different dental diseases.
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.
When your teeth and gums are in a healthy state it is our priority to keep them that way.
Prevention also includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Sealants and fluoride are also great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth.
Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident, beautiful smile.
