Preventive care is essential in the longtime health of your smile and protecting your smile from damage caused by tooth decay, periodontal (gum) disease and other damaging conditions. Preventive care works to prevent these diseases before they can cause any lasting damage to your smile. Our dentist and team provide a variety of services designed with the lasting health of your smile in mind, including regular dental checkups and dental sealants. We recommend you visit our office regularly so we can check for and treat any developing dental conditions. This allows us to treat you before you sustain any damage to your teeth.
Preventive care is not limited to treatment in our office; you can take steps at home to protect your smile from decay and damage. These steps include:
- Brush and floss your teeth every day. You should brush at least twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush, and you should floss every night before bed.
- Keep a healthy diet, and avoid eating foods that are sugary or acidic
Our dentist and team may also recommend dental sealants or fluoride treatment to prevent disease and protect against decay. To learn more about preventive care and set an appointment, please call us today!
