The goal of preventive care is to protect your smile from damage caused by tooth decay, periodontal (gum) disease and other damaging dental conditions. Preventive care includes professional treatments that you receive in our office as well as your oral hygiene routine at home. We recommend that you visit our dentist and team every six months to receive regular cleanings and exams and any other preventive treatments you may need. Our dentist may recommend a more frequent schedule of visits if necessary. During these appointments we will review your oral hygiene with you and may make recommendations on ways you can improve your home care routine through brushing, flossing, using mouthrinses and maintaining a balanced diet.
Your regular dental visits also give our dentist the opportunity to check for signs of gum disease. Gum disease can be incredibly damaging to your oral and overall health, which makes visiting our office regularly very important. By diagnosing gum disease in the early stages of development, our dentist can provide treatment before any significant damage occurs. We offer a number of treatments for gum disease and will work with you to help improve your oral health and halt the disease from spreading.
