Prevention

  • A preventative program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental staff to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures.

  • 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 preventive treatments that help protect the teeth.

  • Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident, and beautiful smile.
