Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet. It is continued in the dental office through regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Sealants and remineralization are also great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth from tooth decay and prevent the need for fillings, root canals, or even tooth replacement.
Sometimes catching a dental condition early is the next best thing to preventing it entirely. For example, if you come in for dental exams every 6 months as recommended by the American Dental Association, we may be able to identify a minor gum disease infection and treat it before you even begin to feel the symptoms.
Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident, beautiful smile. Schedule your appointment for preventative care with Partners In Dental Health today and get a better shot at enjoying healthy teeth for the rest of your life.
