While we are equipped and prepared to handle situations involving treatment for disease, decay, or damage to your mouth, we believe as a practice that preventing such issues from occurring in the first place is wiser in the long-run.
One of the best things we can do for you as one of our patients is provide you with preventative dentistry options. Preventative dentistry is the practice of maintaining good oral health—something we focus on a lot with general dentistry as well.
Oral Health and Overall Health
The state of your oral health can make a huge impact on your overall health. Severe cases of oral bacteria and infection have been known to spread throughout the rest of the body. Keeping your teeth clean and free of cavities and gum disease is vital to preventing the spread of said disease to the rest of your body.
Luckily, keeping your teeth and gums healthy doesn’t require that you follow a complicated series of steps. The best way to prevent the onset of serious disease in your mouth is to start by practicing good oral cleaning in your home. Floss and brush your teeth regularly, and you’ll be well on your way to healthier teeth and gums.
Dental Exams and Cleanings
Keeping up with your cleaning routine at home is one very necessary step in the two-step process for preventative dentistry. The second step involves regular dental exams and cleanings.
When you schedule bi-yearly appointments with us, our team will thoroughly check your mouth, teeth, and gums for signs of infection. We’ll provide treatment for any issues we see, and we’ll do a deep clean of your teeth.
Our dental exams and cleanings paired with your at-home brushing and flossing will reduce the likelihood of serious diseases or decay forming.
