How much attention do you put on general dentistry and the health of your teeth? A preventive program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental staff to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions.
Regular Attention To Your Teeth Is Important – Get Your Exam Now!
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. You needn’t always be thinking in terms of large things that need to be done, and a focus on those areas that general dentistry deals with is going to help prevent a lot of these more serious conditions from occurring.
Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident, beautiful smile.
