Preventive Dental CareThe goal of preventive care is to protect your smile from damage caused by tooth decay, periodontal disease (gum disease), and other damaging dental conditions. Preventive dentistry works to prevent these diseases before they cause damage that requires repair. We offer a number of preventive dental treatments to help you keep your smile in the best possible health.
Dental Cleanings, Exams and X-rays
Checkups are recommended every 6 months for a healthy mouth, and every 3-4 months for those with periodontal disease. Examinations should occur at least once a year, depending on your past history of cavities. X-rays should be taken between every 6 months to 3 years depending on your past history of restorations and how regularly you visit the dentist for exams.
Gum disease occurs when plaque builds up below the gum line and starts to pull the gums away from the roots of the teeth. It has been linked to diabetes and heart disease.
Brushing & Flossing
Your mouth performs many essential functions. It allows you to eat, speak, and smile confidently. Maintaining your oral health is essential for preventing serious issues like cavities and gum disease, and allowing your mouth to function properly.
Oral Cancer Screening
Regular visits to your dentist can improve the chances that any suspicious changes in your oral health will be caught early, at a time when cancer can be treated more easily.
Holistic medicine believes that your body is a comprehensive unit, not just the sum of its parts. That means that when you come to our office complaining of tooth pain, we will regard you as a person and not just an infected tooth or a bleeding gum.
