Preventative Oral Health

Solve the problem, before it Starts!

Preventing tooth decay and gum disease and is much less expensive than treating the problems after they arise. Many people take their oral health for granted, but is an essential part of our everyday lives. Good oral health not only enhances our ability to speak, smile, and kiss; it also allows us to convey a world of feelings and emotions through our facial expressions.

Woman at the Dentist being ExaminedKeeping you smiling is our job! Our preventative dental services can keep you smiling and help prevent both tooth decay and gum disease. We provide routine cleanings, flouride treatments, and sealants for our patients.

Call us today to schedule a complimentary consultation.

The ADA (American Dental Association) recommends the following for good oral hygiene:
  • Brush your teeth twice a day with an ADA-accepted fluoride toothpaste.
  • Replace your toothbrush every three or four months, or sooner if the bristles are frayed. A worn toothbrush won't do a good job of cleaning your teeth.
  • Clean between teeth daily with floss or an interdental cleaner. Decay–causing bacteria still linger between teeth where toothbrush bristles can’t reach. This helps remove plaque and food particles from between the teeth and under the gum line.
  • Eat a balanced diet and limit between-meal snacks.
  • Visit your dentist regularly for professional cleanings and oral exams.

 

 Tooth decay (cavities) is a common problem for people of all ages. For children, untreated cavities can cause pain, dysfunction, absence from school, difficulty concentrating on learning, and poor appearance—problems that greatly affect quality of life and ability to succeed.

 Periodontal (gum) disease is an infection caused by bacteria under the gum tissue that begin to destroy the gums and bone. Teeth become loose, chewing becomes difficult, and teeth may have to be extracted. Gum disease may also be related to damage elsewhere in the body; recent studies point to associations between such oral infections and diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and preterm, low-weight births. Research is underway to further examine these connections.
