Preventative Dentistry

Preventative Dentistry

Good oral health enhances our ability to speak, smile, eat, and show our emotions through facial expressions. Preventive oral habits, such as regular dental care and good oral hygiene, developed early in life can lead to better overall health throughout a person’s life.

Preventive Dentistry keeps teeth clean at any age. It is the oral care that involves education, treatment and practice of maintaining your teeth and gums. From daily brushing to annual dental cleanings, these tasks are designed to avoid gum disease, cavities, and enamel wear, which often lead to sensitivity.

Oral health starts with you. Brushing and flossing after each meal or at least twice a day can protect you from tooth decay and gum disease caused by plaque. Because plaque starts forming on your teeth right after eating, the longer you wait to brush and floss, the harder it is to remove. Flossing is the best way to prevent plaque from forming between your teeth and below your gum line, where decay often begins.

Without proper brushing and flossing, you can develop bleeding gums and eventually gingivitis. Gingivitis can eventually worsen to gum disease. Did you know that disease of the mouth can affect the rest of your body? That why it’s especially important to maintain good oral health through daily dental hygiene practices. When those practices aren’t enough there are other procedures we offer that can help.
