Benefits of Preventive Dentistry

As the foundation of flourishing oral health, preventive dentistry is the best way we can care for our teeth and gums! Paired with a stellar at-home brushing and flossing routine, regular exams and cleanings support a healthy smile and help catch any dental issues before they grow into large, costly problems. By treating your teeth and gums to preventive care, you can feel confident about your oral health and enjoy a lifetime of strong smiles.

Cleaning & Hygiene

Routine cleanings performed by your dentist or dental hygienist are key to maximizing a healthy, sparkling smile. We recommend treating your teeth and gums to a thorough, professional cleaning every six months to carefully polish away plaque, tartar, and harmful, hard-to-reach bacteria.

The daily dental habits we build at home are equally important! To keep your oral hygiene bright and beautiful, be sure to brush twice a day for two minutes each time using a pea-sized amount of fluoride-based toothpaste. For healthy gums, gently floss at least once per day to remove food particles, plaque, and bacteria that can’t be reached by your toothbrush alone.

Periodontal Care

Periodontal care is an essential facet of preventive dentistry for patients struggling with gum disease. “Gingivitis” is the earliest stage of gum disease, and can be reversed with specialized deep cleanings. Along with proper at-home oral hygiene, early prevention and treatment of gum disease with periodontal care is the best way to keep gingivitis under control.

Patients who are experiencing more advanced stages of gum disease can maintain their oral health with deep cleanings scheduled every 3 months. By taking action, regular periodontal care can stop the progression of gum disease in its tracks, saving your smile and avoiding extensive dental work.
