Preventing dental problems is much easier (and cheaper) than treating issues as they occur. In essence, preventive dentistry is about being proactive, as opposed to reactive. It includes brushing, flossing, maintaining a healthy diet, and visiting with your dentist regularly.Routine exams and dental cleanings will ensure your teeth remain healthy and you avoid costlier dental treatments such as periodontal therapy, tooth extractions, root canals, fillings and other restorative dental procedures.
It is recommended that everyone schedule at least two cleanings a year. However, this number will vary depending on your current health and susceptibility to dental disease. Consult with one of our dentists to determine the frequency of visits that is right for you.
Cleaning your teeth and flossing every day, while important, is only part of a successful routine.
