We practice preventive dentistry to ensure the health of our patient’s teeth and gums to avoid cavities and gum disease, enamel wear, and more. Good preventive care will significantly reduce the risk of getting cavities, gingivitis, and periodontitis. As if that wasn’t enough, preventive dental care can also help strengthen your teeth. For example, our fluoride treatments help your teeth reabsorb helpful minerals like phosphate and calcium. These minerals act as shields against acid and can even stop tooth decay from progressing. Without proper preventive dentistry, problems can go unnoticed. When we catch a dental problem early, it’s much easier to solve and treat.
Periodontitis is a cascade of problems that occur when gingivitis is left untreated. Several factors work together to cause gum disease to worsen and lead to significant bone loss and loose teeth. Research shows a direct correlation between periodontal disease and heart disease, increased risk of infection in people who have diabetes and low birth weight babies. These health issues can be controlled by good preventive care.
Preventive dental services includes twice-yearly scheduled checkups to maintain and care for your teeth, to help avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear and more serious dental problems. We inspect your teeth and gums, perform a dental exam and dental cleaning, and take care of any problem areas before they become more serious.
