Like all dentists, we, at Cedarwood Dental Care, understand that it’s much better to stop oral problems before they happen instead of repairing damaged teeth. When you take a preventive approach to your oral health you save time and money in the long run. This is why we place such an emphasis on preventive dentistry and education.
What is Preventive Dentistry?
This area of dentistry focuses on procedures and treatments that prevent oral health problems. Dental disease affects the rest of the body, however, this disease is preventable with healthy oral hygiene habits and regular dental check-ups. Some examples of preventive dentistry procedures and treatments are:
- Dental exams
- Professional dental cleanings (prophylaxis)
- Fluoride treatments
- Gum disease examinations
While regular brushing and flossing are essential for optimal oral health, keeping regular dental appointments is the most effective way to prevent oral diseases.
