Oral health affects general health. Oral problems can interfere with eating, speaking and your self-esteem. A healthy smile keeps you on track and positively impacts confidence. Not to mention, preventative dentistry is less extensive and less expensive than dental care.
Teeth cleaning and polishing treatment is part of your preventative program and should be done by our dentist every six months. We use special paste to polish teeth and remove any plaque build up. It is important for parents and their children to know proper brushing and flossing techniques. Our dentist and friendly team will demonstrate this at your appointment.
PREVENTATIVE DENTISTRY INVOLVES:
- Establishing a “dental home”
- Brushing and flossing daily
- A balanced, healthy diet
- Fluoride treatments, when necessary
- Routine dental visits
- Monitoring oral health & development
- Dental sealants
- Oral health education
- Protection against injuries
