You may think that brushing and flossing every day is all it takes to maintain a healthy, beautiful smile. You are definitely onto something – daily hygiene is a significant factor in enjoying excellent oral health but it is only one part of the equation. Preventive care provided by dental professionals is the other contributing factor that allows you to avoid problems before they develop for a lovely, healthy smile for years to come.

You Can Stop Cavities Before They Start

One of the leading causes of oral diseases, like tooth decay, is plaque. This sticky substance adheres to your teeth every day. Brushing and flossing removes some of it. However, you simply cannot thoroughly remove dental plaque on your own. By visiting your dentist every six months for a cleaning, your chances of avoiding cavities – and dental fillings – greatly increases.

You Can Protect Your Children’s Teeth

Your main priority in life is protecting your child, which includes ensuring that adorable smile remains healthy. Preventive care for children includes treatments that protect developing teeth, so they become strong while avoiding cavity development. We offer sealants, which create a barrier over hard-to-reach teeth to protect them from plaque. Fluoride treatments are also beneficial, strengthening teeth and protecting them from tooth decay.

You Can Stop Problems In Their Tracks

Visiting your dentist once every six months for a dental checkup is to your advantage. Your dental team has the knowledge and advanced technology to catch abnormal changes in your mouth before you have any idea that something is wrong. Early detection of oral concerns, from oral cancer to tooth decay, greatly increases treatment success rates, so you can quickly return to optimal oral health and comfort.
