You might suddenly have a thought about your smile, particularly if it has been a while since your last dental care visit. “Do I qualify for preventive dentistry?” you might think to yourself. Your Temecula dentist understands that when your smile isn’t in the best of health or when you have been away from a dental practice for a year or longer, you might start to feel somewhat intimidated or embarrassed. The good news is, we are always glad to take your call and schedule your cleaning and checkup. As for the specifics, take our quiz to find out more about your candidacy.

Quiz Questions: True or False?

  1. True or False: If you have been away from dental care for a very long time, preventive dentistry isn’t a good place to start.
  2. True or False: If you are someone who consistently cares for your smile and you can say that you follow rules exactly, then you probably don’t qualify for preventive care with your Temecula dentist because you don’t really need it.
  3. True or False: When we talk about preventive measures, we’re only discussing the part of care you receive from our practice.

Quiz Answers

  1. False. Preventive dentistry is the perfect place to begin. This will allow us to clean your smile and to take a detailed observation at what’s happening with your smile. We may then suggest additional treatments to make improvements (if necessary).
  2. False. Good, complete prevention includes not only your care that you provide for yourself but also that which your Temecula dentist provides during visits (which you need even if your smile seems immaculate).
  3. False. Prevention is a term we use to refer to the complete list of efforts you make to protect your smile and to keep problems from developing. This includes not only brushing and flossing but also your approach at avoiding damaging things that can hurt your smile. It also refers to the professional services that we offer for your oral health.
