Preventing dental problems involves complete cooperation between the patient, the dentist and the dental staff. When that happens, it’s possible to preserve as much natural dental structure as possible and prevent the onset, progression and recurrence of dental conditions and diseases.
This starts at home with a balanced diet and sensible oral hygiene. The dentist then assists in the effort by helping promote oral health to you and maintaining and restoring your mouth.
Prevention involves regular dental exams and cleanings as well as x-rays and other diagnostic procedures. Sealants and other preventative treatments may be recommended too. These things help prevent costly, debilitating and painful problems and are the key to a confident and healthy smile that’s beautiful too.
