Preventing Dental Health Issues
By providing consistent exams, we identify and treat an issue, such as periodontal disease or tooth decay, before it becomes a problem that requires more extensive restorative treatment, like dental fillings or crowns. Preventive exams can also pinpoint undiagnosed problems that cause discomfort, such as teeth grinding (bruxism) and TMJ discomfort.
What Is Preventive Dentistry?
Preventive dentistry is a multi-faceted treatment method. As a dental team, we provide you with the professional cleaning, examination, and attention necessary to keep your mouth in tip-top shape. However, you are just as integral to maintaining healthy teeth and gums with regular at-home care, including twice-daily brushing and flossing, is vital. Rest assured that our team will provide you with comprehensive in-office maintenance while explaining exactly what you need to do at home for easy, effective care 24/7. The main components of preventive dentistry include:
- Home care
- Dental exams and cleanings
- Bruxism treatment
- TMJ Disorder treatment
- Sleep apnea treatment
- Snoring treatment
- Oral cancer screenings
Am I a Good Candidate?
Everyone is a good candidate for preventive dentistry. Even if you already suffer from an oral health condition, preventive dentistry can help you avoid a reoccurrence of trouble and maintain your smile’s health, beauty, and function.
