How does a Dentist Prevent Dental Problems?
Preventive dentistry encompasses any dental services that allow our dentist to prevent, diagnose and treat oral health problems. Preventive dentistry services include:
These treatments and procedures prevent cavities, gum disease, and possible tooth loss. Providing your regular dental care allows our dentist to identify your unique dental needs and tailor treatment to those needs. We can also discuss your goals for your oral health and your smile, and develop a long-term treatment plan based on your expected outcome.
Your Role in Preventive Dental Care
Our dentist provides most of the care you need to prevent gum disease and tooth problems, but there is also another side to preventive dentistry that must be owned by the patient. To maintain good oral health and keep your teeth and gums clean in between dental appointments, you should:
- Brush your teeth at least twice a day
- Floss your teeth once a day
- Call our dentist if you notice any signs of problems
Don’t ignore any possible indicators of dental problems, such as tooth pain or swollen, tender gums. Addressing problems right away is one of the most effective ways to prevent major dental problems. We provide emergency dentistry services, so you can get prompt care if you notice unusual tooth or gum symptoms.
Our dentist is committed to achieving optimum oral health for each of our patients, and prevention plays a critical role in oral health. We provide the personalized care you need to enjoy lasting teeth and gum health.
