Proper preventive dentistry and oral health care can help prevent cavities and gum disease, keeping your smile happy and healthy and saving you time and money.
Considering that oral health is linked to overall health, preventive dentistry is important to your overall well being. Oral diseases can interfere with eating, speaking, daily activities and self-esteem. In children, severe decay can affect growth and development. Preventive dentistry can result in less extensive – and less expensive – treatment for any dental conditions that may develop, and help you keep your natural teeth for a lifetime.
Dental cleanings and screenings are recommended every six months to remove dental plaque and stains you're unable to remove yourself, as well as to check for signs of tooth decay.
