An Overview of Preventive Dental Care
Preventive dentistry helps maintain good oral health through regular dental exams and professional advice regarding proper brushing, flossing and eating habits. Fluoride treatments are also a common preventive tool to avoid teeth decay.
The goal of preventive care is to avoid needing treatments in the long run (such as filling and extractions), by keeping your mouth healthy. The two most common issues we want to prevent are decay and gum disease.
Everyone should take preventive care to heart. From babies to seniors, preventive dentistry and care is important for every individual’s overall health.
