Preventive Care

We provide preventive care for patients of all ages. As soon as your child gets their first tooth, preventive dental care can begin. Preventive dental care is what will keep your teeth healthy throughout the course of your life. Good oral health can impact your general health as well.  Preventive dental visits may include: regular oral exams, teeth cleaning and routine x-rays.

What are the benefits of preventive dentistry?

  • Lowers your risk for developing tooth decay, gum disease, and more serious dental problems.

  • Helps promote good oral hygiene habits, such as brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing.

  • Early identification of dental problems may help minimize treatment and cost.

  • Enables your dentist to do a full exam of your mouth, jaw, neck, etc. to identify any related problems.

  • Helps reduce dental problems related to some chronic medical conditions. Diabetes, osteoporosis, certain cancers, and eating disorders can all have an effect on dental and oral health.
