Preventive Dentistry

In our dental practice, we stress preventive dentistry, which can help eliminate the need for restorative dentistry.

We believe that there are four cornerstones of preventive dentistry.

Vigilant homecare: Your attention to brushing and flossing at home helps prevent tooth decay and gum disease.

Cleanings and exams: As meticulous as you might be with your dental home care, however, it’s still important to come in for regular cleanings and exams. A professional dental cleaning helps remove the plaque that persists despite your best efforts at home. And a dental exam can help catch dental problems at their earliest stages, when treatment is easier and less expensive.

Part of our preventative measures with cleanings now consist of removing large amounts of bacteria with a diode laser. Using the laser prior to your dental cleaning allows us to remove bacteria and reduce the bacterial flow into your bloodstream.

Education and attention: Every time you come into our office, we educate you on what you can do to regain and maintain optimal dental health. As skilled as we are in the detection and treatment of dental disease, we don’t know your body like you do. If you pay attention to changes in your dental health and call our office or come in at the first sign of distress, we can help you regain your health more quickly.

Commitment to good dental health: Taking care of yourself requires a commitment of time and money, and the benefits of this commitment can be a beautiful, natural smile that lasts a lifetime.
