Preventative Care

What is preventive dental care?

Screen Shot 2013-10-18 at 10.57.02 AMPreventive dental care is all the things you do (or should do) to take care of your teeth and gums: brushing, flossing, eating a healthy diet and seeing your dentist regularly to help avoid dental disease.

Why is preventive dental care important?

When it comes to the health of your teeth and gums, preventive dental care is smart. Brushing and flossing help to remove plaque from the surfaces and in between teeth and can keep your teeth looking and feeling clean. A healthy diet (one low in sugar and other refined carbohydrates) helps keep your whole body, including your teeth and gums, in good shape, and routine dental exams and regular cleanings may help prevent the incidence of higher-cost treatments such as periodontal surgery, root canals, extractions and fillings. After all, early detection and prevention are key to minimizing your need for more serious dental treatment.

How often should I see my dentist?

There are no clear guidelines stating how often a person should see the dentist. Some studies suggest once a year while others say every three or six months. Depending on your current dental health, your dental history, your risk factors for dental disease and your personal preference, your dentist will recommend the frequency of visits that’s right for you.
