Cleaning and Prevention

A focus on preventive dentistry helps you maintain the highest standard of oral health while limiting dental expenditures.  A partnership between you and our team pays dividends, protecting your smile now and well into the future.

At home, prevention may include brushing and flossing twice a day.  But many strategies and oral health aids exist that may fit your situation even better.  Often patients are surprised to learn that a particular toothpaste, rinse, or specialized toothpick will serve them best and make all the difference in their efforts. Our team can help customize solutions that enhance your daily efforts, often turning frustration into smiles at the healthy changes that occur.

Your diet plays a critical role in oral health as well.  Acidic foods and drinks can accelerate deterioration of your teeth, and certain foods can enhance the health of your supporting jawbone and gums.  Our team believes in bringing your efforts and ours into balance for optimum health.

And of course, regular dental exams and cleanings prove vital in preventing decay and gum disease as you keep daily habits consistent. With a proactive approach, together we can prevent minor issues from becoming major procedures.
