Preventative care involves taking measures to protect your teeth from damage. By practicing good oral hygiene, you are taking an essential step toward preventing tooth decay and gum disease. Visiting our Dream Smiles Dental dentist at least twice yearly for checkups and professional cleanings is critical to maintaining oral health. When you practice preventative dental care, you can prevent or catch many dental problems in their early stages, which allows you more conservative treatment options and better overall results.
While some people only visit the dentist when something is wrong, these visits can significantly help with prevention. Cavities and gum disease love to hide from detection in the mouth, so even if a person doesn't have symptoms, they can still have these issues. Luckily at Dream Smiles Dental, our hygienist offers DEEP CLEANING treatment to resolve the issue. Diagnosing these problems in their early stages can also help save more of the healthy tooth structure before it has to be removed. Visiting the dentist for preventative care and routine checkups allows dentists to watch for any issues patients may overlook. This can help prevent complications and keep teeth healthy and strong.
