Our office places a high priority on cavity prevention. Routine check-ups at least once every six months, updated x-rays to detect problems early, and professional cleanings with a dental hygienist are the best tools we can offer for prevention and early detection. We also recommend fluoride treatments for children and adults that are susceptible to tooth decay.
The Frequency of Dental Exams
We may advise patients who are particularly susceptible to decay or tartar to get more frequent exams and cleanings in an effort to catch problems early. Every mouth is different, and we customize prevention and treatment plans to match each patient's needs and circumstances.
Importance of Preventive Dentistry
In addition to preventive dentistry, we work with patients to ensure home oral care routines and diets are optimized to help prevent decay and tartar build-up. We will demonstrate proper brushing and flossing techniques for patients during cleanings and are always happy to answer any questions about decay-causing foods to avoid and how to keep your mouth healthy and happy.
