Preventive dentistry is the practice of caring for your teeth to keep them healthy. This helps to avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and keeps your teeth looking their best. The majority of preventive dentistry can be accomplished at home, on your own. This includes proper brushing, flossing, and use of various other items to prevent disease. There is some preventive dentistry that can only be accomplished at the dental office. Our dentists, dental hygienists and dental assistants are highly trained professionals that will not only provide you with the best preventive dentistry but also help you improve your own preventive dentistry at home.
