Preventative Dentistry

Frequently Asked Questions..

Do I really need to have my teeth professionally cleaned?

Yes. Even if you brush and floss after every meal and before bed, bacteria-harboring plaque can accumulate in the tiniest crevices, grooves and pits. Overtime, the teeth will begin to decay in those areas, which may result in pain and partial or total tooth loss.

What types of guidelines should I follow after my visit?

In between dental cleanings and consultations, be sure to maintain good oral habits at home. This includes daily flossing and brushing after meals. It’s also important to use a fluoridated toothpaste.

Preventative Dentistry Includes Dental Hygiene, Dental Fillings, Sealants, Digital X-rays, and Head/Neck Examination including Oral Cancer Screening.
