Our goal is to provide our patients with the knowledge and skills they need to prevent damage, infection, and tooth loss, so that they maintain their original teeth for as long as possible. In order to do this, we take a preventive dentistry approach to caring for our patients.
We provide dental checkup and give our patient the information and instructions they need to practice good dental hygiene at home. We will work with you to create a program that will help you reach your oral health goals, so that you can avoid complications and expensive treatments later on.
PREVENTION IS BEST
The goal with preventative dentistry is to avoid complications with your oral health. We do this through routine maintenance and proper dental and oral hygiene techniques both in the office and for you at home. Prevention is more beneficial that treatment for several reasons, including the following:
- Prevention is easier than treatment
- Prevention is more cost effective than treatment
- Preventions reduces the risk of gum disease, which causes tooth loss
- Prevention leads to good oral hygiene, which has a positive impact on your overall health
SCHEDULE A REGULAR CHECKUP
In looking at patient charts over the last few decades, we have discovered that those who come in regularly – at least once or twice per year – end up spending less in dental repair costs than those who avoid the dentist. This is because regular exams and cleanings eliminate tooth decay and gum disease before they become a major issue, leading to root canals and tooth extractions.
If it has been more than six months since your last dental appointment, it is important that you contact our office today to schedule a cleaning and exam. Routine dental cleanings and exams can detect minor problems – even the ones you did not know existed in your mouth – fixing them before they become serious and costly to correct.
