The Importance of Getting Preventative Dentistry


Posted on 8/9/2021 by Nam Thien Vu, DDS
The Importance of Getting Preventative DentistryPreventative dentistry is a clinical term that means getting the dental care you need to maintain good oral health. It is a combination of regular dental exams coupled with good oral hygiene habits. Preventative dentistry is important for everyone, both young and old.

Preventive Dentistry Services Available to You


Preventative dentistry is key to having healthy teeth and gums over a lifetime. We have you covered. Our part of preventative dentistry looks like providing services to you that are both preventative and proactive for whatever stage of oral health you are at. We provide oral exams, professional teeth cleaning, and routine x-rays. These services are best utilized every six months. In addition, we educate patients during these exams on how to take care of their teeth and gums.

Your Part of Preventative Dentistry


Your role in preventative dentistry happens at home. Good oral hygiene habits are taught in our office, but they are best executed daily at home. Developing good habits early in life can help to reduce dental problems in the later years. We encourage you to brush your teeth twice a day using a soft-bristled toothbrush. Floss your teeth daily as well to remove food lodged between your teeth. Avoid sugary foods and beverages as well as hard foods that could damage your teeth. We advise all our patients to avoid smoking.

Make Your Next Appointment Today


Preventive dentistry is a combination of services we offer and things you can do at home to benefit your teeth. It is important for you to make your appointment so you can benefit from our services, as well as be aware of what is going on in your mouth. We look forward to working alongside you and educating you so that you can have the best oral health possible.
