PREVENTIVE CARE

Preventive care dentistry is the foundation of having a lifetime of good dental health and an attractive smile. The two primary causes of tooth loss, decay and gum disease, are generally caused by bacteria in the mouth. However, both of these problems can be dramatically minimized, if not prevented, through proper dental hygiene practiced on a regular basis.

Schedule a cleaning & exam for you and your whole family every six months to ensure your best oral health.

Some of the elements of proper dental hygiene include brushing twice a day, flossing, eating a balanced diet, limiting between-meal snacks, and seeing your dentist twice a year for cleaning and exam.
