Preventive dental care is just what it sounds like. It is care designed to help you maintain a state of oral health, and help you to prevent further problems from occurring, or new problems from developing.
Preventive care includes complete oral examinations, proper X-rays (radiographs) taken at proper intervals, general hygiene care, Oral Hygiene instruction (to help you do your part in keeping your mouth clean and healthy), routine check-up intervals, and ongoing care and information for you.
We will work with your children to ensure that they enjoy coming to our office, and we will help you instill good home care techniques. We will be proactive in recommending and placing sealants to significantly decrease the incidence of molar cavities in your children.
Some people can be seen at six month intervals, some need to be seen at four month intervals, and some even need to be seen at three month intervals. What kind of care, and the intervals of your care, will be explained to you in a way that will help you understand and accept the reasons specific to your mouth and your oral health.
