Preventive dentistry is oral care that involves education, treatment and practice of maintaining your teeth and gums. From daily brushing to annual dental cleanings, these tasks are designed to avoid gum disease, cavities and enamel wear – which often leads to sensitivity. Regardless of age, preventative measures for oral health are crucial to avoid more serious complications.
Most common procedures in preventative dentistry include:
• Comprehensive oral examinations
• Regular teeth cleanings
• Dental imagining (x-rays)
• Fluoride varnish treatments
• Dental sealants
