What is preventive dentistry?

Preventive dentistry focuses on maintaining optimal oral health and preventing dental issues before they develop. This includes regular dental check-ups, cleanings, fluoride treatments, and sealants to protect against cavities and gum disease. Our team believes in investing in high-quality preventive dental care, as it can go a long way in preventing costly and invasive restorative treatments from becoming necessary. Even if you take great care of your teeth at home (and we know that you do!) prioritizing preventive dentistry is very important.

Which combination of preventive dental treatments do I need?

Your custom treatment plan will depend on your individual oral health needs and risk factors. A typical combination may include routine dental check-ups and professional cleanings every six months, fluoride treatments to strengthen enamel, and dental sealants to protect vulnerable areas from decay. If your teeth are at risk of being damaged by chronic teeth grinding or participating in an aggressive sport, we may also recommend a custom mouthguard. Our team would be happy to assess your smile and make personalized recommendations just for you.
