What Is Preventive Care?

You probably hear quite often that you need excellent preventive care to keep your smile healthy. However, if you’re not sure about what prevention entails, how it works, or what exactly it includes or does for you, then you might not feel too concerned about practicing it. Fortunately, we offer you a simple breakdown of helpful details, so you are familiar with prevention and feel more motivated to protect your smile.

Preventive Care Treatments

You know you need it and you know that preventive care helps you avoid problems with your oral health. However, as far as the particular treatments included within this type of care, you may be at a loss. Let’s work our way through a quick review:

  • Dental Checkups: We will examine your oral health and suggest necessary treatments.
  • Dental Cleanings: We will clean your teeth thoroughly, removing buildup you cannot handle at home.
  • Bruxism/TMJ Treatment: We will address problems with your jaw joints, teeth grinding, and teeth clenching, to prevent damage.
  • Children’s Dentistry: We offer pediatric care, so your children feel good about care, enjoy healthy smiles, and learn to develop effective habits.

The Benefits

The benefits of preventive care are generally quite obvious (though some advantages are less apparent than others). As for the obvious factors, you can avoid pain, the loss of tooth tissue, and restorative treatments by simply caring for your smile before problems begin. As for the less obvious, you will feel better about your efforts as your smile remains healthy, you will spend less money by avoiding restorative care, and you will promote natural teeth that remain in place (and healthy).
