What is preventative dentistry?
Simply put, it's the practice of keeping your teeth and gums healthy to prevent disease. As they say, "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." Maintaining proper oral hygiene practices such as daily brushing and flossing, accompanied by regular cleanings (we recommend every 3-6 months) are vital to proper dental health. Practicing good oral hygiene will help to ensure that your teeth remain strong and healthy. It also helps to avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear and more.
Having good dental health is essential to living a healthy lifestyle! Oral diseases like gum disease can cause serious complications, such as cardiovascular disease. The bacteria associated with gym disease can enter the bloodstream and affect the heart. Keep your body in good shape by maintaining good oral hygiene!
