Preventive dentistry is your best investment in your oral and overall health. Good oral health doesn’t just protect your teeth and eliminate the need for future restorative procedures, it can improve your overall health. If you can avoid cavities, tooth infections, and gum disease, you will have a lower risk of heart disease, dementia, and other serious health problems in the future. We offer many preventive dentistry procedures, including:
- Family dentistry
- Teeth cleaning and dental hygiene
Family dentistry means providing dental care not just for you as an individual, but also caring for you as part of a family. Families eat and drink together, which can mean that they have some of the same dental risks, so caring for a family together can improve overall health.
Teeth cleaning and dental hygiene is probably the most important thing that you can do for your oral and overall health. Most of it you do at home, with routine brushing and flossing. However, your regular professional cleanings can be a critical supplement to your home hygiene routine. We can remove hard deposits from your teeth that you can’t remove at home.
Mouthguards are critical to the protection of your teeth when you participate in sports. We offer mouthguards that don’t just protect your teeth--they can improve your performance.
