A preventive program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental staff to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions.
Preventing disease starts at home with excercise, good hygiene and a balanced diet. It is continued in the dental office by the efforts of your dentist and dental hygienist to promote, restore, and maintain your general and oral health.
At COSMETIC, LASER AND CEREC DENTISTRY, We see all stages of Prevention as the basis of any intervention.
Regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Sealants and Calcium Phosphate (an alternative to toxic fluoride) are also great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth. Remember that any necessary treatment is also a way to prevent further damage and deterioration of your health.
Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident, beautiful smile.
