A preventive and early intervention program are 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 dental disease starts at home with good oral 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 oral health. Unsure how to enhance your oral health care at home? Our hygienists are more than happy to teach you the tricks of the trade!
Prevention also includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Sealants and fluoride are also great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth.
The Gentle Family Dentistry team believes strongly in the oral-systemic health connection. A healthy mouth is the door to a healthy body, and our goal is to see our patients enjoy a wonderful quality of life that begins with prevention, early diagnosis and timely treatment. Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident, beautiful smile.
