What is Preventive Care?

Preventive care is a preventive measure that aims to maintain optimal oral health and prevent the development of dental issues. It involves proactive steps such as regular dental check-ups, cleanings, and other treatments that are designed to prevent the onset of dental problems. By taking steps to prevent dental issues, individuals can avoid more extensive and costly dental procedures in the future and maintain good oral health for years to come.

Why is Preventive Care important?

Preventive care is important because it can help identify and treat dental problems before they become more serious and require more invasive and expensive treatments. Regular check-ups and cleanings can also help maintain good oral health and prevent issues like cavities, gum disease, and tooth loss.

Who is a candidate for Preventive Care?

Everyone should receive preventive care, regardless of their age, gender, or overall oral health. This includes children, adults, and seniors. Patients who have a history of dental problems or who are at a higher risk of developing them may require more frequent check-ups and cleanings.

What happens during the Preventive Care procedure?

During a preventive care procedure, your dentist will examine your teeth and gums for any signs of decay, disease, or other issues. They may also take x-rays to get a better look at your teeth and jawbone. Next, they will clean your teeth to remove any plaque or tartar buildup. Finally, they may apply a fluoride treatment or other preventative measures to help protect your teeth and gums.
