Preventative Care & Maintenance
According to the American Dental Association almost 50 percent of adults over the age of 30 have a form of gum disease. It's also a fact that tooth decay is one of the most common chronic conditions suffered by American children.
One of the most important aspects of preventative care is ensuring regular oral exams and cleaning. Ideally you should do this twice each year (patients with periodontal disease may need to be scheduled up to 4 times a year). Any problems or decay will be identified during oral exams and professional cleaning removes any build up of plaque or tartar. We can help support your child/children in setting a successful oral hygiene program, brushing and flossing teeth properly every day is one way to ensure healthier teeth and gums and when kids have been taught the best tooth care techniques and learn habits like good oral hygiene these habits will remain with them for life.
When you pursue active preventive tooth care plans you’re likely to avoid serious dental problems later in life. Problems that can be avoided by great preventative care include gingivitis, cavities, enamel loss and periodontitis, so you can see just how important regular oral exams are to your overall oral health. One important aspect of preventative care for kids is in the successful development of adult teeth, children who receive regular oral exams will find their adult teeth come through easier and remain strong and healthy. Your healthy mouth also helps protect against harmful bacteria invading the rest of the body, as the mouth is a breeding ground for bacteria.
