Preventive Dentistry

Why Regular Visits at your Dentist Matter!

Preventive dentistry is important for your teeth to keep them healthy by avoiding gum disease, tooth decay and more. Modern medicine links a number of cardiovascular, kidney and other diseases to different types of bacteria in tooth plaque.

Preventive oral health habits like regular dental care and good oral hygiene are important for general and oral health for a lifetime. Good oral care comes also as a key factor for an aesthetic harmonic smile and self-confidence in a patient’s expression.

Regular visits to your dentist should be an integral part of your overall oral care routine. Having a professional assessment and thorough clean of your mouth at least once a year goes a long way to keeping your teeth and gums healthy and bright, today and for the future.

During a routine check up, your dentist will remove harmful plaque and calculus (tartar), test for gum disease and mouth cancer, and provide expert advice on everything from brushing techniques to necessary treatments.

Check-ups are the simplest way to detect any changes in your oral health.
