Experts in Preventative Dentistry

The Family Dental Group understands that it is your goal to stay out of the dental chair as much as possible. For this reason, the Family Dental Group excels at preventative dentistry services. Preventative dentistry helps patients maintain a healthy smile and avoid the onset of decay and oral disease. For preventative dentistry to be successful, at home care and patient education is key. Preventative Dentistry includes oral hygiene as well as procedures that maintain healthy teeth and gums.

Strong oral hygiene begins with a patient’s at-home care and continues with professional examinations and teeth cleanings twice a year. X-rays are also safe and important components to successful detection and prevention of the onset of disease and other dental concerns.

In order to diligently care for your teeth at home, the Family Dental Group recommends using fluoride toothpastes and mouth rinses. If paired with regular brushing and flossing you can greatly reduce your chances for developing gum disease and other conditions such as bad breath.

The prevention of the onset of gum disease is one of the most important aspects of preventative dentistry. Gum disease causes the tooth’s bone tissue to start to deteriorate. If caught early, gum disease is completely treatable and even reversible. If unaddressed, the gums deteriorate and begin detaching themselves from the teeth forming gum pockets, which allows more plaque to collect below the gum line.

Don’t risk your healthy smile and overall good healthy by ignoring preventative care. Contact the Family Dental Group to schedule your next exam and professional cleaning today!
