Preventive dental care is essential for keeping teeth healthy for a lifetime. Preventive dentistry recommends regular check-ups, dental hygiene, and good practices that start in early childhood and continue throughout your life. A comprehensive exam is the best way to ensure that your mouth is healthy and beautiful. A regular visit to a dental hygienist is the best way to prevent dental emergencies and periodontal diseases such as gingivitis, periodontitis, receding gum, bone loss, loose teeth, and halitosis (bad breath). Dental sealant treatment is a painless procedure (compared to other restorative treatments) and doesn’t take more than 45 minutes. Different types of inexpensive sports or mouth guards are available over the counter, but we recommend custom-made sports guards from your dentist. Custom-made guards offer the best fit and comfort over drug store versions.
