Exam and Cleanings

Preventive dental care is the practice of cleaning and maintaining the health of your teeth and gums even if there aren’t any problems develop. Preventive dental care will help you avoid gum disease, cavities, wear on your enamel, and other serious dental health issues. Perhaps you didn’t know that you do preventive dental care every day by brushing and flossing your teeth at least two times daily.

But brushing and flossing isn’t enough. The American Dental Association (ADA) also recommends that you pay regular visits to your dentist. They can help to ensure your teeth are healthy, clean, strong, and white. They can also help you to teach your children proper dental care from an early age.

Take the test yourself:

Your gums are more pinkish (as it should normally be) or rather dark red?
When passing your tongue on your teeth do you feel something wrong?
1. Do you bleed when you brush your teeth?
2. Do you have bad breath?
3. Do you feel that your tooth is getting longer?
4. One of your loved ones has lost his teeth particularly early?

 

If you answered yes to any of the questions, be reassured. Modern preventive care can preserve the health of your teeth and gums. Luckily, your dentist and dental hygienist know how to prevent and treat these problems at the same time as providing you with the peace of mind!
