What is Preventive Care?
Preventive dentistry focuses on caring regularly for your teeth in a way that prevents cavities and decay as well as tooth damage and disease. Preventive dentistry maintains the health and beauty of your smile and can also save you major costs in the long run on expensive restorations and procedures.
Preventive dentistry is not only important for adults, but it can also help establish good habits with children at a young age. Proper brushing and flossing as well as eating healthy foods and visiting the dentist regularly can help prevent several dental issues such as:
- Enamel wear and weakness
- Other advanced dental complications that stem from poor oral hygiene practices
At Parkwood Dental, we offer multiple preventive care services to help maintain stellar smiles for our patients.
Knowing where to begin with your individual treatment plan starts with the first visit. Doctor Hernandez provides comprehensive examinations that fully evaluate the status of your dental health and help determine the best course of treatment to restore and maintain your smile.
