Cleanings and prevention refer to the cooperative effort of the patient, dental staff, and dentist to preserve the natural dentition and prevent the recurrence, progression, and onset of dental diseases and conditions. The prevention of dental diseases should begin at home via a balanced diet and good oral hygiene. That should continue in the dental office where the dental hygienist and/or the dentist maintain, restore, and improve the patient's oral health.
Oftentimes, the prevention component is comprised of dental x-rays, cleanings, regular dental exams, etc. Fluoride and sealants are also stellar preventive treatments that are designed to protect the patient's teeth.
A proper cleanings and prevention program can help you achieve and maintain a beautiful and healthy smile that beams with confidence. By visiting your dentist once every six months, you can also avoid costly and serious dental problems down the road.
