Preventative

Most oral health problems can be prevented through proper diet, brushing and flossing, and visiting your dentist regularly. This prevents healthy patients from developing periodontitis, an inflammatory disease that attacks the bone and supporting structures of the teeth. Other forms of preventine dentistry include dental sealants, fluoride treatment, and fluoride varnish.

We also counsel patients on proper diet, as that is truly the first line of defense against bacteria in the mouth. The more sugar that is in one’s diet the more bacteria one will harbor inside the mouth. Not only will the bacteria be higher in numbers but their ability to cause dental disease increases with the amount of sugar ingested.

Fluoride has helped tremendously in decreasing the amount of decay in the population, but alone it is not enough. To maintain a healthy oral environment every patient must take the proper steps to minimize the amount of bacteria attacking the oral structures.
