Cleanings & Prevention
Dallas TX Teeth Cleaning
A preventive program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental staff. In combination, they can help preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions.
Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet. Brushing daily along with floss will help keep your teeth clean. A diet low in sugary products will help keep harmful chemicals off of your teeth and gums.
It is continued in the dental office by the efforts of your dentist and dental hygienist to promote, restore, and maintain your oral health. Prevention also includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Sealants and fluoride are also great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth.
Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident, beautiful smile.
