Preventive Dentistry
Preventive dental services are an essential aspect of maintaining good oral health. These services aim to prevent dental problems before they occur, rather than just treating them after they have developed. Preventive dental services include routine dental cleanings, fluoride treatments, and dental sealants. During a routine dental cleaning, a dental hygienist removes plaque and tartar buildup from the teeth, reducing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Fluoride treatments can help strengthen the enamel of teeth, making them more resistant to decay.

Dental sealants are protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of molars, helping to prevent decay in the deep grooves of these teeth. By receiving regular preventive dental services, patients can reduce their risk of developing dental problems and maintain good oral health for a lifetime.
