Preventative dentistry is what you do daily and what we do at your re-care appointments to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
Preventative care helps avoid cavities, enamel wear, gum disease, infections and potentially reduces the need for time consuming and expensive restorative care later.
You can do a lot on your own, like brushing at least twice a day and flossing once a day.
In addition to that ongoing maintenance of daily brushing and flossing, you need the regular check up and cleaning at the dentist.
Many dental insurance plans cover routine dental checkups, including cleanings and exams.
Daily brushing and flossing and semi-annual checkups and cleanings are as important for children as they are for adults.
There are fluoride treatments and sealants for first and second molars that dramatically reduce tooth decay.
At Plum Grove Dental Associates we offer exams, teeth cleaning, oral hygiene instructions and treatment for periodontal disease.
