It’s always very satisfying to walk out of your dental appointment with clean, healthy teeth without any decay or cavities. But a dental office isn’t going to be able to do all the upkeep on their own. Great dental care takes place at home, too. That’s why, at Drs Chapman & Owens, we promote the practice of preventative dentistry.
What Is Preventative Dentistry?
Preventative dentistry is the practice of working to keep your teeth clean and healthy in such a way that it prevents disease and decay from occurring in the first place. This involves not only coming to visit us at Drs Chapman & Owens at least once every six months but also brushing and flossing regularly at home.
Children especially benefit from preventative dentistry when they learn from a young age to keep their teeth clean by flossing and brushing. We may even be able to apply sealants to keep your children’s teeth cavity-free.
Coupled with consistent trips to see us, your at-home teeth cleaning routine will ultimately go a long way toward keeping your smile healthy for a lifetime. Although you are the one performing your at-home care, we can help you. At each appointment, we can take time to teach you the best practices for your hygiene routines.
Why Is Preventative Dentistry Important?
Our dental office is perfectly able and ready to help you in the case of dental disease or decay. If you need restorative or cosmetic work done, we are here to help you achieve the best smile you can. As much as we love this work, we always hope to prevent serious dental problems that make restorative and cosmetic work a necessity.
Your experience at our office and your oral health will be greatly benefited by maintaining a beautiful, healthy smile through attending cleanings and engaging in good hygiene habits. At Chapman & Owens, we are here to help you do just that.
With our help, you can avoid cavities, decay, losing teeth, and other dental problems. Good dental care now can help you avoid expensive, uncomfortable procedures as well as pain.
