General & Preventative

What Is Preventative Dentistry?

Visits to the general dentist allow for basic dental care as well as preventive measures. Patients of all ages can benefit immensely from seeing a general dentist regularly. Regular visits to Smile Plus Dentistry allow our dentist to check for irregularities and detect any warning signals early on. Preventive care can then be administered to ensure that good dental health is maintained.

General and preventive dentistry encompass all of the services and treatments available to patients to assist them to keep their teeth and gums as healthy as possible to avoid decay and illness. It may also include preventative measures such as fluoride or sealants to lower the chance of decay.

The Importance of Preventive Dentistry

Periodic examinations and cleanings allow us to monitor your teeth for decay or infection, screen for oral cancer and disorders like infection in the soft tissue of your mouth and gums and ensure that your smile is sparkling clean and free of bacterial buildup.

We may suggest more frequent visits for individuals who have gum disease or are prone to decay but be assured that everything we offer, from fluoride treatments to mouthguards, is tailored to your specific needs.
