Preventive Dentistry maintains good dental health through good nutrition, daily tooth brushing and flossing and routine dental checkups every 6 months to remove plaque and tartar. During your visit, our hygienist or dentist will check for tooth decay, broken restorations, gum disease, oral cancer, toothache and other dental problems such as night grinding and clenching or bad breath. You will be sure to find a wide range of services from placing white fillings to dental braces, dental crowns and more in order to make your smile look its best.
Symptoms of gum disease such as bleeding and swelling of gums may result in loose teeth. It is most common in adults and is responsible for majority of tooth loss. This area of dentistry is called Periodontics.
