At Landry Family and Orthodontic Dentistry, we understand the importance of preventive care, and offer a number of treatments to help keep your mouth free from cavities, gum disease and other dental problems. With preventive dentistry, you can nip tooth decay and other damage in the bud before they become serious problems.
The purpose of preventive dentistry is to protect your teeth and gums from damaging dental conditions and help you maintain good oral health and a beautiful smile. Preventive dentistry is designed to help you avoid entirely or halt tooth decay, periodontal disease and other conditions before they can cause damage to your mouth. There are a number of professional treatments provided at our office to help us diagnose and treat potential dental problems as early as possible, including:
Preventive dentistry also includes your home care routine. Your dental hygiene at home is critical to your ongoing oral health, and does more to keep your smile healthy than anything else. We encourage you to ask our dentist and team about your home care routine to find ways you can improve it.
Here are a few guidelines to follow to minimize your risk of dental problems:
- Brush and floss daily
- Visit our office every six months for a dental cleaning and exam
- Ask us about additional preventive treatments, such as dental sealants
- Maintain a balanced, nutritious diet
- Limit your intake of sugary and acidic foods
