At Serenity Family Dentistry, we believe that good preventive care is important for your entire family, no matter what your age. The goal of preventive care is to protect your smile from damage caused by tooth decay, periodontal disease, and other damaging dental conditions. Preventive dentistry works to avert these diseases before they cause damage that requires repair.
We offer a number of preventive dental treatments to help you keep your smile in the best possible health. These services include dental sealants and dental cleanings; visiting our office regularly ensures that we detect and treat any early signs of damage before they become more extensive and painful.
There are several steps you can take to prevent cavities and tooth decay. Dr. Ansari and his dental team recommend that you follow these guidelines to help minimize your chances for developing cavities:
- Brush your teeth twice a day, using a soft-bristled toothbrush and a fluoridated toothpaste, and floss your teeth once every day.
- Maintain a balanced, healthy diet with a limited amount of very sugary or acidic foods.
- Visit our office at least twice a year for a routine teeth cleaning and dental exam.
- Ask our team about dental sealants and fluoride treatment to see if they are right for your smile.
