Our dentist and dental team work hard to repair your teeth after they are damaged by disease or injury; however, we would much rather prevent dental problems from damaging your smile in the first place. We are pleased to provide preventive dentistry to help protect your smile from tooth decay, periodontal disease, and other dental problems. One of the best ways to prevent decay and gum disease is to maintain a good dental hygiene routine. This should include brushing your teeth at least two times a day, flossing at least once a day, and eating a balanced diet. Depending on your individual dental needs, Dr. Wendy Britt may recommend specific dental products to help you keep your smile healthy.
In addition, we provide preventive dental treatments at our office. Two of our most common preventive treatments are dental sealants and fluoride treatment. Both sealants and fluoride are helpful in protecting your teeth from decay. Visiting our dentist for a routine dental cleaning and exam every six months also helps us keep your smile in the best possible health.
