“My favourite part of being a hygienist Is to see a nice smile at the end of the procedure.”
— Theresa Joy Furbert, Davinci Dental
Preventive DentistryPreventive dentistry shows the importance, not only of daily practices at home to prevent tooth decay and other conditions, but also in-office hygiene procedures.
The American Dental Association recommends a minimum of two dental exams per year for professional cleaning and to manage any developing conditions.
Early prevention is key.
The time for a first visit to the dentist is when a child’s first tooth erupts or 12 months of age, whichever comes first.
In children, severe decay can affect growth and development. Preventive dentistry can result in less extensive – and less expensive – treatment for any dental conditions that may develop, and help you keep your natural teeth for a lifetime.
Considering that oral health is linked to overall health, preventive dentistry is important to your overall well being. Oral diseases can interfere with eating, speaking, daily activities and self-esteem.
