“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 Dentistry

Preventive 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.
