Prevention Made Just For You!

Custom Made Dental Prevention

Every patient has unique dental needs.

When it comes to prevention in dentistry, two visits a year may be average, but more appointments are necessary if your case requires some extra care. That might mean that your mouth builds up tartar quickly, you have one or more cavities, or teeth or gums are experiencing pain from infection.

With regular dental checkups, we’re here to make sure your smile stays healthy and bright. Fluoride has helped to improve the dental health of its users for generations, and we can apply sealants to children’s teeth to fend off decay. X-rays are safer; modern anesthetics more effective. All in the name of prevention.

Recent research has discovered that it’s not just your mouth that benefits from this extra prevention—it could save your life.

The American Heart Association reports that the BEST indicator for the chance of a stroke is your number of teeth. Not cholesterol, blood pressure, or a bad diet. The more teeth you lose, the higher the risk of stroke.

We can help you keep those teeth where they belong by monitoring your oral health and taking action when problems appear. We’ll recommend how often to come in. Call us today at (518) 633-4446.
