Preventive Care at Clayburn Dental
Preventive care is oral care that involves education, treatment and practice of maintaining your teeth and gums. From daily brushing to annual dental cleanings, these tasks are designed to avoid gum disease, cavities and enamel wear – which often leads to sensitivity.
A preventive program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental team to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures via preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and harmful oral conditions. Preventing dental problems start at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet.
It is continued in the dental office by the efforts of your dentist and dental hygienist to promote, restore, and maintain your oral health. Prevention also includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Sealants and fluoride are also great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth.
