Preventative Care Services

Preventative Care is taking steps to avoid getting cavities or other oral health problems. This can include brushing and flossing regularly, eating a balanced diet, and avoiding sugary drinks. Why does it matter to youth and adults? Because taking care of your teeth and gums now can help avoid problems later on. For children, preventative care can mean no cavities in their baby teeth. For adults, it can mean fewer fillings or even no cavities at all. In addition, good oral health has been linked with overall good health. So by taking care of your mouth, you may be taking steps to protect your whole body. Preventative dental care is important for everyone, and it’s never too early or too late to start taking care of your teeth.

Preventative Care FAQ

The following questions about preventative dental care are among the most common questions we get from patients. Whether you’re an adult or a child, maintaining good oral health is important for overall health and well-being. Here are some frequently asked questions about preventative care to help you keep your smile healthy and bright:
How often should I see the dentist for preventative care?
For most people, twice-yearly cleanings and checkups are sufficient. However, if you have a history of gum disease or other oral health issues, your dentist may recommend more frequent visits.
What is the best way to brush my teeth to prevent cavities?
There is no one “right” way to brush your teeth. However, the American Dental Association recommends using fluoride toothpaste and brushing for two minutes at least twice a day. Be sure to reach all surfaces of your teeth, including the back molars, where cavities are most likely to form.
What are some other things I can do to prevent cavities?
In addition to brushing and flossing regularly, you can also help prevent cavities by eating a balanced diet and avoiding sugary snacks and drinks. Chewing sugarless gum can also help by stimulating saliva production, which helps to wash away food and bacteria. Drinking fluoridated water can also help to reduce cavities by strengthening tooth enamel.
By following these simple tips, you can help keep your smile healthy and bright for years to come!

I made my first appointment with Dr. Hendre after reading a few good reviews online. After experiencing my first appointment, I'm writing my own review to let you know that good isn't accurate - the better way to describe Dr. Hendre and her office team is INCREDIBLE.
