Preventive Dentistry: Your Path to a Healthier Smile

Would you like more control over your family’s dental costs? Are you tired of missing work or school because of unexpected dental problems? Would you like the confidence that comes from knowing your teeth and gums are as healthy as they can be?

Preventive Dentistry Is the Answer

If you answered yes to any of these questions, preventive dentistry is the answer. Dental examinations and teeth cleanings with your San Jose dentist dramatically minimize your risk for cavities and gum disease that wreak havoc on your oral health, budget, and quality of life.

Your Partner in Oral Health Care

Maintaining healthy teeth and gums isn’t difficult, but it requires a team effort. Your at-home oral hygiene practices combined with preventive dental visits every six months—or as recommended—is the only way to avoid problems like cavities and gum disease.

Comprehensive Dental Exams

Routine dental exams allow your San Jose dentist to monitor your oral health on an ongoing basis. If your dental team detects a problem, they’ll set you up with a treatment plan to nip it in the bud. Filling a small cavity is much easier on you than waiting until you get a toothache at 2 AM, and an early diagnosis also gives us more conservative treatment options.

Teeth Cleanings Help You Avoid Gum Disease

You need to brush and floss diligently at home to remove cavity-causing plaque from your teeth. But even the best at-home efforts alone can’t eliminate tartar that also develops and leads to gum disease or gingivitis. Tartar is calcified plaque, and only a dental hygienist can remove this hard, mineral-like deposit using specialized instruments.

Oral Hygiene at Home

Brushing and flossing your teeth seems pretty basic, but you don’t just need to do it—you need to do it correctly to provide the most protection for your smile. Ask your hygienist to review the most effective techniques with you to be sure your at-home efforts are productive
