Preventative dentistry is fundamental to the health of your mouth and body. You will likely only see your local San Jose dentist a few times a year if everything is going right and you only have cleanings and check-ups with us. That means that for the rest of the time, your oral care is in your hands, and no one else. In between check-ups and cleanings, you can make or break your dental health with your habits.
Preventative dentistry is anything that you or your dentist does to try to prevent issues, like cavities, from happening to your teeth. We have dental cleanings, x-rays, and whitening treatments at our dental office, and at home, you have your daily oral care routine of brushing and flossing.
Your oral care routine will do a lot to define your oral health. Brushing and flossing every day can prevent issues, like gingivitis and the formation of cavities. Avoiding these kinds of problems altogether is better than ever having them in the first place, and that's why we place so much emphasis on prevention.
Every patient should make their oral healthcare routine a top priority in their life. A significant part of that is staying up-to-date on your visits to the dentist to ensure that you are getting your routine cleanings and that your mouth is healthy.
