Preventative Dentistry at Creative Smiles Dental Group

Preventing Tooth Decay

Preventative dentistry involves establishing habits that will keep your teeth healthy and avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear and more. During your regular visit at Creative Smiles Dental Group our dental hygienist will point out any issues that you may be having with your oral hygiene. Your hygienist will perform a cleaning, dental exam, an oral cancer exam, and perform any necessary X-rays. We will also evaluate the appearance of your teeth and recommend any aesthetic procedures that will enhance your smile, for example, cosmetic or orthodontic procedures.

Working Together We Can Prevent Decay

Establishing at-home oral hygiene habits is essential to keeping your teeth healthy. Brushing twice a day for at least two minutes and flossing after eating will help to remove plaque and decay. Plaque is difficult to remove and the best at-home habits may not be enough to keep it a bay. This is why it is so important to schedule regular dental visits with Creative Smiles Dental Group and allow our trained staff of oral hygienists to catch any problems that may be lurking before they manifest themselves.

Our recommendation is to visit with Dr. Grimes twice a year for regular cleanings and preventative treatments. By doing this you’ll have less frequent major issues with your oral health. Here are some of the tools you can use to keep your teeth healthy and strong:
