Preventative dentistry is the practice of caring for one’s teeth to keep them healthy. This helps to avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and more. There are many forms of preventive dentistry, such as daily brushing, daily flossing (proper brushing and flossing techniques), and regular dental cleanings. Our dental team may recommend fissures sealants to prevent cavities, oral prescription rinses to fight against gum disease and periodontitis; and mouth guards for people who clench and/or grind. Mouth guards are also recommended to all those who participate in impact sports or activities, to prevent broken teeth and concussions.
