What Is Preventative Dentistry?
Preventative dentistry helps patients of all ages avoid types of dental disease or condition that may hurt your overall oral health. Learning and practicing ways to care for your teeth should begin in the early stages of life. In some cases, learning about oral health even as early as infancy before the teeth ever break through the gums can be helpful.
Diagnosing dental disease, such as periodontal (gum) disease, in its early stages before irreversible damage happens is the purpose of preventative dentistry.
