What Is Preventative Dentistry?
The purpose of preventative dentistry is to help patients of all ages avoid any type of dental disease or condition that may be detrimental to the overall oral health. Learning and practicing preventative dentistry should begin in the early stages of life; possibly even as early as infancy before the teeth ever break through the gums.
Preventative dentistry is also useful when it comes to diagnosing dental disease, such as periodontal disease, in its early stages before irreversible damage is done. Dr. Cheri Neal knows the importance of this type of dentistry and works with her patients to help each of them maintain healthy teeth and gums through exams, procedures and education.Teeth Cleanings Digital X Rays Oral Cancer Screens Dental Exams Dental Sealants
