Preventive dentistry focuses on procedures and life practices that help people to prevent the beginning or progression of oral diseases. It includes dental care performed at home by patients, as well as dental care and education by a dentist .
At Aspendale Gardens Dental Group we place strong emphasis on preventing problems before they start. This philosophy of preventive care means we aim to be conservative with our dental treatments.
Establishing a regular oral healthcare routine is the best way to avoid most dental problems. For most people, this includes 6 monthly visits to the dentist for a thorough dental examination, cleaning, x-rays, and other preventive maintenance procedures.
Prevention is key to achieving a beautiful, healthy smile. Good preventive dentistry and oral health care can help prevent dental decay, gingivitis and periodontal disease, keeping your smile happy and healthy.
