Preventive dentistry is dental care that helps maintain good oral health. At La Clínica Dental Sonrisol our preventive dental care includes androutine oral exams, x-rays, cleanings, and fluoride treatments.
We practice preventive dentistry to ensure healthy teeth and gums of our patients to avoid cavities and gum disease, enamel wear and more. Good preventive care will significantly reduce the risk of developing cavities, gingivitis and periodontitis.
The periodontitis is a cascade of problems that occur when gingivitis is left untreated. Several factors work together to make gum disease worse and cause significant bone loss and loose teeth. Many scientific studies show a direct correlation between periodontal disease and heart disease, an increased risk of infection in people who have diabetes, and babies with low birth weight. These health problems can be controlled with good preventive dentistry.
Preventive dental services include checkups scheduled twice a year to maintain and care for your teeth, to help prevent cavities, gum disease, enamel wear and more serious dental problems. We inspect your teeth and gums, perform an X-ray, dental exam, and dental cleaning, and take care of problem areas before they become serious.
