Preventative Dentistry

Glendale Dentist Serving Phoenix, Scottsdale, Peoria, and nearby areas in Arizona

Preventative dentistry protects the function and beauty of your smile by ensuring good oral health. Preventative dentistry may include:

  • Teeth cleanings
  • Dental examinations
  • Tooth sealants
  • Prevention of tooth decay
  • Oral cancer screenings

By detecting oral health problems early, preventative dentistry can save you the expense and time of more invasive dental treatment down the road.

Preventative dentistry is critical to preventing gum disease, the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. If plaque is not removed, it accumulates on your teeth, especially along the gumline. The plaque can quickly progress into an infection, damaging your teeth and gums. To prevent gum disease, regular dental cleanings and a proper at-home oral hygiene routine are imperative.
