Preventive Dental Care
At Divine Smiles, we know that having a beautiful smile is not enough. It is also important that you should know how to properly take care of your teeth in order for your beautiful smile to last a lifetime.
This is why we offer Preventive Dental Care services.
With good dental hygiene, you will not only make your teeth and gums feel fresh, clean and vibrant, but also provide the foundation for lifelong health.
The Importance of Healthy Teeth
It all starts with your teeth. It has been scientifically proven that inadequate oral health can have a significant impact on your general well-being. Stroke, Heart Disease, Cardiovascular Disease and Respiratory Disease are all more likely to occur if the patient also suffers from poor dental health. Preventive Dentistry enables you to manage and maintain your teeth and gums, keeping them healthy for life.
How Do I Keep My Teeth Healthy?
- Brush twice daily
- Use a soft toothbrush with rounded bristles
- Replace your toothbrush every three to four months
- Use toothpaste with added fluoride
- Floss at least once daily
- Visit us every six months for a thorough examination and clean
Routine Preventive Dentistry requires the lifelong commitment of patients and dental staff. Through regularly scheduled appointments, expensive and time consuming procedures can be avoided. Preventive Dentistry includes Periodic Examinations, Hygiene Therapy (cleanings), Sealants and Fluoride Treatment.
Remember it is never too early or too late in life to begin practicing good dental hygiene techniques.
Maintaining Dental Health For Life
Our Active Maintenance department is run by Alana, a very gentle and caring clinician. She will use the Diagnodent Diagnostic Laser to detect any small cavities, which can be filled to prevent the tooth from decaying further and involving costly procedures such as root canal treatment.
