Did you know that preventive dentistry goes beyond simple dental cleanings? While these are crucial to the health of your smile, preventive care encompasses a much more comprehensive range of services, all aimed at keeping the mouth free from decay and disease. Preventive dentistry is recommended at any age, especially children who need guidance understanding the importance of good oral hygiene from an early age, but we encourage all patients to attend these appointments. When your teeth are healthy and strong, you are able to eat, speak, and smile with confidence and preventive dentistry services help you establish and maintain this proper oral health!
While good oral hygiene begins at home, we provide many professional preventive dentistry services that are designed to catch symptoms early or detect suspicious areas that most patients are unaware of. Keeping routine dental appointments at our Miami Beach, FL office means our experienced dental team can monitor your dental health through comprehensive evaluations, x-rays, and screenings. Maintaining a healthy smile also plays a role in overall health; similarly, maintaining good overall health can improve oral health. In addition to brushing and flossing regularly, we also recommend that patients maintain healthy lifestyles, including eating a nutritious diet and limiting sugary and acidic foods. Smoking and tobacco use also affects oral health and it is recommended that it be limited or avoided entirely as well. What steps do you need to take to improve your oral health? No matter how long it has been since your last dental examination, we invite all patients to our Miami Beach, FL office to receive preventive dentistry care to ensure your smile remain healthy and beautiful.
