Preventive dentistry is exactly what it sounds like: A group of comprehensive dental services that are performed to preserve the natural development of the teeth and the supporting structures of the teeth. Preventive dentistry stops dental conditions such as cavities, tooth loss and gum disease from starting, continuing, or reappearing. Proper preventive dentistry is a joint effort between Dr. Arndt, our staff, and the patient to ensure the practice of good oral health.

You Might Already be Performing Preventive Dentistry!

Even if you don’t know the components of preventive dentistry, you are likely already performing many of these complete family dental techniques on a regular basis. Some of the main components of preventive dentistry include regular exams/cleaning, brushing/flossing at home and regular dental X-rays to make sure the teeth and gums are in good health.

Preventive dentistry promotes the ongoing performance of healthy dental habits at home. Good oral care reduces the risk of developing tooth decay, gum disease and tooth loss. In addition, preventive dentistry can save you money since you will not have to visit our office to treat serious dental problems.

The performance of preventive dental care starts when you schedule an appointment. Dr. Arndt and the clinical team will examine your teeth, perform a regular cleaning, and take X-rays of your teeth. The doctor will be happy to discuss preventive dentistry steps and share the knowledge you need to know to enjoy a lifetime of healthy teeth.
