Preventive dentistry is vital to the prevention of tooth decay and other diseases of the oral cavity. Each dental treatment is much more effective if we regularly (at least once a year) visit the dental hygienist for the following:
- removal of tartar (scaling);
- removal of sediment (sandblasting);
- fluoridation, which reduces the incidence of tooth decay by up to 40%;
- dental sealing of both primary teeth as well as permanent molars;
- dental check-up.
Proper preventive dentistry is the basis for a perfect smile.
