The Importance of Preventative Care


Preventatvie Care kelownaAn ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, or so the saying goes. Nowhere is this adage truer than when it comes to dental care. Having a regularly scheduled checkup, cleaning, (recare), and fluoride appointment is the single best step you can take to prevent more painful and costly oral health problems. It should come as no surprise that catching a problem early not only avoids more invasive procedures, but saves a substantial amount of money and pain. A large part of what we do is to educate, empower and give you the tools to maintain a healthy mouth through general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry.

Of course, taking preventative care seriously starts at home with a proper diet, a healthy life style and regular flossing and brushing. Patient home care is important, however, many predisposing factors exist that patients don’t have control over. These include hereditary factors and other diseases that can lead to gum disease and decay placing your oral health at risk. Therefore, it is necessary to have your teeth cleaned and checked regularly, (recare) by a dentist. The frequency of your recare appointments will vary depending on your needs. By gathering information about the health of your gums and teeth we can customize a recare frequency that is right for you. Ensuring that you have a bright, beautiful, healthy smile for years to come is a lot easier if you take the steps to make sure potential problems are caught early and dealt with before they get out of hand.
