One of the primary focuses of our Buffalo dental practice is preventative care. Preventative dentistry is intended to help you avoid common oral health issues such as tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease through regular cleanings and targeted treatments. While there is never a guarantee against oral health issues, preventative dentistry is one of the best ways to make sure your teeth and gums remain healthy for a lifetime.
Your role in preventative dentistry is simple: adopt a good at-home oral hygiene routine. This includes brushing your teeth with fluoride toothpaste after every meal and snack, along with flossing once or twice a day.
You can further help prevent common oral health issues by not smoking, avoiding excessive alcohol consumption, and reducing your intake of sugary foods and beverages. These steps not only help prevent dental issues, they can greatly improve your general health as well.
Our role in preventative dentistry is providing thorough teeth cleanings and evaluations. You should visit Buffalo dentist Dr. Evola every six months to have your teeth professionally cleaned and your entire mouth examined for signs of potential issues. This, combined with your at-home routine, is often enough to keep your natural teeth strong, healthy, and beautiful for years to come.
