Preventative Dentistry at Mulkins Main Dental
Preventive maintenance is always a good plan. In dentistry it gives you the opportunity to provide instruction on the proper methods to use when brushing and flossing and to identify problems early when treatment is simpler.
Regular exams and x-rays identify factors that could lead to decay, tooth loss, periodontal disease and other issues. With a twice yearly check up, we can remove excess tartar and plaque and do a thorough exam of the gums.
Best Preventive Practices at Home
At home, the best way to prevent periodontal disease is simple:
- Use mouthwash
- Stay hydrated
- Minimize eating and drinking acidic beverages and foods.
These simple measures along with regular professional cleaning and examinations can prevent serious gum disease.
