In our office we treat prevention as our number one priority. We believe in the old saying "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." In dentistry, there is so much that we can do to prevent gum disease and tooth decay. We work hard to educate our patients so that they know what they can do at home for prevention and we recommend the treatments that are necessary for us to help them. Below are just a few procedures that make up our prevention program.
