What do we mean when we talk about preventive dentistry?
We are talking about the practice of keeping a healthy mouth. The main reason for going to the dentist regularly, is prevention this means you will need fewer dental treatments in your appointments.
How can I practice preventive dentistry?
Preventive dentistry can be practiced in the form of daily brushing and annual dental cleanings. These practices are designed to ensure that teeth are clean, strong, and white.
· Daily brushing and flossing
· Dental cleaning and polishing along with check-ups with your dentist every 6 months.
Benefits of preventive Dentistry
· Less time in the dental chair

If I am already taking good care of my teeth why do I need to go to the dentist?
Your dentist can check the problems that you may not be able to see or feel.
Many dental problems do not become visible or cause discomfort and pain until they are in advanced stages. Because of this, at Dental Zone we believe prevention is always better than treatment.
