better than fixing problems

What is preventative dentistry?

Preventative or Preventive dentistry, as the name suggests, is aimed towards preventing problems from occurring, to minimize the need for restorative dentistry in the future. This is the best way to protect teeth and reduce dental costs. Even if a minor problem exists, this form of dentistry looks at treating the problem effectively in the early stages to prevent it from becoming worse and causing further concerns.

What preventative measures can I take?

The science of preventative dentistry is changing. It is no longer only brush and don’t eat sugar. Dr. McOmie is at the forefront of dental technology with new treatments to desensitize, eliminate bacteria, and maximize the strength of your enamel. We are also dedicated to screening for oral cancer on all of our patients.

We recommend that you visit us every six months for a regular dental check-up. Regular professional cleaning and dental examination can prevent more serious problems from occurring and enable you to maintain good oral health for longer.

Between visits, it’s important you take care of your teeth by brushing twice a day and flossing daily. It’s also a good idea to use an antiseptic mouthwash to eliminate germs, prevent gum disease and bad breath.
