The main goal of preventive dentistry is to protect oral health against issues that may arise over time. There are a variety of steps that can be taken to reduce the risks of needing restorative care.
Along with at-home treatments, it is important to visit a dentist regularly. Even with the utmost care and attention paid on the part of the patient, there is no substitute for the knowledge and experience of dental professionals. After years in the dental industry, the team at Van Ness Family Dentistry has developed a keen sense for recognizing symptoms and warning signs that may turn into issues later on. It is not uncommon for our team of highly skilled professionals to notice an issue that the patient was not aware of.
At Van Ness Family Dentistry we pride ourselves on providing our patients with all the facts on hand. We believe that the best way to prevent issues down the line is through education. With all of your options in front of you, you can then decide what you would like to do to achieve your desired results. Though the choice is yours to make, you are not alone! We will answer any questions you may have and educate you on the potential pros and cons of the options.
