The Preventive Program

Posted Sep 7th, 2016 in Oral Health Care & Prevention, General

The Preventive Program

Both natural teeth and teeth with restorations survive best in an oral environment that is clean and where the intake of harmful foods is controlled. Our preventive oral care program is designed to help prevent new cavities, preserve teeth that have been restored and manage periodontal disease.


At the initial visit, oral hygiene instructions are reviewed and are reinforced at subsequent recall visits.

The following are helpful recommendations:

  • Brush your teeth twice a day in a circular motion with a soft bristled toothbrush aimed at the gum
  • Floss every night in an up and down motion while keeping the floss in a U-shape and against the tooth surface
  • Avoid smoking
  • Avoid sticky sugary foods
  • Eat a balanced diet
  • Use antiseptic and fluoride rinses as directed
  • Sealants placed on young permanent teeth
