Comprehensive Preventative Care from a Distinguished Dentistry Team
WHY PREVENTATIVE DENTISTRY?
Preventing gum disease as well as tooth decay is a top priority at our practice. Even if you are diligently brushing and flossing your teeth every day, you may end up with some tartar buildup in areas that are hard to reach or develop cavities. Dr. Christel and Dr. Micah Westmorland offer preventive dentistry services to ensure all our patients receive the care they need to prevent many common dental health problems.
KEYS TO PREVENTION
We are committed to educating patients about preventive care and are always here to provide tips and advice on proper cleaning, brushing and oral care techniques. Both of our doctors like to see patients as early as the age of 5 so that children adopt good oral care habits early on. We take extra steps to prevent gum disease and cavities at a young age so children grow up with strong and healthy teeth and gums. We encourage:
- Brushing daily
- Flossing daily
- Using the right type of toothbrush
- Using proper brushing techniques
- Eating a well-balanced diet
- Eliminating or reducing tobacco use
- Seeing a dentist regularly
- Professional cleanings on schedule
