Sacramento area dentist describes preventive dentistry
The smile is the first impression given to others. It can make or break a meeting with a complete stranger or potential client for work. This is why it is so important for patients to take good care of their smiles and connect with a dental team that understands how essential it is to maintain natural teeth and gums. While many patients feel as though cosmetic dentistry is here to help them, the real reward is with preventative care. Preventative dentistry is at the forefront of what we do in the practice of Drs. Kosta J. Adams and Kristen J. Adams.
Drs. Kosta J. Adams and Kristen J. Adams work closely with their patients to help them prevent the development of dental problems including periodontal disease and tooth decay. Both of these are common issues that can easily be addressed with proactive dental care. This is why patients are urged to care for their smiles by brushing and flossing every day while maintaining regular six-month recall appointments for examinations and cleanings. This is just one step in preventative care, as it allows patients to maintain their smiles between visits with our dental team.
There are other steps that can be taken to keep the teeth protected. Patients can have sealants put on their teeth to reduce the likelihood of developing cavities. This can also be achieved with fluoride applications. Both can be used to maintain a healthier smile and are often used on children who may not have as good of dental health habits as an older child, teenager, or adult.
Preventative dentistry is essential for making sure patients have access to the treatments necessary for a healthier smile. Contact our team today to book an appointment with Drs. Kosta J. Adams and Kristen J. Adams to learn about preventative solutions for a more proactive approach to dental care. In addition to keeping the smile healthy, we also want patients to have a smile they can be proud of and confident with, which is why we also offer aesthetic dentistry and restorative solutions.
