What is preventive dentistry?
Just as the name implies, preventive dentistry helps prevent problems with your teeth and gums from developing, like cavities and gingivitis. Being proactive in taking care of your teeth and coming in for regular check-ups reduces the chances of you needing restorative services now or later in life.
Preventing injury to your teeth and gums while playing sports is another way to proactively care for your smile.
