Preventative Dentistry at Green Spring Dental Care
The best thing you can do for your gums and teeth is to invest the time and effort into preventative efforts that reduce the chances of cavities, tooth decay, and gum disease. While genetics and other factors play a vital role in the health of your gums and teeth, overwhelming evidence suggests that taking preventive measures through preventative dentistry is the best way to preserve the health of your teeth and gums for the entirety of your life.
Preventative dentistry in Lutherville, MD, includes procedures and practices aimed at stopping issues from having a chance to arise in the first place. It starts with you and your daily dental hygiene habits, including brushing and flossing twice daily, reducing the number of sugary foods you eat or drink, and taking other measures like using mouthwash or brushing right after you eat.
But while nothing replaces habits like the above, the next step for taking care of your gums is getting preventive examination and treatment from your dentist. At Green Spring Dental Care, we provide several preventive procedures. We may recommend preventative treatments depending on what we see, but you should also ask us questions about any of the below to learn more. One of the best things is that insurances often cover 100% of many treatments and practices designed to prevent more costly issues from coming up.
