Cleanings and Prevention
A preventive (recare) program is a joint cooperative effort between you and our team to preserve your natural teeth, gums, and bones of the oral area by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions.
Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet. It is continued in our dental office by the efforts of Dr. McMullin and the dental hygienists as they promote, restore, and maintain your oral health.
Regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays are all part of an effective prevention program. Other great preventive treatments include sealants and fluoride.
Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident, and beautiful smile.
