A preventive program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental staff to preserve the health of gums and teeth as well as ward off dental diseases and conditions.
Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet. That's why it is so important for children to establish good oral hygiene habits at home from a young age. Prevention is then continued in the dental office at Little Smiles of Roselle Park to promote, restore, and maintain your child's oral health.
Prevention also includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Sealants and fluoride are also great preventive treatments for children that help protect the teeth.
Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident, beautiful smile.
