At the office of Andrew Cohen, DMD, we are committed to helping you be as healthy as you choose to be. Our caring dentist and team know that the key to keeping your mouth and smile healthy is preventive care, and we work with you to help you avoid dental problems so that you can enjoy all the benefits of good oral health and a beautiful smile.
The goal of preventive dentistry is to help you protect your smile from tooth decay, gum disease, and other damaging dental conditions. Preventive dentistry works to stop these problems before they can develop and cause damage to your teeth and supporting oral structures. Preventive care incorporates both professional in-office treatments as well as your dental home care and nutrition.
Here are a few tips about things that you can do to keep your smile healthy:
- Brush and floss daily. You should brush at least twice each day and floss at least once. This keeps your teeth and gums free from harmful bacteria and plaque.
- Visit our office regularly. Routine dental cleanings and exams help us monitor your oral health, keep your mouth clean and provide prompt treatment for any developing problems.
- Maintain a balanced diet. Eating a nutritious and balanced diet and limiting the amount of sugary and acidic foods and drinks you consume helps keep harmful bacteria from developing in your mouth, and contributes to your overall health and wellbeing.
- Ask our dentist about other preventive treatments. Treatments like sealants and fluoride are not only for children and are available if your teeth are at greater risk of tooth decay or other problems.
