What is preventive dentistry?

Preventive dentistry in Bellevue, NE, is the cornerstone of our dental practice and one of the best ways to protect your dental health and your overall well-being.

Preventive dentistry includes your bi-annual teeth cleanings and checkups, which protect you from several concerns like gum disease and tooth decay. During your examination, your dentist screens you for early signs of trouble, allowing you to be proactive about problems before they become significant concerns.

For example, if your dentist detects tooth decay as early as possible, they will recommend a simple filling to treat it. However, if that decay is left untreated or undiagnosed, it can move deeper into your tooth and cause more damage, decay, and even result in an infection in some cases.

Gum Disease Treatment & Prevention

Periodontal treatment is another aspect of preventive dentistry. For example, treating gum disease helps patients manage their dental health and even reverse the condition in some cases where it's detected early on.

Your bi-annual teeth cleanings and checkups can help protect your dental health and well-being while saving you time and money in the long term.
