Why choose us for your dental care?
Preventative Dentistry in St. Thomas, ON
Preventing dental problems is often the most cost-effective and easiest way to keep your mouth and body healthy. Preventative dentistry is a collaboration between you and your dentist in an effort to keep your mouth as healthy as possible and includes both at-home care and in-office care.
At-Home Preventative Care
Brushing and flossing are at the forefront of your at-home care routine. Proper techniques are foundational in maintaining healthy teeth and gums. A low sugar diet increases your chances of a healthy smile because it limits the amount of decay-causing bacteria. We will work with you to ensure you have the necessary tools to develop an optimal at-home care regimen.
In-Office Preventative Care
No matter how effective you are at taking care of your teeth and gums at home, it is impossible to completely cover every surface and eliminate 100% of the harmful bacteria. Regular dental exams can catch problems fast and lead to less pain, less costly solutions, and quicker healing times. By scheduling regular checkups, your dentist can also make suggestions to adjust your at-home care based upon examination results.
Our job is to show you what we see in your mouth, educate you on your options, and let you make the best decision for yourself. We never push unnecessary treatments and always give you options.
