Preventive Care

Preventive dental care is the practice of keeping your teeth and gums healthy. The goal is to prevent cavities, gum disease, and enamel wear along with other many detrimental dental issues.

At Fox Family Dental prevention is the cornerstone of our practice. In addition to helping your overall health, we can help you stay cavity free, disease free, and keep your costs down with preventive services.

The most important step in preventive health is what you do on a daily basis. Brushing twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste, flossing, using a waterpik, brushing your tongue, and eating a balance low-sugar diet are many things you can do at home to prevent issues.

Routine dental cleanings with our hygienists, necessary x-rays and check -ups assist in maintaining a healthy mouth. We assess the health of your teeth and gums and help remove bacteria. This helps keep the foundation of your mouth strong.

Routine x-rays are utilized to detect problems in between teeth and under existing dental work, and areas not visible by the human eye. Our office has the latest technology and uses digital radiographs that have a very limited exposure of radiation.

With children, it’s very important for daily homecare and routine dental check-ups as their adult teeth need to stay health throughout the developing stages. Sealants are another preventive service to fill in deep crevices where cavities can form. Fluoride treatments are an added helpful preventive service that aids in keeping teeth strong to fight against sugar and decay.
