Preventive Dental Care FAQ
What is preventive dental care?
To understand what exactly preventive dental care is, just focus on the word “prevent.” This type of dentistry is focused on preventing oral health problems like cavities, gum disease, and more. These services are meant to keep your teeth clean and protected from bad bacteria and damage.
How often should I get my teeth cleaned?
The standard recommendation is to get your teeth cleaned every six months. If you have certain dental conditions, your dentist may suggest you go more often, but a good rule of thumb is to keep up with your dental checkups twice a year.
How can my dentist treat chronic headaches?
While chronic headaches can be caused by a number of different things, one cause is grinding or clenching your teeth. If that’s the case with you, your dentist can make you an oral appliance to wear that relaxes your jaw and prevent headaches. We offer this service at our practice!
