Allow Able Family Dental to be your partners in preventive dental care and achieving optimal oral health! We recommend regular dental cleanings and exams to spot oral health conditions as early as possible.
We lose our primary teeth throughout our childhood years, and over the course of adolescence and adulthood, our permanent, adult teeth come in. After this set, there are no more teeth scheduled to arrive in this lifetime, which is why preventive dental care is so critical to the longevity of your oral health! There’s more to a smile than just the cosmetic aspects – we’re concerned with your oral and overall health. Preventative dentistry is an on-going commitment to maintaining healthy teeth and gums, and just so happens to be the best way to avoid expensive dental work caused by neglect, leading to tooth decay and infection.
When you visit Able Family Dental for your regular dental exams and cleanings, our team will do our best to leave your mouth super-clean. We will check the state of your existing restorations, including current fillings, crowns, and bridges, to ensure that they are all in optimal condition and more. However, between visits, the rest is entirely up to you! Remember to brush your teeth twice a day, and floss to get rid of any food between your teeth that brushing may have missed. We recommend using a soft-bristled brush that’s easy on the gums – also, try and swap out your toothbrush once every 3 months.
