Cleanings & Prevention

A preventive program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental team to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions. At Heritage Oak Dental we want to preserve your natural dentition because we know it will provide you the best long term service when compared to even the most modern restorative dental procedures.

Cleanings & Prevention:

Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene, balanced diet, and a healthy lifestyle. It is continued in the dental office by the efforts of your dental home to promote, restore, and maintain your oral health.

Prevention includes regular dental exams, x-rays, and cleanings. Sealants and fluoride are also great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth and more than pay for themselves in avoiding future more invasive treatments. Besides prevention helping to avoid serious and costly dental problems, sound dental preventive treatments are the key to having a healthy, confident, and comfortable, smile.
