Preventive Dental Care and Your Oral Health

Preventive Dental Care Northborough MA At Apex Dental in Northborough, MA, we believe in educating our patients on the proper techniques and methods to maintain a healthy smile. We believe that preventive dental care should be practiced at home and in our office. Preventive dental care helps keep the teeth clean and minimizes your risks of developing complex dental problems. When patients don’t maintain optimal oral health, complex dental problems like gum disease, tooth decay, and even tooth loss can occur. Our goal at Apex Dental is to keep your smile healthy through comprehensive, personalized dentistry

Preventive Dental Care Northborough, MA

Our team of dentists is led by family dentist Dr. Robert Gauthier. At Apex Dental we offer cosmetic, restorative, and general dentistry services for adults and children in need of dental care. During your visit, one of our experienced dentists will perform a comprehensive exam to check for any signs of dysfunction. If we uncover any complex dental issues, we will plan a personalized treatment plan just for you. During your preventive care visit, you will also receive a professional dental cleaning performed by one of our highly trained dental hygienists.

We recommend that patients visit our office twice a year for preventive care exams. Preventive care visits allow our dentists to identify any dental issues before they become complex problems. If dental issues like gum disease are not treated, it can lead to tooth loss. We want to avoid the need for advanced treatment, so scheduling a preventive care visit can help save your teeth.

We also recommend that patients practice preventive care at home. Most dental problems are avoidable when you practice an excellent oral hygiene routine. Patients should brush twice a day, floss, and rinse with an ADA approved antibacterial mouthwash. Keeping your teeth clean can minimize plaque buildup which can stick to your teeth and cause tooth decay or gum disease. Keeping your smile clean can improve your overall oral health.
