Why Practice Preventive Dental Care
Not only does practicing preventive dental care help keep your teeth healthy, but it may help keep your body healthy as well. Many patients have heard the expression the mouth is the gateway to the body; but what does that expression mean?
Recent studies have shown a correlation between gum disease and serious health concerns, such as stroke, diabetes, heart attack, and cardiovascular disease. Gum disease is a bacterial infection that affects the gums and teeth. If gum disease if left untreated, it may lead to complex health concerns that may require advanced treatment. Our goal is to avoid complex dental problems and equip patients with the tools and knowledge needed to maintain a healthy smile.
During your preventive dental care visits, patients will receive a professional dental cleaning which removes tartar and plaque buildup that regular brushing and flossing cannot reach. We use Cavitron® ultrasonic scaler to effectively clean teeth. We incorporate advanced methods and state of the art technology to help improve patient smiles and provide predictable results. To ensure your teeth are healthy, Dr. Cavallo will perform a comprehensive exam to check for any signs of complex dental problems. If treatment is needed to restore health to your teeth, Dr. Cavallo will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that addresses your dental needs. We offer a full range of cosmetic, restorative, and general dentistry services in our Woodbridge dental office.
