Why is Preventive Dental Care important?

Preventive Dental Care involves regular dental exams to help protect your oral health and general well being. It also involves promoting optimal tooth and gum health through patient education of adopting good oral hygiene practices to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. In having good oral hygiene, patients can avoid cavities, gingivitis (inflammation of gum tissue), periodontal disease (gum disease), and enamel loss.
