Preventive dentistry is all that you should do to take care of your teeth and gums: brushing, flossing, eating a healthy diet, and scheduling regular continuing-care dental hygiene appointments. At Hampton Dentistry, we take great pride in our emphasis on “preventive dentistry”.
Preventive procedures, such as sealants, can prevent tooth decay. Regular dental checkups and oral cancer screenings can catch oral cancer at its most treatable stages. Treatments resulting from preventive dental procedures are designed to stop the process of the disease. Restorative dentistry, including the placement of fillings, crowns, and dental work, addresses tooth decay and tooth loss that can result from periodontal disease. Periodontal treatments help restore healthy gums and can prevent tooth loss.
