Many people fear going to the dentist. It does not have to be this way! We here at Priest Dental, believe proper dental care is one of the easiest things in your life. Patients can minimize their visits to the dentist by practicing preventive dentistry which helps protect against gum disease, tooth loss and other dental conditions. The dentist is not the only person that plays a role in preventing dental problems and disease. It starts at home with you!
Preventive dentistry helps patients avoid the costs and extensive procedures that are often needed to correct serious dental conditions. Maintaining dental health helps patients look and feel their best which contributes to overall health as well.
Preventing dental conditions requires a lifelong commitment that begins when the first tooth appears. While a child should see a dentist when the first tooth appears, proper dental hygiene starts at home with the parents. Parents play an important role in helping their children learn how to properly take care of their teeth. These habits are important to establish early so children know how to prevent dental problems.
