Preventative Dentistry Keeps Future Problems at Bay
There is an old adage that says “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” At Belle Meade Family Dentistry, we believe that motto applies to dental care. That is why we focus on preventative dentistry to stop problems before they start.
Prevention in dentistry is an important part of keeping the mouth healthy for a lifetime. Patients can actually play a huge part of this prevention by being vigilant about the care of their teeth and gums when they are not at the dental office. For instance, brushing and flossing twice a day can ward off cavities. Plus, proper nutrition can strengthen soft and hard tissues. Every individual has the ability to play a huge role in long-term dental success.
