Preventive Care: The Cornerstone of a Healthy Smile
If you could stop a problem before it started, you would – right? Preventive dentistry from Southern Pines NC dentist Dr. Amy Moubry provides you with the opportunity to maintain a healthy smile for life. Studies show that good oral health is essential to good overall health. What’s the key? The power of prevention!
The Benefits of Preventive Dentistry
Taking care of your smile can pay off in big ways. By taking proactive measures against dental decay and disease, you increase your potential to save time and money in the future. Gum disease, tooth decay, and other dental conditions only worsen over time. Left untreated, they can wreak havoc with the way your smile looks, feels, and functions. Confidence can plummet, whole-body well-being diminishes, and your wallet can take a hit.
Attending regular checkups and cleanings at Moubry Family Dentistry represents a small commitment with regard to time and money and is your first step on the road to a lifetime of healthy smiles.
Your dental checkup lets Dr. Moubry assess the condition of your smile and set a baseline for comparison in the future. She’ll examine your teeth to check for decay, look for signs of gum disease, evaluate your jaw joint function and bite alignment, and perform an oral cancer check. Digital X-rays, taken as needed, provide a detailed view of oral structures.
Early intervention often results in conservative treatment to preserve your smile for a lifetime.
Cleanings are Key
A professional dental cleaning removes plaque from the surface of teeth and along the gumline to lessen the risk of gum disease. This chronic inflammatory condition starts in the mouth but can damage internal systems. Dementia, heart disease, stroke, low birth weight, and diabetes complications are just a few of the whole-body health problems associated with gum disease. Dental cleanings provide powerful protection to maintain healthy smiles and healthy bodies.
