Cleaning & Prevention

Regular teeth cleanings and dental exams are critical for preventing mouth diseases and other dental issues that could become big problems later on. We recommend coming to see our Raleigh dentist twice a year for routine cleanings and preventative exams, but there are a number of other measures you can take at home to help prevent dental disease.

Preventing dental disease starts at home. Practicing a good oral hygiene daily and eating a well-balanced diet are some simple ways you can help keep your mouth healthy. Your Raleigh dentist also contributes to your oral health prevention efforts by cleaning, maintaining, and restoring your teeth.

Your prevention routine should also include regular dental exams, cleanings, and dental x-rays. Sealants and fluoride are also great preventive treatments that can help protect your teeth. Talk to our Raleigh dentist about using a fluoride rinse that’s right for you.

We can’t stress enough how important dental prevention is for your oral health, but by preventing dental diseases, you’re not only protecting your mouth. You’re also protecting yourself from heart disease, stroke, and other conditions.
