Preventive dentistry focuses on protecting the teeth and gums from infection, disease and other types of damage. By preventing, addressing or catching these issues early on, our dentists can help patients avoid more serious problems later in life. Small problems can quickly develop into big ones, which is why we recommend coming to Clear Dental if you notice any changes in your smile.
We believe that the best way to take care of your smile is to prevent problems before they happen. There are several ways to do this and we recommend contacting us at (907) 313-2433 if you have any questions. Our dentists will most often recommend the following tips for keeping your smile healthy:
- Take the time to brush your teeth at least twice a day. Make sure you use a toothpaste that contains fluoride and a toothbrush with soft bristle.
- Floss between teeth at least once a day.
- Keep your diet healthy and make sure you are getting the vitamins and nutrients you need. Limit your sugar intake and avoid acidic foods when possible.
- Plan regular appointments and checkups with our dentists at least every six months.
In addition to these steps, our dentists may recommend preventive treatments, such as fluoride or dental sealants, to help protect your smile. If you are worried about your smile, plan an appointment for preventive dentistry in Anchorage, Alaska.
