Preventative Dentistry Point Richmond, CA
Prevent disease and decay through preventative dentistry.
Preventative dentistry means to take care of all the routine cleaning and tooth maintenance, before cavities and tooth decay ever have a chance to form. With proper medical care and direction, we can reach this goal with all our patients.
As we do our part with regular cleanings and health assessments, don’t forget that the most important care is the everyday routine of brushing and flossing. So, read below to brush up on some oral health information and tips!
Good for more than just your teeth!
When you visit our Point Richmond dental office for that routine hygiene appointment, our team does a lot more than just probe for cavities. In addition to caring for your teeth, we’re giving you the next best thing to a complete physical examination. If it’s been a while since you’ve seen your family physician, it just could prove a lifesaver!
How’s that possible?
Your mouth is a unique meeting place of teeth, skin, muscle, fluids, and germs. It gives us the chance to look inside your body without surgery. Over forty serious diseases, including bulimia, tumors, and AIDS, can be detected in the mouth. The texture, color, and condition of your tongue and gums can be evidence of high blood pressure or osteoporosis.
That’s why we encourage you to make at least two dental appointments every year, especially if you don’t get annual physical examinations.
We’re here to make sure your teeth stay in great shape. Along with the rest of your body.
