At the office of Great Lakes Dental Group, we emphasize taking a preventive approach as the best way to maintain a healthy, beautiful smile. By coming to our office as recommended for checkup visits and routine care, we can help every member of your family prevent both the onset and progression of many oral health problems. As skilled and experienced providers of care, we offer a comprehensive preventive program, including examinations, professional teeth cleanings, and oral cancer screenings, along with patient education on hygiene, diet, and healthy practices.
Preventive care begins at home, with brushing, flossing, and limiting your consumption of sugary foods. These steps prevent plaque buildup and the harmful byproducts of bacteria that reside within the dental plaque from damaging your teeth and gums. However, it’s essential to keep in mind that good oral hygiene, a nutritious diet, and a healthy lifestyle are not all there is to maintaining optimal oral health. Routine dental checkups and professional cleanings are needed to ensure that your smile remains in tip-top condition and that any developing problems receive the prompt care they require. And, because children are especially vulnerable to developing cavities, we offer dental sealants and options in dental fluoride treatments or supplements as an added level of protection to shield their teeth from decay.
Our goal is to help you and every member of your family establish healthy practices that will last a lifetime. Patient education is also an important part of our comprehensive program of preventive care. We take the time to provide every one of our patients with detailed guidance on the best techniques for caring for their teeth at home.
