Preventive Dental Care Services
Preventive dental care in Payson, Utah, is seen in numerous aspects of our dentistry. For every patient’s smile, we can use our knowledge and expertise to prevent further dental issues. Your dental concerns, desires, and goals will be addressed very thoroughly during a consultation with our dentist. We choose to use non-fluoride options in place of traditional fluoride because we have a significant amount of patients who choose to stay fluoride free. We use CTX Gel in place of fluoride during your dental cleaning and have had amazing results! During your preventative visit, it will allow Dr. Storey to use his deep concern of patient’s health to formulate a treatment plan made just for you. Please contact our team to learn more about our preventive care. The goal of preventive care is to protect your smile from damage caused by tooth decay, periodontal disease (gum disease), and other damaging dental conditions. Preventive dentistry works to prevent these diseases before they cause damage that requires repair. We offer a number of preventive dental treatments to help you keep your smile in the best possible health. These services include dental sealants and dental cleanings; visiting our office regularly ensures that we detect and treat any early signs of damage before they become more extensive and painful. There are several steps you can take to prevent cavities and tooth decay. Our dentist recommends that you follow these guidelines to help minimize your chances for developing cavities:
- Brush and floss your teeth every day. You should brush at least twice a day and floss at least once a day. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a fluoridated toothpaste.
- Maintain a balanced, healthy diet with a limited amount of very sugary or acidic foods.
- Visit our office at least twice a year for a routine teeth cleaning and dental exam.
- Ask your dentist about dental sealants and fluoride treatment to see if they are right for your smile.
