Brushing, flossing and regular visits to the dentist office are all apart of maintaining your oral health. Preventative dental care may be the optimal way to prevent gum disease, avoid tooth decay, and catch oral cancer early. Being proactive means taking initiative to schedule routine cleanings and practicing proper brushing and flossing techniques. Pinehurst dentists Dr. Clement Monroe & Dr. Kamron Monroe provide comprehensive consultations and oral health exams.
Preventative Care Dentist Visits
Regular dental cleanings are important. Dental cleanings remove excess plaque buildup and bacteria that forms in small spaces in your teeth and gums. Brushing and flossing are essential parts of your at home dental hygiene routine, but they just can not reach the most remote regions of your mouth.
Routine Oral health exams offer more than just a thorough cleaning. Regular dentist visits may detect your probability of developing complex oral health concerns and even other complex health conditions. Early diagnosis can help to avoid costly and time consuming advanced restorative and cosmetic dental procedures and preserve more of your natural smile.
Our doctors and compassionate dental care team treat each patient as the most important person in the dentist office. Every dentist visit our team will take time to speak with you and hear your dental concerns.
