Preventive care is key to keeping your mouth and smile healthy. At Louisiana Dental Center, we offer a variety of preventive treatments, including dental cleanings and exams, to help you keep your mouth healthy and ensure that you receive the treatments that you need to resolve problems as quickly as possible.
The goal of preventive care is to help you avoid problems such as tooth decay, gum disease and other damaging dental conditions. Preventive care works to stop these problems from developing or to halt them before they cause significant enough damage to require restorative treatments. By visiting our office regularly, you allow our dentists and team to monitor your oral health and diagnose and treat problems before they become more serious.
There are several things that you can do at home to prevent cavities and other problems. These things include:
- Brushing and flossing daily. You should brush at least twice a day and floss at least once a day.
- Continue to visit our office twice each year for cleanings and exams.
- Ask our dentists about other preventive treatments, such as dental sealants or fluoride.
- Maintain a balanced, nutritious diet and limit the amount of sugary and acidic foods you eat.
