The importance of preventive dentistry

Preventive dentistry is a unique approach to oral health. Instead of being reactive about oral health issues such as periodontal disease and cavities, our team at Wahlen Dentistry encourages Perry, Utah, patients to be proactive about their smiles. This plays a vital role in helping patients achieve and maintain proper oral health and wellness–and keep problems such as decay and disease at bay!

What are the primary benefits of preventive dental services?

Our team at Wahlen Dentistry encourages patients to be proactive about caring for their smiles for several reasons. Below are just some of the advantages of improved oral health and preventative dentistry:

  • Early detection of dental problems. With regular check-ups and cleanings at Wahlen Dentistry, Drs. Jennifer Wahlen and John Torghele can catch any potential issues before they become more serious. This can save you from requiring more extensive and expensive treatments in the future
  • Maintaining good oral health. Practicing preventative dentistry can prevent common dental problems, including cavities and gum disease. This keeps your mouth and teeth healthy, functional, and pain-free. Excellent oral health is also linked to better overall health and well-being
  • Saves time and money. By preventing dental problems, you can avoid costly and time-consuming procedures that may result from neglecting your oral health
