How can I prevent cavities?
Preventive dentistry in Glendale, California includes several treatments aimed at preventing cavities and tooth decay. Dental sealants and fluoride treatment help to protect your teeth from cavities. It is also essential to maintain a good oral hygiene routine, which should include brushing your teeth at least twice a day, flossing every day, and eating a balanced diet. We encourage you to visit our dental office every six months for a regular dental cleaning and exam, which further helps to prevent tooth decay and allows us to detect any signs of decay at the earliest possible stage. We use digital dental X-rays to identify decay and cavities at the beginning stages. For more information on how we can prevent cavities and other dental problems, we welcome you to call us today.
