Preventative Treatment

Preventive treatment in dentistry involves proactive measures aimed at safeguarding oral health and averting potential dental issues before they escalate. This proactive approach encompasses regular dental check-ups, during which dentists assess the condition of the teeth and gums, identify early signs of problems, and provide personalized guidance on maintaining a healthy smile.

Professional cleanings, along with personalized oral hygiene education, form a vital component of preventive treatment to remove plaque and tartar, reducing the risk of cavities and gum disease. Additional preventive interventions may include the application of dental sealants to protect vulnerable tooth surfaces and fluoride treatments to strengthen enamel. By embracing preventive treatments, individuals not only enhance their oral well-being but also establish a foundation for long-term dental health, minimizing the need for extensive restorative procedures.

While at-home oral care is essential, professional dental cleaning, every six months, or as individually recommended by Dr. Jenny Doerksen and her team members are crucial for maintaining optimal oral health and preventing dental problems.

Dr. Jenny Doerksen and her dental team believe in educating parents on proper oral hygiene practices, including brushing, flossing, and diet choices to promote good oral health. They also provide guidance on preventing dental problems and maintaining healthy teeth and gums.
