Why Is Preventive Dentistry Important?
As the name suggests, preventive dentistry seeks to prevent problems, not treat or solve them. At Dr. Ronald Fuhrmann’s dental office, want want to help you keep your smile perfect for life. Preventive care will help make that happen, and it requires patients, the dentist, and office staff to work together to ensure good oral health and hygiene.
We believe in working with our patients to establish lifelong habits of dental care. Our preventive services include:
- Cleanings/exams--Every six months, we clean your teeth and keep track of what’s going on in your mouth. These cleanings allow us to treat problems early, and they prevent gum disease and tooth decay.
- Sealants--Especially for children, we can provide oral sealants to prevent decay.
- Fluoride treatments--Fluoride helps build strong teeth and lessens the risk of tooth decay.
Dr. Ronald Fuhrmann provides these and other preventive services at his Virginia Beach dental office. These treatments will help keep your smile perfect.
Whenever we recommend a treatment--cosmetic, restorative, or preventive--we work with you to make sure you understand exactly what is involved in that treatment. Your comfort and confidence is important to us as we work together to keep your smile perfect.
