Professional Preventative Dentistry At Michael Kim DDS
What Is Preventative Dentistry?
Preventative dentistry involves establishing habits that will keep your teeth healthy and avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and more. During your regular visit at Michael Kim DDS, your dental hygienist will point out any issues that you may be having with your oral hygiene. Your hygienist will perform a cleaning, dental exam, an oral cancer exam, and perform any necessary X-rays. We will also evaluate the appearance of your teeth and recommend any aesthetic procedures that will enhance your smile, such as cosmetic or orthodontic procedures. Since we began serving patients in Mequon, and , Wisconsin as well as the surrounding areas, our goal has been a whole body health approach.
What You Can Do To Prevent Tooth Decay
Establishing at-home oral hygiene habits is essential to keeping your teeth healthy. Brushing twice a day for at least two minutes and flossing after eating will help to remove plaque and decay. Plaque is difficult to remove and the best at-home habits may not be enough to keep it a bay. This is why it is so important to schedule regular dental visits and allow our trained staff of oral hygienists to catch any problems that may be lurking before they manifest themselves.
