Preventative Dental Health Care

78619670Preventative dental health is a focus on those procedures and life practices that help people to prevent the beginning or progression of oral disease, which is almost entirely avoidable through preventative dental health care. Proper dental care can be your first line of defense against a variety of conditions. With a strong emphasis on prevention, University Place Family and Cosmetic Dentistry is truly focused on improving the quality of life by preventing dental diseases.

In addition to the things you do at home, preventive dentistry also encompasses what is done by our dental staff here in our University Place office. We help patients maintain healthy teeth and gums. The objective is to stop the development of oral disease or to find it at an early stage. We look for early signs of periodontal disease, dental decay and other changes in the soft tissue of the mouth that could lead to oral cancer.
