Prevention

Charlottesville Dentists at Hollymead Dental Arts

At Hollymead Dental Arts, we believe that prevention the most important part of dental care and our most important goal. For many of us, there has been a time when our dentist has talked to us about our oral hygiene. Some of us need to brush more often, others need to be more diligent about flossing and maintaining gum health. In every case, the best prevention of costly dental procedures and emergencies is the the development of a solid dental hygiene routine from adolescence and throughout life. If you avoid regular visits to a dentist, conditions that begin with simple solutions can "snowball" into more complex problems with complicated and costly solutions. Your dental health is our top priority, and at Hollymead Dental Arts, we are eager to help you to maintain regular dental maintenance. Everyone can create and maintain a healthy and pain-free smile!

It is recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), to visit your dentist two to four times per year, depending on your needs. Routine dental checkups provide necessary cleanings to eliminate plaque or plaque that your toothbrush cannot reach, helping to prevent tooth decay. Routine dental visits also help your dentist to identify more serious dental emergencies like oral cancer before symptoms are noticeable. Studies have also discovered a relationship between periodontal disease and its effect on the circulatory system - your heart, kidneys, lungs - and other bodily systems. If you think of the mouth as the gateway to the body, you begin to understand why protecting it protects you!
