Prevention

Take steps to protect your dental well-being.

You know what they say about an ounce of prevention…

At Arden Dental Group, we are committed to helping you and your family stay in the best of health. With our focus on dental wellness, Drs. Deines, Huffman, Clark and Younger provide preventive care in Arden, North Carolina.

We encourage you to visit every six months for a regular dental cleaning and exam. If required, our dentists will recommend other preventive and restorative dental treatments so you can maintain optimal oral health.

The goal of preventive care is to protect your smile from damage caused by tooth decay, periodontal (gum) disease and other damaging dental conditions. Preventive dentistry works to identify and treat these diseases before they cause damage that requires repair. We offer a number of preventive dental treatments to help you keep your smile at its best, including dental sealants and professional cleanings.

What can you do to prevent cavities and tooth decay? Our dentists recommend that you follow these guidelines:

  • Brush and floss your teeth every day. You should brush at least twice a day and floss at least once a day. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a fluoridated toothpaste.
  • Maintain a balanced, healthy diet with limited sugary or acidic foods.
  • Visit our office at least twice a year for a routine teeth cleaning and dental exam.
  • Ask about dental sealants and fluoride treatment to see if they are right for your smile.

Call us to learn more about our preventive care and schedule an appointment for your dental cleaning and exam today.

We look forward to protecting your smile!
