Preventive care is key to a healthy smile! Our dentists have developed a preventive program to help keep your mouth and smile healthy and minimize your risk of tooth decay, gum disease and other problems. We invite you to call us at 707-996-6704 to schedule your appointment with Dr. Lisa Halliday or Dr. Tom Halliday and learn more about the benefits of our preventive program in Sonoma, California.
Preventive care includes both professional, in-office treatments as well as your oral hygiene routine at home. Research has shown that good dental hygiene is not only essential for your oral health but also for your overall health and wellbeing. Our preventive program is designed to provide comprehensive care that improves both your oral and overall health.
We recommend that you visit our office every six months for a dental cleaning and exam. This professional preventive care allows us to remove plaque, tartar and other debris from areas of your mouth where normal brushing and flossing cannot reach. It also allows our dentists to monitor your oral health so that any developing problems can be diagnosed and treated as early as possible.
During these regular visits, we will review your oral hygiene routine at home with you, and we may make recommendations on ways that you can improve your at-home care. We may also provide instruction on the best ways to brush and floss your teeth. Some of the things you can do at home to maintain good oral health include:
- Brushing at least twice each day
- Flossing daily
- Maintaining a healthy diet and limiting your intake of sugary and acidic foods
Additional preventive treatments, such as dental sealants and fluoride treatment, are available as needed.
