Maintaining oral health and wellness with Preventive Dentistry

Taking care of the smile is more than just brushing and flossing your teeth. It’s also visiting the dentist regularly for a cleaning and evaluation. It is also participating in proactive, preventative dentistry. That means taking a proactive approach to maintaining the health of the smile. Drs. Michelle and Glenn Taylor of Taylor Dental Care in Sandy, Utah, are here to help patients understand how to achieve and maintain oral health and wellness with preventative care. 

What is the goal of preventative dentistry? 

The primary goal of preventive care is to ensure that patients do not suffer from certain conditions such as tooth decay and periodontal disease. These conditions can damage the health of the smile while also causing irreversible damage. By visiting the dentist regularly and learning how to care for the smile between appointments, patients can maintain healthy smiles and protect their oral health.

What is laser dentistry, and how does laser dentistry work? 

In addition to providing cleanings and evaluations, our team at Taylor Dental Care also provides laser therapies. Lasers are used to treat bacteria which might contribute to the development of periodontal disease later on. They are also an excellent solution for gum contouring or other soft tissue procedures. Laser dentistry uses laser light to perform treatments that used to be done with traditional dental tools.
