Preventive dental care is vital to maintaining your oral and overall health. At Dental Arts Group, our Voorhees dental office provides a comprehensive preventive program, which includes professional teeth cleanings, examination and oral cancer screenings. With early detection and intervention, our goal is to keep your smile healthy from the start, and to diagnose conditions early in their onset to provide prompt and effective care.
Preventive care begins at home, with brushing, flossing and limiting your consumption of sugary foods. These steps help to protect your teeth against the detrimental effects of plaque buildup. Plaque is a sticky film that continuously accumulates in your mouth and harbors harmful bacteria. In addition to your daily oral hygiene routine, it is important to visit our Voorhees dental office periodically for professional teeth cleaning, which allows us to remove plaque and tartar you may have missed while brushing. We strive to make your teeth cleaning an informative and educational experience, helping you and every member of your family establish a lifetime of healthy habits. For our youngest patients, we offer extra protection against cavities with fluoride treatments and dental sealants. Fluoride is a mineral that is applied to the surfaces of teeth to prevent the erosion of enamel, and dental sealants are protective coatings painted on the permanent molars to seal out plaque and food debris from depositing in the crevices. As part of a preventive visit for patients of all ages, our dentist performs a comprehensive examination of the teeth, gums and their supporting bone structure. If any conditions that are considered to be harmful to your oral health are detected, they will receive prompt and effective care.
At Dental Arts Group, we utilize state-of-the-art approaches to provide our patients with the highest quality of care. With periodic visits to our Voorhees dental office, you and your loves ones can maintain optimal oral health and beautiful smiles.
