What is Preventive Dentistry?

Preventive dentistry is a proactive approach to oral health, aimed at maintaining a healthy mouth and avoiding serious dental issues. It involves regular dental check-ups, cleanings, and habits like brushing and flossing to prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health problems. Dr. Vanessa Leon puts preventive care at the forefront of her practice philosophy. She's dedicated to helping patients maintain optimal oral health and prevent dental issues before they occur.

How often should I visit the dentist for a check-up?

The ADA recommends getting a routine dental check-up and cleaning every six months. However, depending on your specific dental health needs, we may suggest more frequent visits. Regular dental preventive visits allow us to monitor your oral health and detect potential issues early, prevent dental diseases, and keep your smile bright and healthy.

Can oral health affect overall health?

The answer is a resounding “yes.” Your oral health is a window to your overall health. Poor oral hygiene can lead to dental issues like gum disease and tooth decay, which can, in turn, have serious health implications. Research has shown links between oral health issues and heart disease, diabetes, respiratory disease, and even premature birth. At Lake Underhill Dental Studio, we believe in a complete approach to dental care, and that begins with helping you understand the importance of your oral health in maintaining your overall health!
