Prevent decay and damage to your teeth with preventative dentistry in San Antonio, Texas. Our dentists can help treat patients before their small problems become big ones. If you would like to learn more about how to avoid decay, disease or other common issues, ask Dr. Alejandro Martinez or Dr. Sarah McMahan at Great White Dental. They can go over at-home habits as well as in-office treatments to help improve your oral health.
Along with routine visits to our office for teeth cleanings and dental exams, it is also necessary that you practice proper oral hygiene habits at home in order to prevent oral health issues like tooth decay, periodontal disease (gum disease) and other damaging dental conditions. By seeing you regularly, our dental team can detect any signs of dental decay and disease early on and provide prompt treatment before any significant damage to your teeth, gums or other oral structures occurs. This helps you avoid any additional discomfort and costly services down the road. Proper oral hygiene habits that can minimize cavity development include brushing at least twice every day with fluoridated toothpaste, flossing every day, reducing the amount of acidic and sugary foods you eat, and maintaining a healthy diet.
