Cleanings and Prevention - Encinitas Family Dentistry - Mario A. Godinez, DDS
A preventive program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental staff to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions. At Mario A. Godinez, DDS, in addition to your dental treatment plan, we make sure to educate our patients on proper oral care and maintenance at home. Having good oral hygiene and a balanced diet play key roles in maintaining your healthy smile.
The efforts to care for your teeth are continued in the dental office by your Encinitas dentist and dental hygienist to promote, restore, and maintain your oral health.
At your dental appointments with Dr. Godinez, you can receive regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Sealants and fluoride are also great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth.
Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident, beautiful smile.
