Preventive dental care is a method for maintaining optimal oral health by preventing problems from occurring in the first place. If problems do develop, they can be caught early and treated promptly before becoming worse. If you are not visiting the dentist regularly, such problems can be missed until they become more serious and are more difficult to treat.
Seeing a Tampa dentist regularly for an exam and professional teeth cleaning helps prevent a host of oral health problems, including gum disease.
