The importance of proactive care

Traditionally, patients may have only visited the dentist when toothaches and other problems arose. We believe that it is just too late to be seeing us for exams and other services. Such reactive dentistry is associated with more traumatic dentistry, as well as time-consuming and costly treatment. It is also less focused on preserving natural tissues and more focused on rebuilding tissues with dental materials or, worse yet, leaving gaps in the smile that hasten the process of destructive conditions like bone resorption (bone loss). 

Preventative dentistry, however, is often 100% covered by dental insurance. Even for those patients paying out of pocket, preventive services are largely a fraction of the cost of restorative services such as dental crowns, bridges, and implant-retained tooth replacement. Moreover, services that prevent rather than react to existing conditions are light touch, painless, gentle, convenient, and can be administered quickly.
