What Is Preventative Dentistry?
Our team believes in dentistry that prevents dental disease and other conditions from worsening. Preventative dentistry emphasizes the importance of ongoing hygiene and daily practices to prevent future problems. It’s most effective when combined with at-home oral care and chairside treatments by dental professionals. When you visit ProGrin Dental every six months for a check-up and professional cleaning, this allows our dentists to catch any issues in their early stages, protecting your smile and limiting your expenses.

Why Preventative Dentistry Matters
If you avoid the dentist and don’t take care of your smile, you risk digging into your pockets and spending thousands of dollars on restorative dental care. Just how much? Full mouth reconstruction can cost between $45,000 – $80,000! That doesn’t have to happen when practicing preventative dentistry.
Preventative dentistry is also known as comprehensive dentistry, which involves your dentists looking at the entire picture of your dental health. Instead of just looking at the surface symptoms and providing a quick fix, we examine what causes the dental problem and then develop a total and permanent solution. We’ll come up with a lifetime plan to get your smile healthy – and keep it healthy.
