Family Preventative Care
Tooth decay and gum disease are the one and two most common diseases on earth and thus effect more people than any other disease. It is important to have your teeth cleaned routinely to help prevent these diseases and to maintain healthy teeth, gums and a great smile.
We recommend periodic cleanings to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
How often is right for you?
Most people get their teeth cleaned every six months but some have special problems and may need to have them cleaned at three to four month intervals. It isimportant to customize treatment to fit the needs of the individual. It is important, easier and less costly to prevent diseases than to treat them once they happen.
X-rays are also taken at intervals based on your need. Our x-rays at Lakeside Family Dentistry are digital and operate at 1/3 the dose of conventional x-rays which reduces your exposure.
