Preventing Dental Problems

Preventive dentistry is about helping you maintain healthy teeth and gums and preventing future dental problems. Preventive dentistry is a combination of ongoing professional hygiene procedures and daily at-home practices to prevent tooth decay and other dental diseases and conditions from appearing. The best preventive care combines your at-home care with Dr. Gage's chair-side treatments and education.

The American Dental Association recommends at least two dental checkups each year including professional cleanings. This can help Dr. Gage and her team stop dental disease in its earliest stages, which protects your smile and controls your dental expenses now and for the future.Dr. Gage helps patients prevent dental problems with custom mouth guards to protect against teeth grinding (bruxism) and sports guards to protect against athletic injuries or trauma, plus:

  • Comprehensive periodontal exams
  • Regular dental cleanings (at least twice each year)
  • Regular dental exams (at least twice each year)
  • Oral cancer screenings
  • Fluoride treatments
  • Routine re-care

Dr. Gage also counsels patients about using sealants and bonding to protect teeth, along with proper diet, reducing sugar and sugary beverages, quitting smoking and limiting alcohol consumption, which can lead to discoloration of teeth and damage to tooth enamel. In addition, she uses digital X-ray technology and intraoral cameras to make more accurate diagnoses and improve treatment precision.
