Why Preventative Dental Appointments Are Important

Preventative dental appointments are essential for maintaining good oral health. During these visits, our dentist in La Verne will perform a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and mouth to check for any signs of dental problems such as cavities, gum disease, or oral cancer.

By detecting dental problems early, we can prevent them from becoming more serious oral health issues down the road. Additionally, preventative dental appointments can help you avoid costly dental procedures by treating them at the earliest stages. In some cases, concerns like gum infections or tooth demineralization are reversible when caught early enough.

What Happens During a Preventative Dental Appointment?
