Preventative Hygiene Maintenance

At Hagerstown Smiles Dental Care, we welcome patients of ALL AGES!

A preventive maintenance program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental hygienist to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions. 

Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet.  It is continued in the dental office by the efforts of your dentist and dental hygienist to promote, restore, and maintain your oral health. Prevention includes regular dental exams and hygiene visits, oral cancer screening, gum disease evaluation and digital x-rays. We will present you with a treatment recommendation that will help you achieve and maintain a healthy smiles for years to come. 

Sealants and fluoride are also great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth, especially for children. 

Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident, beautiful smile. After a detailed assessment we will make recommendations tailored to your goals, whether it be cosmetic, function, comfort or longevity.
