We only get one set of adult teeth - a great reason why preventive dentistry is so important.
We lose our primary teeth throughout our childhood years, and over the course of adolescence and adulthood, our permanent, adult teeth come in. After this set, there are no more teeth scheduled to arrive in this lifetime, which is why preventive dental care is so critical to the longevity of your oral health! Preventative dentistry is an on-going commitment to maintaining healthy teeth and gums, and just so happens to be the best way to avoid expensive dental work caused by neglect, leading to tooth decay and infection.

More on preventive dental care
When you visit Silverwood Dental for your regular dental exams and cleanings, our team will do our best to leave your mouth spick and span and super-clean. However, between visits the rest is up to you! Remember to brush your teeth twice a day, and floss to get rid of any food between your teeth that brushing may have missed. We recommend using a soft-bristled brush that’s easy on the gums – also, try and swap out your toothbrush once every 3 months.
*Saturdays twice a month.
