What is preventive care?
Preventive dental care focuses on preventing dental problems like tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease. At Dr. Ronald Fuhrmann’s dental office, we are committed to helping you keep your smile healthy for life, and preventive care treatments help us reach this goal. Our dentist and team work hard to educate each of our patients on the importance of maintaining good dental health and how to do so throughout life. Our preventive care services include the following:
• Dental cleanings and exams – Routine cleanings and exams help to make certain that our team detects and treats any dental problems at the earliest possible stage. Professional teeth cleanings also help to prevent decay and gum disease.
• Dental sealants – Sealants are coatings that are applied to the chewing surface of the teeth to protect them from tooth decay.
• Fluoride treatment – Fluoride is a naturally found mineral that helps to prevent tooth decay and keep your teeth healthy.
Dr. Ronald Fuhrmann may recommend these or other types of preventive care in Virginia Beach, Virginia, to help your smile stay healthy. Whenever we recommend a treatment for your smile, whether it is preventive, restorative, or cosmetic, our team will explain all of the details of the treatment and why it is needed. We want you to feel comfortable and confident with each of the services you receive at our office.
