Preventive dentistry encompasses all the procedures used to arrest tooth decay and other diseases in their earliest stages. The goal is to keep your mouth as healthy as possible in order to allow you to maintain your natural teeth for life.
There is a wide range of preventive dentistry procedures available, ranging from the most basic services that have been utilized for decades, to more recent technological innovations. Pineview Family Dental offers the following services:
