At Tender Dental Care, Dr. Prabha Raju focuses on preventive care to ensure that you will maintain good oral health for years to come. With a trained eye, and in full consideration of your needs, our dentist provides highly effective preventive care in Burton, Michigan.
As with nearly every health care profession, prevention is key. Often times, it is much less intensive to prevent a condition and catch it early on than to treat it. The conditions we aim to prevent at our practice include tooth decay, periodontal disease (gum disease), and other damaging oral issues. Our preventive dental treatments include dental sealants, dental cleanings and oral cancer screenings. Routine visits to our dentist and team are also important as they allow us the opportunity to detect dental decay and disease in its early stage.
Preventive care also includes your daily hygiene habits, which we can help you improve as needed. In general, we want our patients to do the following:
- Brush twice and floss twice daily. We also recommend using a soft-bristles toothbrush and fluoridated toothpaste.
- Limit your intake of sugary or acidic foods and maintain a healthy diet.
