Benjamin Franklin once said that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” This is particularly true when applied to maintaining oral health and overall wellness. Preventing serious dental issues is vastly preferable to treating problems when they’ve already reached an advanced state. That is why the Dallas, TX practice of Ted R. Hume III, DDS places an immense amount of emphasis on preventive dentistry, helping our patients avoid the need for extensive treatment in the future.
Routine Preventive Dentistry Benefits
Preventive dental care focuses on providing patients with the treatments they need to keep their smiles healthy and looking their best before decay and disease have a chance to develop. With thorough exams, comprehensive cleanings, and invaluable patient education, Dr. Hume helps patients from Dallas, TX and nearby areas avoid serious oral health complications like periodontal disease, extensive tooth decay, and more. Regular cleanings involve the meticulous removal of plaque and tartar from your teeth, thereby preventing the development of cavities and gum disease.
Additional preventive measures include the use of fluoride supplements to strengthen and remineralize teeth, as well as dental sealants to further protect enamel from decay. If you suffer from bruxism (teeth grinding), we can provide you with a customized oral appliance to prevent damage to the surfaces of your teeth.
At the office of Dr. Ted Hume, we know that educated patients are healthier patients. We will always take the time to explain the status of your oral health and offer our professional recommendations regarding treatment. We welcome any questions you may have, and we’ll always treat you with the respect you want and deserve.
