Preventive Dental Care
A preventive program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental team to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions.

Part of your oral hygiene routine should include having a dental cleaning with a professional hygienist, such as ours at Posh Dental, which is then followed by an examination with Dr. Gabriel. These appointments are designed to ensure that your oral health is on a good path and redirect it if it is not.
Sealants are painted directly onto the tooth where they seal the natural grooves to help prevent tooth decay. Fluoride is a natural mineral that has been proven to strengthen teeth and prevent the incidence of tooth decay.
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is usually painless, you may not know you have it.
Bruxism (teeth grinding) can cause moderate to severe long-term damage to teeth. Constant grinding wears down the surface of the tooth, exposing the soft dentin beneath the enamel. This is why it's important to protect your teeth while you sleep by wearing a bite guard.
Kid's teeth need dental care, just like grown-up teeth. Regular exams by Dr. Gabriel can help to identify any abnormalities in your child's oral development, and can minimize the impact of decay on your child's health by catching cavities early.
