As a family dentist in Prairie Village, KS, Dr. Terry Linneman believes in regular preventive care for everyone--from kids and teens to adults and seniors. Prevention of oral disease is the mainstay of a long-lasting smile. His team at Prairie Village Dental Care provide everything you need for teeth and gums that look great, feel good, function as they should and endure for a lifetime.
Prevention is everything
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) says that tooth decay and periodontal disease are the leading causes of tooth loss in the United States. Many of these problems are preventable.
The key to prevention is uncovering biofilms--bacteria-filled plaque and tartar--and removing them. The American Dental Association (ADA) strongly urges your entire family brush twice a day for a full two minutes and to floss daily, too. If you have young children, do their oral hygiene routines for them until they have the dexterity to go it alone.
Combine brushing, flossing and a tooth-friendly diet with six-month exams, digital X-rays and hygienic cleanings with your family dentist in Prairie Village, KS. Then, you'll have a recipe for healthy teeth and viable gum tissue and supportive bone. Dr. Linneman offers fluoride treatments and plastic sealants to guard vulnerable tooth enamel against decay.
Additionally, Dr. Linneman examines all adults for oral cancer. Potentially deadly, it's highly treatable when detected in its earliest stage. This visual exam included at your six-month visit is simple, quick and so worthwhile.
Other benefits of preventive care
1. Preventing oral health problems keeps your systemic health strong.
2. A beautiful, healthy smile influences what other people think of us and how we think of ourselves. When our teeth look good, we feel confident and less self-conscious.
