At Tolland Hill Family Dental, we believe that the best dental treatment is the one you never need. Our focus on Preventative Dentistry is rooted in our mission to empower our patients with the knowledge and tools necessary for maintaining optimal oral health. By emphasizing preventive care, we aim to keep your visits focused on maintenance and education, reducing the need for more invasive treatments.

The Philosophy Behind Preventative Dental Care

Preventative dental care is akin to any other form of preventative medicine. It involves taking proactive, regular steps to avoid dental problems, rather than addressing them after they’ve developed. This approach not only benefits your oral health but also contributes significantly to your overall well-being.

The Basics of Preventative Dental Care

Preventative dental care includes daily habits and regular dental visits that form the foundation of a healthy oral regimen. These practices are simple yet profoundly effective in maintaining your dental health:

  • Daily Brushing: Use an electric toothbrush for an effective clean.
  • Regular Flossing: Essential for removing plaque and food particles.
  • Toothbrush Replacement: Change your toothbrush head regularly for optimal cleaning.
  • Diet Choices: Minimize foods that contribute to tooth decay.
  • Regular Dental Visits: Schedule check-ups 2-4 times per year.
  • Periodic X-Rays: Essential for detecting issues that aren’t visible.
  • Oral Cancer Screenings: Annual screenings with Valscope™.
  • Fluoride Treatments: Topical applications to strengthen enamel.

Major Benefits of Preventative Dental Care

The advantages of preventative dental care extend far beyond just maintaining a healthy smile:

  • Cost-Effective: Regular care is far more affordable than corrective dental procedures.
  • Time-Saving: A few minutes a day dedicated to dental care saves hours in the dentist’s chair.
  • Comfort: Routine care helps avoid the discomfort associated with extensive dental work.
  • Health Preservation: Consistent care prevents the development of serious dental issues.

What Our Patients Say

Never had I had so much attention paid to my whole mouth health. Performed mouth cancer checks and measured gum gaps (didn't know this was a thing). A lot of time with doctor, not just the hygienist. Explained everything they were doing and why.
Daniel Keener
The team at this office was very kind, understanding, patient and persistent in working with my child. She is highly anxious at the dentist and they took their time to help her through the experience. Would highly recommend them to others!
