Preventative Care

In the world of dentistry, many concerns don't cause much pain at first; however, this doesn't mean they don't need treatment.man pondering dentistry | preventative dentistry prairieville la

For example, tooth decay doesn't typically cause much pain until it gets to the pulp or root of your tooth. It may cause sensitivity in the beginning, but a lot of people ignore this since it goes away on its own. By the time you feel any discomfort, you may have an infection in your tooth, which may requires root canal therapy to save the tooth.

Preventative Dentistry

When it comes to dentistry, prevention is the key. We are actually able to help you avoid many dental issues when you visit us consistently every six months for cleaning and checkup appointments. Dr. Palm provides a thorough examination to detect any concerns in their earliest stages while our hygienist cleans your teeth and removes the plaque buildup that contributes to issues such as tooth decay. We'll also provide you with the information you need to know to get the most out of your home care routine.

Being proactive about your oral health allows you to choose less invasive treatment procedures and handle any concerns before they become bigger problems.
