Preventative Dental Exams

Preventive Dental Care – Holly Ridge, Surf City & Sneads Ferry, NC

Don't take chances with your smile! Preventive dental care cleanings and dental exams are vital for good oral health. Delaying or skipping checkups means you risk more extensive—and expensive—dental work later on. Through preventative dental care and maintenance, we're able to discover and repair cavities at their earlier stages, when they are most treatable. We will also be your front-line against other oral diseases and health concerns.

With just two preventive dental exams per year, you can significantly improve the health of your teeth while enjoying the peace of mind of being aware of any issues you may be facing and their solutions. The sooner issues can be found, the better. Make an appointment with us today!

Four Ways to Lose Your Teeth

Did you know that there are only four ways to lose your teeth? Three of these causes are diseases, and the last is due to breakage or damage. While accidents that cause broken teeth can be prevented with mouthguards and taking precaution, diseases can be prevented by good oral hygiene and regular visits to your dentist. At White Dental, we can effectively prevent and treat the diseases that lead to tooth loss while helping to strengthen and improve the function of your bite.

Two Disorders That Can Cause Damage

In addition to diseases and accidents, there are two main disorders—sleep apnea and TMJ—that can damage your mouth and teeth. They can also lead to serious health issues. Dr. White and the White Dental team can help you with these too! Visit our sleep disorders and TMJ treatment pages for more info.

Your Teeth Influence Your Overall Health

Your oral health affects much more than your mouth and teeth. Studies have shown that healthy teeth also have a positive influence on your heart, blood pressure and several other systems throughout your body. This is why preventive dental care is so important!
