Elite Dental Care is a preventive focused practice. This means that, while we provide the full range of restorative and cosmetic dental treatments, our main goal is always to help you prevent the need for these treatments by maintaining your best oral health. The American Dental Association recommends patients visit their dentist twice a year for a full cleaning and examination. Professional dental cleanings help remove built-up plaque that cannot be removed with conventional brushing and flossing. Regular cleanings are one of the best ways you can protect your tooth and gum health. With regular examinations, any problems that might arise can be caught quickly. Dr. Chavez can identify potential problems you might not yet be able to see or feel. Early detection generally means less extreme (and expensive) treatment options.
Between visits, proper home oral care is a very important part of maintaining your best smile. The links below provide useful tips on how to take care of your teeth at home.
