Yes! Finding a dentist who is able to anticipate your future dental needs and prevent those emergencies or issues from ever arising in the first place is the best! This is why Paramount Dental Center places enormous stock in offering the finest preventive dental care in Kirkland and Seattle, Washington. While we are here to take care of you should an immediate problem occur — such as a cavity, lost tooth or root canal — the more we can maintain your oral health upfront, the better off you’ll be in the long term.
What are the main preventive care methods that we encourage?
First and foremost, regular checkups are a surefire way to keep your teeth healthy and clean, as well as catch developing decay or plaque before it can become even more serious.
Second, we educate our patients on proper oral hygiene that they can easily maintain at home. This includes:
- Brushing teeth at least twice a day
- Regular flossing
- Avoiding an excess of high candy, high sugar intake
- Safeguarding teeth during sports or other physical activities
Third, preventive care can be made all the easier with dental sealants. These are thin coatings painted onto your teeth that fight tooth decay by shielding the various grooves and bumps of the enamel. Learn more about sealants here.
As you can see, it doesn’t take much to follow a preventive dental care plan, and the positive oral habits you establish now will promote strong teeth and healthy gums for the rest of your life. This is the sort of peace of mind and quality of life that our dentists and team love to provide for our dental patients of all ages.
