Preventative Dentistry

Everyone knows the golden rule when it comes to visiting the dentist.  If you go every 6 months, you will avoid having to deal with painful dental health issues and costly procedures later on down the road.  If preventing serious dental health issues is as easy as visiting the dentist twice a year, why do so many people not go?  According to the Health Policy Institute, 59% of adults don’t go to the dentist simply because of the cost.  Many others don’t go out of fear.  Whatever the reason may be, it shouldn’t stop you from visiting the dentist regularly.

Preventative Dental Services

Preventative dentistry is made up of a few different factors.  From simply brushing twice a day to routine dental cleanings, preventative dentistry is absolutely key to maintaining a healthy, clean, and bright smile.  At D.C. Smile Studio, we offer preventative dental services including routine cleanings, x-rays, and deep cleanings.  Although it’s important to visit us twice a year, there are things you should do at home as well.  Our team of dental professionals aims to keep you educated on healthy dental practices in our office and at home.


You can do these things at home:

  • Brush twice daily
  • Floss once daily
  • Brush your tongue
  • Maintain a balanced and healthy diet
  • Avoid sugary drinks and food
