Preventative Dentistry in Aurora, CO
What is Preventative Dentistry?
Preventative Dentistry refers to the practice and procedures that contribute to the overall health of a child’s teeth and reduce the chance of further negative diagnoses. Preventative dentistry is both instructive, where the dental staff informs a patient the best way to take care of their teeth or follow up from a visit, and procedural, where a dentist will take action during a visit to prevent further cavities.
