Preventive Dentistry

Preventive dentistry is the area of dentistry concerned with preventing dental problems before they become costly or painful, or both. A large part of preventive dentistry is patient education. This includes learning the proper at-home dental care, nutrition, etc. Another aspect of preventive dentistry is oral hygiene through regular dental cleanings, fluoride treatments, mouthguards & more.
At Portsmouth Dental Care we make every effort to ensure that you, our patients, are well-informed & educated on proper at-home dental care so as to avoid, as much as possible, the need for restorative dental services.
