At DP5th, we believe that prevention is the best treatment. That’s why we make sure to give patients the tools they need to avoid future dental problems.
Our hygienists can recommend advanced preventative dentistry techniques that go beyond brushing and flossing. This can include special pre-rinses, mouthwashes and adult fluoride treatments. They are also trained to recognize the warning signs of oral cancer and other diseases, and to address sources of potential damage such as clenching, nail biting, grinding, smoking and dietary habits, along with medical problems like esophageal reflux, diabetes, oral cancer and eating disorders.
