Preventive dentistry is one of the most significant branches of dentistry. It focuses on the dental procedures and hygiene practices that can help prevent or lessen the effects of an oral disease, including daily brushing and flossing. Preventing oral health problems is one of our top goals at Advanced Family Dentistry.

Teeth and Gum Care

Performing preventive dental care as advised by your dentist will aid in minimizing your chances of acquiring an oral disease such as gingivitis or periodontitis. We advise patients to brush and floss at least twice a day for preventive home care, and to visit us twice a year for teeth cleaning and oral health checkups.

Early Detection

Detection of dental disease is one of the key roles your dentist plays in your oral health care. We want to catch any dental problem early and remedy it as quickly as possible. As a result, we recommend dental exams and x-rays. On your first visit, we’ll establish a baseline for your existing oral health, and from there design a treatment or preventive plan to ensure your dental health throughout your lifetime.

 

I can’t say enough on how much I appreciate them

Dr. Kim is a fantastic dentist! I’ve been a patient of his for over 15 years! I hate dentists! LOL! But I love Dr. Kim and his staff and his wife! They are all great! They are very professional and caring. He’s done great dental work for me and I have a great smile! He calms my nerves when I feel like I’m just going to pass out from being so nervous. He knows me too well! LOL! I can’t say enough on how much I appreciate them. They are giving and generous they deserve all the good in life has to offer them! I told Dr. Kim that he can never retire because he will have to be my dentist until I die! LOL God bless Dr. Kim and his practice and group of family and friends!
