At our practice in Horizon Dental, we emphasize prevention. Regular checkups and excellent daily oral hygiene are the best defense against serious oral health problems. In addition, education is a vital part of preventative care. During your regular visits for general family dentistry in Terrace, we will discuss best practices and answer any questions, all with the goal of helping you maintain superior oral health for life. While you may not realize it, your six-month checkup is important to both your dental and overall health.
Many serious diseases, including heart and respiratory illnesses, are linked to poor dental health. Early detection and treatment of problems like tooth decay and gum disease enables us to prevent small problems from becoming more severe. If problems do arise, you can be assured that we will treat them effectively, efficiently and with the highest standards of care.
