Prevent & Maintain

It’s easy to take for granted the role that preventive dentistry takes on for your dental health, but it is absolutely one of the most important aspects of what we do. Coming to the dentist for routine teeth cleanings and exams is vital to maintaining your oral health. And there is an old saying, the mouth is the gateway to the rest of the body. Yes, keeping your teeth and mouth healthy is vital to improved general health for your entire body.

Here at Waters Family Dentistry in Anderson, SC, we strive to keep our patients on an appropriate schedule of preventive dental visits. These include a professional, gentle cleaning by one of our professional hygienists, and a routine exam by Dr. John Waters. We also take the necessary X-rays that are due on an individual basis.

These visits give us an opportunity to give your teeth that newly clean feeling, but also to find potential problems before they become major problems. No one wants to think about possibly having to have a root canal or a dental extraction.

This is the time for us to help you avoid these major treatments by diagnosing problems like cavities when they are small. We may also find early signs of gum disease and discuss ways to improve your periodontal health. Additionally, we use these dental appointments to screen you for early signs of oral cancer and other conditions that may affect your mouth.

In short, routine dental cleanings and exams help you:
