Preventive Dentistry

Perhaps you’ve heard the saying, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Nowhere is this truer than with your oral health. A little time and money spent now on your oral health can save you much time, money, and pain in the future. Don’t just go to the dentist once you have a toothache. A cavity usually begins to hurt once it has developed into a larger problem. At Genuine Family Dentistry in Orange, CA, Dr. Paul Athanasius and his highly-trained hygienists desire to keep your teeth and gums healthy by practicing preventative dentistry. Research has shown a direct link between your oral health and the overall health of your whole body. Among many other issues, gum disease has been linked to diabetes and bacteria in the mouth has been linked to heart disease. Most of these issues can be addressed very early and effectively through regular checkups and cleanings. The best scenario is a checkup and cleaning every six months. This is the most likely way to avoid serious dental issues in the future. Call us right now and schedule a cleaning!
