Preventive Dentistry

A preventive dental care program is a cooperative effort between a patient, dentist, and their staff to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures. This is accomplished by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions.

Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet. This continues in the dental office where dentists work to promote and maintain oral health.

Prevention also includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Dental sealants and fluoride are also great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth from tartar and plaque and may additionally improve overall health.

Some of the best ways dentists work to help patients prevent tooth decay and maintain oral health include:

Dentists will also encourage patients to brush and floss teeth as a regular part of an oral care dental plan. The ADA recommends regularly visiting your dentist to maintain oral health and prevent periodontal disease development and other dental issues related to the teeth and gums.

Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a beautiful, confident, healthy smile.



I have been a patient of Dr. Kenward for over 30 years. His professionalism and skill makes dental appointments easy. My entire family sees him and Clara, his dental hygienist, and we have every confidence in their ability to maintain our dental health. His office environment is attractive and clean. His staff is friendly and very helpful.

I love this dentist!!! I have been to 5 others here in South Florida, and Dr. Mayoral is by far the best. This practice is exceptionally clean and and the staff is incredibly professional and friendly. I don't know what else to say except that I recommended everyone I know, especially my family and friends, and all of them are very happy. I also got my Invisalign 6 months ago and have received many compliments on how nice my teeth and smile look. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!
