Preventive Dentistry in Rochester

Dr. Calcagno and our team provide preventive services to patients of all ages. In fact, even children should receive preventive dental care, too. Preventive dentistry involves visiting the dentist regularly for dental cleanings and checkups. We strongly encourage our patients to schedule dental cleanings every six months and an oral examination once a year.

Benefits of Preventive Dentistry

As with all types of medicine, prevention of disease is important for living a healthy lifestyle. Preventive dentistry addresses problems before they arise and can detect and correct potential problems before they advance. For example, at your annual oral examination, we conduct oral cancer screenings. If caught early on, oral cancer is curable. If oral cancer advances, it can potentially spread throughout your body and threaten your life.  Preventive dentistry may also save you from costly and time consuming oral health procedures in the future.
