Collingswood’s Favorite Dentist: Emphasizing Preventive Care

preventative dentistryBecause prevention is the cornerstone of lifelong dental health and wellness, Joseph S. Cohen D.D.S. emphasizes preventive care and education. With proper care, your natural teeth can stay healthy and beautiful for a lifetime.

Preventive dentistry helps prevent conditions from developing or worsening. For instance, removing plaque from teeth by brushing and flossing prevents plaque from hardening into tartar; tartar causes gum inflammation that can lead to bone loss and loss of teeth. By far the two most important aspects of preventive dentistry are having teeth cleaned professionally on a regular basis and practicing proper oral hygiene at home.
