Baton Rouge Preventive Dentistry at Appleton Prosthodontics

A preventive program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental staff to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions. At our Baton Rouge dental office, our goal is to help patients achieve exceptional oral health. 

Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet.  It is continued in the dental office by the efforts of your dentist and dental hygienist to promote, restore, and maintain your oral health.

Prevention also includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Sealants and fluoride are also great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth.

Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident, beautiful smile.  For patients with smiles that have suffered from dental trauma, decay, or disease, Dr. Appleton first focuses on improving oral health then creating lasting dental restorations. At Appleton Prosthodontics, we offer a wide range of restorative treatment options, including dentures, partials, dental implants, and implant dentures.
