Dating back to the strategies of Machiavelli and Sun Tzu, the adage, “the best defense is a good offense,” applies to your dental health as well.

At Peterson & Cammack, our Lacey, WA dental office will develop an offensive strategy for your oral hygiene. Through a combination of preventive dentistry practices including regularly scheduled checkups, daily oral hygiene routines and dental healthcare education, we prevent the dental concerns that we can, restore the ones we can’t and strive to maintain your happy, healthy smile.

Dental Checkups

You take your car in for oil changes and tune ups, you change the air filter on your air conditioner and clean your house on a regular basis. Why shouldn’t you treat your teeth as well as you do your household items? At Peterson & Cammack we think you should. The American Dental Association recommends a thorough examination and teeth cleaning every six months to a year at least. If you aren’t seeing us at least once a year, you could be at risk for numerous dental health concerns like tooth decay, gum disease and even oral cancer.

Checkups are the best way to ensure that you maintain your picture-perfect smile and your overall best oral health. Many potentially serious dental health concerns are easily remedied when they are discovered early. Like other medical issues, the sooner oral health problems are found the more likely they are to be treatable.
