Keep Your Natural Smile for Life

Proactive cleanings, exams, and treatments from Dr. Jarrett Manning prevent minor issues from escalating into major, expensive problems. Customized homecare instructions further bolster oral wellness between office visits. Patients who prioritize preventive dentistry reduce their risk of tooth loss and experience less dental pain compared to solely treating emergencies.

What is Preventive Dentistry?

Preventive dentistry focuses on maintaining good oral health and avoiding potential issues before they develop. At JLM Dental Studios, Dr. Manning utilizes preventive dentistry to help patients keep their teeth and gums healthy for life. This proactive approach involves regular checkups, cleanings, and procedures to detect, diagnose, and treat minor problems before they become more complex and costly to fix.

  • Digital X-rays to detect small problems not visible. Dr. Manning relies on the latest imaging technology.

Why is Preventive Care Important?

Maintains Health

Preventive care keeps your mouth in optimal shape. Dr. Manning will clean your teeth thoroughly, apply protective treatments, and make sure you’re free of disease and other issues. With her help, you can maintain strong, damage-free teeth for decades.

Saves Money

It’s much cheaper to treat a minor cavity early than to deal with a root canal or dental implant down the road. Preventive care saves patients significant money over the long run by avoiding costly, complex procedures.

Prevents Pain

Catching problems early means treating them before you experience pain or discomfort. Diagnosing issues like cavities and gum disease in the initial stages allows Dr. Manning to address them easily and painlessly.

Improves Overall Health

Your oral health impacts your whole body. Gum disease has been linked to heart disease, diabetes complications, pneumonia, and premature births. Regular cleanings and exams from Dr. Manning help ward off these risks.

Boosts Confidence

Staying on top of your oral hygiene keeps your smile looking its best. Dr. Manning’s preventive treatments will keep your teeth strong, white, and cavity-free. You’ll feel confident showing off your healthy smile.

Lengthens Lifespan of Teeth

The better you care for your teeth, the longer they will last. With Dr. Manning’s help, you can keep your natural teeth for life instead of eventually needing dentures or implants.
