A Focus on Prevention

A Focus on Prevention At Vacek Family Dentistry, we know that dentistry is about more than just creating healthy smiles for our patients. It’s also about boosting your self-confidence, your quality of life, and even your overall health. We demonstrate that knowledge every day through our commitment to quality care and to prevention.

Why are we so focused on prevention? Because your smile actually shares a deep connection with the health of your entire body. In recent medical studies, health conditions as wide ranging as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and pre-term birth have all been connected to one very common oral health condition: gum disease.

That’s why gum disease is one of the first and foremost things Dr. Craig P. Vacek looks for during each and every general checkup. Other conditions we’ll look for include tooth decay, TMJ-dysfunction, and even oral cancer. By specifically looking for signs of these, we can help you prevent more serious problems from developing later on down the road.

We’ll also complete a professional cleaning as part of your dental checkup. Brushing and flossing are an essential part of caring for your smile, but they aren’t enough to keep your smile as clean as they need to be.  A professional cleaning will help you treat and prevent common conditions, in addition to helping you achieve optimal oral health.
