Preventive Dentistry

The Importance of Preventive Care
Like with all branches of modern medicine, preventive care is important. Dr. Petre considers preventive dentistry a vital factor in minimizing dental problems, reducing pain and discomfort and, equally important, reducing your expense for dental care.

Early Detection and Treatment
Early detection through regular checkups and X-rays leads to avoidance of serious dental problems. It is easier, and of course more cost effective, to take care of small issues quickly rather than to letting them advance into serious problems that require extensive care.

Early Detection and Allowance for Planning
A preventive approach in dental treatment is advantageous because it allows for planning. When you are aware of a dental condition, you can better plan for the treatment, both in terms of time and finances.
