Cleanings & Prevention

Family Dentistry in Berkeley at James T. White, DDS

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 the Berkeley dental office of Dr. James White and Dr. David Yongue, our entire dental team focuses on helping every patient protect their smile from damage and decay. 

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. During your regular six-month check-up, our dentists in Berkeley will comprehensively evaluate each part of your smile, identify problem areas, then recommend treatments that improve the overall health and function of your smile. Depending on the condition of your smile, Drs. White and Yongue may also make recommendations and changes to your at-home hygiene routine to better care for your smile between dental visits.
