We all know that brushing and flossing twice a day is a very major step in preventing caries and decay, however getting your patients through their adult life caries free is a HUGE challenge! Which is why we’ve taken Prevention to the next level with our Prevention for Life® program!

Traditionally, patients get great preventive care until about the age of 18, when fluoride treatments stop and insurance halts coverage, and therefore caries in children has seen a decrease in the last decade. Conversely, caries in adult patients is on the rise! We need to help older patients maintain oral health regardless of insurance coverage, because this set of teeth needs to last them the rest of their life.

Good preventive care plus fluoride varnish has resulted in a decreasing rate of caries in kids. Caries is increasing in adults yet only 10% of adults get fluoride varnish. The number of adults who could benefit from preventive care treatment is staggering! Let’s combat caries for ALL!

Fortunately, caries is preventable! Our Prevention for Life Program helps you assess, educate and treat patients of all ages, especially adult patients, to keep their smiles healthy for a lifetime. We’ve developed easy-to-use downloadable Risk Assessment tools that show your patients, especially adults, why prevention is important. Our downloadable Patient Self-Assessment form opens a prevention dialogue between you and your patient.

Prevention for Life will help your office increase acceptance of preventive treatment by patients of all ages, especially adults – where caries continues to increase – with tools and information designed for you

The American Dental Association shares some great resources which help families get a jump start on children’s oral health.

We love seeing those healthy smiles and strive to keep them that way by Making Dentistry Easier one fluoride treatment at a time!
