Preventive Dentistry is for Everyone


Benjamin Franklin told us, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

This sound advice is as timely today as it was in Mr. Franklin’s day. Even the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services adopted the slogan in their campaign against infectious diseases and called it, “An Ounce of Prevention Campaign.”

The Surgeon General jumped on the preventive dentistry bandwagon in his recent report on oral health in America stating that a large percentage of the population suffers from a reduced quality of life due to oral and facial pain. The staggering statistics that the Surgeon General quoted were that more than 75 percent of the population is affected by some type of periodontal disease or gingivitis which can lead to bleeding gums, bad breath and even oral cancer. Making an appointment with your dentist to schedule a regular cleaning is just one of the preventive measures to avoid gum disease, bleeding gums and  detect early oral cancer.

Dr. James Rhode has over 30 years of experience and has an eye for spotting any potential oral health problems before they become insurmountable problems. Through regular cleaning and screening of your mouth, Dr. Rhode will be able to detect and devise a treatment plan to fit your needs and your budget. His painless dental practice can prevent gum disease before it becomes a serious health issue or restore your smile with dental implants and sparkling clean teeth.

Gum disease often robs your teeth of the healthy foundation they need to thrive. Dr. Rhode is a cosmetic dentist who will bring your smile back to your face even if you have experienced tooth loss by using the latest techniques with dental implants.

The Academy of General Dentistry advises that many of the serious and costly diseases can often be identified initially in the mouth cavity. These include serious diseases such as cancer and heart disease. The Academy further recommends building a relationship with your dentist through regular visits so that the dentist knows your history, can maintain your oral health and catch any problems before they turn into large ones.
