Comprehensive Preventive Care From A Well-Respected Minneapolis /Edina Dental Practice

We Work to Eliminate the “If Onlys…” From Your Oral Health

Far too often we encounter the “If Onlys” of life. If only I had turned left instead of right… If only I had gone to that school, or taken that job… If only I had taken better care of my teeth…

We provide the comprehensive preventive oral health care you need to eliminate the “If Onlys” and regrets from your life. By helping you create lasting dental care habits and addressing existing oral health concerns, we put you in the best possible position to protect your dental health.

What can you do at home for Preventive Dental Care?

A truly proactive approach to your dental health begins at home. Daily brushing, flossing and mouth rinses are very helpful in preventing decay and cavities. Unfortunately, understanding the best products and methods for obtaining the maximum benefit from these daily activities isn’t always easy. The advice of an experienced dentist and hygienist is invaluable in helping you maximize your preventive care routines.

At Smiles at France, we offer highly personalized, highly informative one-on-one preventive care appointments to give you the knowledge you need to maximize your preventive care practices.

During your hour long preventive care appointment, you’ll have the chance to learn about the proper oral care products and techniques you should be using at home, including:

  • Fluoride to prevent cavities in both adults and children
  • The correct toothbrush, oral tools, toothpaste, mouth-rinses and flossing options for your particular mouth
  • Most dental floss will remove loose plaque, removing the destructive, tenacious bacterial biofilm requires special floss and a different technique
  • Anti-microbial rinses to treat gingivitis or bad breath
  • Diet counseling regarding the avoidance of sugary or acidic foods
  • Mints, gums and cough drops that stimulate saliva and help prevent decay

Preventive Cleaning and Gum Treatments are Invaluable to Your Oral Health
