Put simply, the best way to treat dental problems is to not develop them in the first place. That’s why Fairfax-area dentist Dr. Pamela Marzban emphasizes preventive dentistry so much with her patients.

Fortunately, preventive dentistry is a relatively matter for most of our patients. Keep good oral hygiene habits and you’ll stave off the development of dangerous dental conditions and maintain a healthy, happy smile.

These habits include:

  • Brush at least twice a day with a soft-bristled tooth brush
  • Floss regularly
  • Avoid acidic, staining foods and drinks such as sodas or wine
  • Don’t smoke
  • Rinse with an antiseptic mouthwash
  • See our Fairfax dentist at least once every six months

That last item is crucial. There’s a lot you can do for your mouth at home, but ultimately your dentist has more tools and resources.

By coming in to Dr. Marzban’s office at least once every six months you’ll be able to get the dental treatments you need. We can detect the early signs of any problems and help you wipe them out.
