Preventing a dental problem is always preferable to treating one that has already occurred. You can significantly reduce your risk of advanced tooth decay, periodontal disease, and other issues by visiting the dentist regularly for dental checkups. If more than six months have passed since your last dental visit, we encourage you to call St. Marys Dental Center at 785-437-2771 to schedule an appointment and benefit from preventive dentistry in St. Marys, Kansas.
