As the age-old saying goes, “Prevention is better than cure”. With the right prevention measures in place, you can ensure that you have a healthy smile and drastically reduced the chances of dental complications. Utilising prevention dentistry helps you save thousands of dollars with minimally invasive solutions.
Preventative dentistry is important to everyone! In early childhood development, keeping a close eye on dental health will ensure your child has healthy teeth well into adulthood. As an adult, making use of preventative dentistry will allow you to intercept oral diseases early and give you plenty of insight on how to better your oral health. For example, at its worst stage, gum disease can cause tooth loss and severe infection of the gums, leading to often irreversible damage to the surrounding soft tissue and bone. Especially for patients who are immunocompromised, or senior patients, regular dental care will help prevent any health complications.
Your regular dental checkups aren’t just about professional teeth cleaning. As the above list outlines, there are various important services we offer under preventative dentistry to help our patients be more proactive about their dental health. Intervening early saves you money, prevents irreversible problems, and significantly reduces your risk of cavities.
While we will further guide you during your checkup, here are some general tips you should follow at home to reduce your risk of tooth decay:
Preventative dentistry focuses on maintaining oral health and preventing dental issues with regular check-ups and cleanings. It’s more about implementing proactive measures that can keep your teeth in great shape to either avoid costly and painful dental conditions or reduce your risk of them arising.
Restorative dentistry involves repairing or replacing teeth that are already damaged with treatments like fillings or crowns. This approach to dentistry helps improve your tooth’s function as well as the appearance of your smile once it is already affected by a dental issue.
