It’s true that oral health is essential in maintaining your beautiful smile and your overall well-being. Oral health problems such as tooth decay and gum disease can wreak havoc on your smile and further affect your quality of life. Fortunately, such issues are treatable when caught early; still, it is better to prevent them before they occur or become more complicated.
Well, the best option is through Preventive Dental Care.
Preventative Dental Care refers to taking care of teeth and gums through proper oral hygiene habits and regular dental checkups. Starting preventive dental care during the early days of childhood can go a long way for your oral health. However, it is also important to note that it is never too late to start and benefit from preventive dental care even during adulthood.
With preventative dentistry, one can prevent oral complications from progressing, which could be very difficult and expensive to treat. Because in reality, it is much easier and cheaper to prevent oral health issues than treating them.
Some benefits of Preventive Dentistry include:
Preventive Dentistry can bring along several benefits, and to maximize its benefits, it takes a team effort between the patient and dentist. Our dentists at Forest Lane Dental Clinic perform professional preventive dental care procedures for patients, including checkups, regular cleanings, fluoride treatment and sealant procedures.
On the other hand, to reap the full benefits of preventive dentistry, it is the responsibility of the patient to practice proper oral hygiene. We remind patients to brush and floss regularly. By doing so, plaque formation can be prevented.
