Preventative Dentistry

Preventive dentistry focuses on maintaining optimal oral health and preventing dental issues before they occur. Through regular dental check-ups, cleanings, and education about proper oral hygiene practices, preventive dentistry aims to reduce the risk of cavities, gum disease, and other oral health problems.

  • Conservation of Natural Teeth: Regular dental check-ups and cleanings help preserve natural teeth, avoiding the need for more invasive treatments like extractions or root canals.
  • Enhanced Quality of Life: Maintaining good oral health through preventive dentistry can lead to improved confidence, comfort, and overall quality of life.

Summary of Preventative Dentistry Procedures

During preventative dentistry procedures, the first step involves a comprehensive dental examination to assess the overall oral health of the patient. This examination may include checking for signs of cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer. Following the examination, professional dental cleaning is performed to remove plaque and tartar buildup from the teeth and gums, reducing the risk of dental issues.

Furthermore, preventative dentistry procedures often include the application of dental sealants and fluoride treatments to protect the teeth from decay. Dental sealants are thin coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of the molars to prevent food particles and bacteria from accumulating in the deep grooves of the teeth. Fluoride treatments help strengthen the tooth enamel and make it more resistant to acid attacks from plaque bacteria.
