What is Preventative Dentistry?
To maintain a healthy, pearly white smile you will need to prevent dental problems before they begin.
Unfortunately many people will only visit their dentist after they have started to experience a problem, putting their teeth and gums at risk.
Preventative dentistry is when you work alongside your dental practitioner to avoid oral health issues before they even start.
Regular visits to your dentist and hygienist will allow them to assess any issues that may be developing and correct them with the appropriate treatment. They will also help you to improve your oral health routine at home.
Simple changes to your flossing and brushing techniques and your diet can have significant improvements on the health of your teeth and gums.
Why should I be interested in preventative dentistry?
Preventative dentistry makes trips to the dentist easier, less expensive, and leaves you far less likely to need any potentially painful treatments.
Prevention dentistry is the best way to ensure you can keep a healthy smile.
What issues can preventative dentistry help me to overcome?
The good thing about preventative dentistry is that it helps almost any dental issue.
Gum disease, tooth decay caused by high sugar diets and tooth wear are all issues that can be overcome with a preventative approach.
The first stage is to book an appointment with your dentist who will examine you before giving you a bespoke treatment plan.
By having regular dental check ups, visiting your hygienist and improving your oral health care at home, you can have the smile you always wanted.
