What is Preventive Dental Care?

The main goal of preventive dentistry is to maintain your good oral health properly. This is done through a combination of regular dental check-ups or examinations, usually every 6 months, coupled with good eating habits and oral hygiene practices like regularly brushing your teeth and flossing. Seeking preventive dental care from a young age is important in keeping your teeth healthy, as some damage may be irreparable if diagnosed too late. It is equally important to continue practicing preventive dental care throughout the course of your life.

What Dental Services are Included in Preventive Dental Care?

Our preventive dental care program encompasses a wide range of complete and holistic dental services aimed at helping you maintain good oral health. These dental services include:
Those listed above are just some of the services that we offer for preventive dental care. There are other services available depending on the needs of the patient. However, it is important to remember that a huge part of preventive dental care is dependent on your day-to-day practices. This is why it is important to make sure that you start practicing and developing healthy dental habits as early as possible including brushing your teeth two times a day and flossing. It also helps to avoid food that could damage your teeth such as acidic foods or hard foods like candies, bones, seeds, and the like.

Why is Preventive Dental Care Important?

Preventive dental care is the most effective way to maintain good oral health. The phrase “prevention is better than cure” is especially true when it comes to your oral health. The state of your oral health greatly affects the way you live given that you use your gums and your teeth for smiling, eating, chewing, and even just talking. As such, the most important benefit of preventive dental care is that it lowers the risks of tooth decay, gum disease, and other more serious dental problems which could lower your productivity and cause you unbearable pain, thereby affecting your quality of life. Good oral hygiene habits that are learned in preventive dental care also help in reducing the risk of developing these diseases. Further, preventive dental care enables early detection or identification of dental problems before they can worsen. In line with this, preventive dental care helps you save a lot of money from costly procedures and surgeries that are needed to correct or treat serious dental problems.

The regular dental check-ups and services are essential in monitoring the conditions of your teeth and gums, so it is important to visit your dentist who will be able to properly assess the condition of your oral health through accurate diagnostic instruments and provide you with the proper preventive dental care or treatment as needed.
