We often hear the term prevention is better than cure and the sole focus of this blog is to drive that point home. As you may probably already know, your oral healthcare is directly linked to your overall health. Poor oral health can increase the risk of other health conditions, including diabetes and oral cancer. Focusing on preventive dentistry means ensuring the prevention of major health conditions.
Benefits of Preventive Dentistry
Cavity Prevention – Cavities are a common oral problem. However, people generally get cavities because of poor oral hygiene, which is an indication that they skip regular dental check-ups. Instead of seeking treatment for cavities after they wreak havoc on your teeth, you can prevent cavities through dental sealants and other procedures.
Strengthening of the Teeth – You can get Fluoride treatments to strengthen your teeth and prevent cavities. Fluoride enhances the strength of the enamel, making it harder for bacteria to damage the teeth.
Gum Disease Prevention – Through regular check-ups and appointments, you can also prevent gum disease, or periodontitis, resulting from plaque formation. By getting a regular professional dental cleaning, you can avoid the formation of plaque and tartar, which are the leading cause of gum disease.
Bad Breath Prevention- If you have halitosis, you can get preventive care treatments such as antibiotic mouthwashes and rinses to help prevent bacteria formation that causes bad breath.
Protection- Preventive dentistry also includes protective dental appliances such as mouthguards. If you play sports regularly, we suggest you do so wearing a mouthguard to prevent trauma to the dental structure, which can lead to chipping or breaking of your teeth.
If there's anything that can potentially damage your teeth or your overall health through your teeth, preventive dentistry can help avoid those dental and oral healthcare problems.
