WHAT IS PREVENTIVE DENTISTRY?
Preventive dentistry includes regular cleanings as well as your daily brushing, flossing routines. A hygienist takes care of your cleaning routines every three months depending on your oral health. Preventive dentistry also means caring for your teeth non-invasively ensuring overall mouth health.
Preventive dentistry could help you keep your teeth and mouth in the optimum levels of hygiene taking precautions against tooth loss caused by any decays, cavities, gum diseases. These precautions include appointments with dentists before any condition deteriorates. This does not only save you the expenses for the treatment of a more serious disease but also improves your overall well-being. Remember, you are what you eat and your oral hygiene is part of a healthy diet.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Your preventive care is planned with your dentist through a course of treatment,
in order to:
Recover your oral
Maintain it in the long run
Reduce dental treatments and operations
Keep your mouth healthy
Following a treatment or during a regular preventive care programme, you may be referred to a hygienist depending on your needs.
In addition to reducing your risk for other health issues, practicing good preventive health can save you money. Even with dental insurance, the costs associated with poor oral hygiene can add up. While preventive dentistry may not completely eliminate your need for fillings, root canals, or dental implants, it can go a long way in reducing your need for these costly treatments.
