Preventative dentistry keeps your original teeth looking and working optimally, for as long as possible. Although many factors can have an adverse effect on oral health, good dental hygiene habits and regular check-ups can keep your mouth healthy and spot any issues early.
Most dental health issues are manageable with minimally invasive procedures or a simple cleaning, when caught early. For this reason, regular check-ups are an excellent way to perform cleaning and monitor any irregularities as soon as they emerge. For example, gingivitis is treatable and more manageable than periodontitis, which can develop if left untreated.
Many dental procedures, such as fillings and even extractions, have a preventative element which can help to limit the potential for further complications. If your dentist can monitor your oral health with regular check-ups, it will normally be possible to prevent serious dental problems from developing by taking the right steps and applying preventative treatments.
Preventative dentistry is a must for all patients. It can help to save the expense and discomfort of some of the more invasive dental procedures.
Treatments such as fluoride application and fissure sealants are excellent methods to give new teeth the best start. Relatively inexpensive preventative treatments, such as these, can help teeth last for longer and potentially limit the risk of cavities forming as teeth grow and develop.
We encourage a regular check-up every six months, which allows our dentists to monitor your oral health and make recommendations as necessary.
The cost of specific preventative procedures can vary. These approaches are almost always less expensive than more invasive dental work.
