Preventive dentistry works by addressing issues before they become major.
This can include sealants, routine check-ups, cleanings, night guards, fluoride treatments, X-rays, and early intervention programs to prevent bigger issues later in life.
Why Preventive Dentistry Is Important
We have all heard how important it is to visit the dentist. But do you really understand why?
Dental disease can progress rapidly, and therefore preventive dentistry helps address issues before they become painful and costly.
For example, radiographs, or X-rrays, can help detect small cavities you have before they become root canal issues.
Another great advantage of having preventive dentistry done in children is an early assessment of your child’s bite and teeth.
Early age orthodontics can lead to simple solutions that prevent major teeth problems including even tooth loss.
Keeping current with your maintenance appointments is helpful to prevent gingivitis, periodontitis and assure a healthy, balanced smile.
How You Benefit
Preventive dentistry can help you put your mind at ease.
That can mean treating small issues before they become larger and can include exams with X-rays, periodontal therapy appointments, dental sealants, night guards and/or sports guards.
This is especially important in children as it can help us prevent much bigger issues in the future, such as severe crowding, lengthy orthodontic treatment and/or surgery.
By treating teeth before they become painful, you will reduce stress, prevent more serious issues from occurring, save on cost of treatment, and live a happier, healthier life.
