Prevention and oral health

Prevention is the best strategy to ensure the longevity of the dental health and a beautiful smile. There are some great dental treatments that restore the looks of the teeth. Preventive and Oral health is the branch of dentistry that deals with keeping the mouth, teeth and gums intact ensuring a beautiful smile forever. Preventive dentistry is about taking care of your teeth and gums in order to protect your smile with the commonly occurring problems like Plaque, Tartar, Caries(cavities), Coffee or Tobacco Stains and other dental diseases. There are four major preventive dentistry measures which are required to be taken in order to protect the teeth and gums from a wide array of dental problems. 

 

Food
Oral Hygiene
Tips

Oral Hygiene: Oral Hygiene is a major step towards prevention and oral healthcare. We recommend that one should brush and floss the teeth at least twice a day and should never sleep without brushing their teeth. It prevents a wide array of tooth decay and gum diseases as overtime bacteria develops from the traces of food that are left in the mouth for the night. Tooth decay and gum diseases start when one ignores these two simple steps that can bring a big change in dental health. 

Fluoride Use: Fluoride takes care of tooth decay and strengthens the teeth. There are many fluoride toothpastes and mouthwashes available in the market that contain fluoride, which is essential for healthy teeth.

Clinical Visits: We recommend that one should visit dentist at least twice a year to ensure that there are no dental problems. A dental check-up is necessary to provide a pre-emptive treatment against a developing dental problem. One should understand that a dental visit not only helps in diagnosing dental problems but a dentist can see a lot of things that one cannot observe. Teeth grinding, caries are a few of the problems that you cannot diagnose at an early stage without dental expertise. 

Lifestyle Changes: There are major lifestyle changes that are needed to be made and a dentist is a great motivator to initiate these changes. Smoking, Sugar or soda drinks, Coffee have a habit of damaging your teeth after consistent use. Food habits, diet, etc. are a few things that a dentist can observe by looking into your teeth. He or She can suggest you changes that can prevent a great number of future dental problems. 

Early Warning of a Problem: On routine check-ups a lot of dental problems are revealed which help in putting a check on them at an early stage. 

Better Lifestyle Choices: A Dentist warns you against your habits like drinking, smoking etc. These lifestyle changes prove to be very helpful in most of the cases. 

Complete Dental Care: By regularly brushing and flossing, you are taking complete care of your teeth and gums. There is a famous proverb “Prevention is better than Cure”.
