Prevention and education are key components to maintain their health. If we are able to be proactive to avoid dental problems then we are talking about preventive dentistry. Go to inquiry to us cleanings often use good brush and floss, make sure we clean well between the teeth and limiting carbohydrates and bakery are all examples of “Preventive Dentistry” in action. Similarly, knowing what treatments exist and what are the most appropriate for us as well as what potential hazards may affect our oral health, we feel more confident when advised by letting us choose our dentist and our dental treatment.
Many studies have shown the strong correlation between periodontal disease and heart disease. Thus preventing periodontal disease may be helping to prevent heart disease!
Good hygiene at home, combined with a healthy diet and dental cleanings by a professional are the keys of Preventive Dentistry. It is also very important during the reviews our dentist perform a thorough examination of your mouth to detect problems as soon as possible.
The old saying “prevention is better than cure” cannot be truer when it comes to dental health (and our health in general). Try a small cavities requires only perform a simple seal, but wait until it hurts and then go to the dentist to have it try it will in many cases perform a root canal with his post and crown.
The more complicated the treatment, the greater the likelihood of failure when this happens and “dentistry fails us” we may lose the tooth. Too often we have heard “good Doctor is not it true that I can get an implant if I lose a tooth?”. Though implants are very successful in most cases, can become extremely expensive and require even more care our own teeth.
Education is really the key for Preventive Dentistry. If a patient is really explained things well and is given the right tools, you can get to improve your dental health. We observed many patients who, after showing how to perform a thorough cleaning of your mouth, give them instructions on oral hygiene and implement good hygiene at home; you have come to “cure” their periodontal disease. No, they have not recovered the bone that has been lost, but the strength of their teeth has improved and the bone is denser, and healthy gums do not bleed. Some of our patients with serious periodontal problems and apparently insoluble have come to improve the firmness of your teeth over the years. These teeth have significantly lost bone to be fixed, but no longer hopeless cases.
