Preventive Dentistry

Caring for your teeth and gums to keep them healthy.

While we all know that brushing, flossing, and regular visits to the dentist are essential to our oral health, it can be easy to let bad habits take over, leading to poor dental hygiene, gum disease, and tooth decay.

Preventive dentistry helps stop these bad habits and ensures your teeth and gums remain healthy for as long as possible.

What are the best practices of preventive dentistry?

The best preventive dentistry practices include brushing your teeth for two minutes twice a day and flossing at least once daily.

If possible, we also recommend you brush your teeth after consuming tea, coffee, red wine, or any foods exceptionally high in sugar.

Maintaining a healthy diet can also go a long way toward ensuring good oral health. Reducing sugar, taking vitamins and minerals, and limiting caffeine and alcohol are good places to start.

Above all, you should be making regular dentist appointments to thoroughly examine your teeth and gums to detect and treat any problems early.

Why is it so important?

Without proper care and attention, plaque can build up, coating your teeth in a sticky layer of bacteria. Over time, plaque causes inflammation of the gums. Bleeding, redness and soreness are all early symptoms of gum disease.

If left untreated, gum disease can develop into a more severe form called periodontal disease or peritonitis. This condition can irreversibly affect the health of your teeth, gums, and jaw, leading to tissue and tooth loss.

Who benefits?

Everyone benefits from Preventive dentistry, from small children to adults and the elderly.

Children particularly benefit from Preventive dentistry, as oral health problems they experience during their developmental years can have an ongoing negative impact on the condition of their teeth and gums as they mature into adulthood.

How can this affect my overall health?

A healthy mouth is also the key to a healthy body. Not only can good oral hygiene prevent dental issues, but it can help you to avoid general medical disorders in other parts of the body as well.

Research has shown that plaque build-up can lead to infections and diseases by creating an environment where bacteria thrive. Aside from gum disease, research suggests that excessive plaque also has links to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, dementia, rheumatoid arthritis, and premature birth.

Maintaining good oral health can reduce your risk of developing these other medical problems. In addition, by effectively reducing the plaque level in your mouth, you will improve your oral health.

How can we help?

We offer any advice you might need regarding your oral health. From educating you on how to look after your teeth and gums to tailoring a personal Preventive dentistry plan for you, we make it our top priority to ensure our patients are on the right track to maintain an excellent standard of oral health.
