Why is Preventative Dentistry Important?

As the saying goes, prevention is better than cure. The practice of maintaining good oral hygiene on a regular basis can prevent severe dental issues in the future. It’s easier to stop oral health problems from happening in the first place than to repair the damage later. Additionally, you are also reducing the risk of cavities, gingivitis, enamel loss and periodontitis. Poor oral health can also increase your risk of secondary problems such as diabetes, respiratory disease, heart disease, osteoporosis and even cancer.

Some of the benefits of preventive dentistry include:

  • Though regular brushing and flossing are very effective, there are some areas where your brush can’t reach. Getting a professional cleaning of your teeth will help to remove the plaque and prevent the formation of cavities.

  • Jaw problems can be identified in the early stages with the help of preventive dentistry. Issues such as jaw misalignment and severe tension headaches can be managed with the help of early identification.

  • Cleaning processes involving the removal of cavities and tartar involve a lot of time and procedures. But if you go for preventive care, you need not spend your time and money on these procedures. Visiting your dentist once in six months makes cleaning and checking your oral status easier.

Best Preventative Practices at Home

Preventive dentistry not only involves regular visits to your dentist but also the practice of effective at-home-care of your teeth. Getting good oral health is vital for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. There are several things you can do at home to keep your mouth healthy and bacteria at bay:

  • Brushing

  • Flossing

  • Mouthwash

  • Staying Hydrated

  • Minimizing consumption of sugary and acidic foods

Some effective tips for doing so are :

  • Using a mouth guard to keep your teeth safe for those involved in contact sports.

  • Rinsing your mouth after every meal preferably with a mouthwash.

  • Using a nighttime mouth guard if you have the habit of using grinding your teeth.

  • Consuming a balanced diet that includes all kinds of fruits and vegetables and the right amount of calcium.

  • Avoiding brushing very hard and taking care of your enamel.
