We take our time to talk with you, identify your concerns and expectations, correct any problems in their earliest stages, and help you protect your smile and maintain a healthy mouth.

What to expect from preventative dentistry

Preventive dental treatment focuses on continuing hygiene practises and daily routines to stop tooth decay and other oral diseases and conditions from developing later on. With proper dental care, you can effectively avoid or lessen the impact of:

  • Cavities
  • Enamel loss
  • Gingivitis
  • Periodontitis

Everyone benefits from preventive dental care

Preventive dentistry offers many benefits, particularly to children, as it allows their newly forming teeth to erupt strong and healthy. In some cases, dental sealants and in-office fluoride treatments are recommended to help prevent tooth decay. For adults, preventive dentistry can help you maintain your natural teeth for longer, or even your lifetime.

Since your mouth is a breeding ground for dangerous bacteria, keeping it clean and healthy is also beneficial to your overall health. As such, preventative dentistry is known to reduce the risk of secondary health concerns associated with poor oral health, including:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Osteoporosis
  • Cancer
  • Respiratory disease
  • Low birth weight
  • Premature birth

Preventive dental treatment strategies

Preventive dental care typically incorporates at-home dental care by patients, as well as in-office treatments and counselling by a dental professional. Common strategies for children and adults include:

At-home oral hygiene

It is extremely important that you brush and floss a minimum of two times a day to remove dental plaque. If allowed to collect and build up, it can produce tartar and acid-producing bacteria that are responsible for tooth decay and gum disease.

Daily tooth cleaning for children should begin the instant the first tooth erupts. It is recommended that you visit a pediatric dentist at this time, or within the first 12 months of age, in order to develop a comprehensive oral health care program for your kid.

Fluoride Use:

Fluoride is contained in most toothpastes and helps to strengthen tooth enamel and prevent decay. Besides the use of fluoride, mouth rinses, and toothpastes at home, there are also fluoride treatments provided in a dental office, with consideration of access to public fluoridated water.

Diet:

Maintaining a balanced diet is important for your dental and overall health. Foods that are high in carbohydrates and sugars harm your body, including your teeth, as they feed the bacteria in your mouth that create dental plaque. Inadequate calcium in your diet is also risky, as it increases the risk of developing gum disease and jaw deterioration.

Regular dental visits:

Routine dental checkups are important for early detection of teeth and teeth-related problems before they cause significant damage. Dental check-ups should be conducted every six months, and may include dental cleaning, cancer screenings, oral health management, and patient education, among others.
