A preventive Cleanings & Prevention program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental staff to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions.
Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet. Brushing your teeth at least twice a day using fluoride toothpaste helps remove plaque and bacteria, which can cause tooth decay and gum disease. Additionally, flossing daily aids in removing food particles and plaque from between teeth and along the gumline. Regular use of mouthwash can also help reduce bacteria and freshen breath. Besides these practices, it is essential to maintain a balanced diet and limit sugary snacks and drinks to protect teeth from decay. Furthermore, replacing toothbrushes every three to four months ensures effective cleaning. By making these habits a part of your daily routine, you can promote healthy teeth and gums, ultimately leading to a bright smile and overall well-being.
It is continued in the dental office by the efforts of your dentist and dental hygienist to promote, restore, and maintain your oral health. Prevention also includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Sealants and fluoride are also great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth.
Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident, beautiful smile. Contact us today to learn more.
