Preventive Dental Care and Its Value to Your Dental Health

Preventive Dental Care Service Burlington

Many patients only visit the dentist when restorative work becomes necessary, but you should not neglect preventive dental work. Oral health can sometimes be taken for granted, but it is an essential component of our everyday lives. Superior oral health allows us to smile, speak, and eat without issue. Preventive dental care, including at-home brushing, flossing, rinsing, and making regularly scheduled appointments with a dentist, are habits which should be established early in life. Dr. Thelam Nguyen and the team at Tansley Woods Dentistry provide preventive dental care services to patients in the Burlington, Ontario area.

The Importance of Preventive Dental Care

While you may be doing your part at home with regular brushing, flossing, and rinsing, this is just one part of preventive dental care. It is recommended that you see a dentist twice a year for a dental cleaning and examination. Getting your teeth and gums cleaned will allow for plaque and tartar buildup in hard-to-reach areas of your mouth to be removed before it leads to oral health concerns, including tooth decay and gum disease. When you visit your dentist for a cleaning, an oral examination will also be performed to address any developing issues like minor cavities. Getting a small filling beat getting a root canal due to advanced decay! Many dentists will also include an oral cancer screening as part of the examination to look into any symptoms.

With early treatment, many oral diseases can be prevented. For instance, children who receive dental sealants are 80% less likely to develop cavities than those who do not. One significant advantage, outside of good oral health that comes with preventive dental care is how much it can save you in the long run. The savings from not having to pay for expensive restorative care is especially important to low and middle-income families who may have less disposable income to throw at dental health care.
