A Look into How Preventive Dentistry Impacts Your Everyday Life

Preventive Dental Services in Burlington area

The three branches of dentistry include restorative, cosmetic, and preventive dentistry. Preventive dentistry is considered the most important of the three because preventing an issue is always better than treating one. Dr. Thelam Nguyen and the team at Tansley Woods Dentistry in Burlington, Ontario, would like to share how preventive dental services can impact your life positively.

Preventive Dentistry

Preventive dentistry is performed to care for your oral health, keeping it in great shape and preventing issues from developing. When you visit your local dentist and oral hygienist, preventive dental services will consist of several treatments and procedures to keep your mouth, teeth, and gums in great shape. 

Preventative dental services include:

  • Professional dental cleaning
  • Dental examination
  • Oral cancer screening
  • Routine X-rays

While each preventive dental plan can be different based on the patient’s needs, the work will be done with the same goal of maintaining excellent oral health.

Your Role in Maintaining Oral Health

Your dentist will play a critical role in your preventive care, but you will be in charge of doing most of the daily work to maintain a healthy mouth. Brushing twice daily, flossing daily, and using a dental rinse are the most important things you can do at home. Avoiding foods high in sugar and acid is vital in preventing the development of cavities. If you grind your teeth, wearing a night guard is a great preventive measure to make sure you aren’t wearing down your teeth. Do these things in combination with seeing your dentist twice a year for a routine cleaning and exam, and you’ll have a lift up on your oral health.

How Preventive Dentistry Helps You

Preventive dentistry will help you in many ways. First, it will keep your oral health in great shape. It can save you money by helping prevent the need for more complex restorative treatments that your dental insurance (if you have it) may or may not cover. Not having to see your dentist for treatments will also save you time that you may not have in your already busy day.
