Benefits and Importance of Preventive Dentistry

Preventive Dentistry

Healthy teeth don't just boost your confidence with an attractive smile, they also help you properly chew food, preventing digestive problems such as bloating or nausea. You can improve your oral health and get that near-perfect smile with preventive dentistry. RGC Dentistry can help keep your teeth healthy.

What Is Preventive Dentistry?

Preventive dentistry involves good oral hygiene, such as daily brushing and flossing — prerequisites to having strong and healthy teeth. Visiting your dentist regularly for a professional checkup or dental cleaning is also highly recommended. Eating a balanced diet, preferably one that's low in sugar, is advised to prevent tooth decay, gingivitis and tooth loss. 

If you have dental problems, please visit us as soon as possible for a dental checkup. We'll check the condition of your teeth and gums and recommend effective solutions. Our team can also educate you on how to properly care for your teeth or which dental products are suitable for you. We might also recommend getting dental sealants or fluoride treatments to reduce cavities and improve oral health. 

Benefits of Preventive Dentistry

Dental problems, such as tooth decay, can lead to an infection or even tooth loss. Untreated gingivitis can lead to periodontitis which may also result in tooth loss and is linked to diseases such as Diabetes, Alzheimers and a life-threatening condition called endocarditis. You can avoid serious health problems by caring for your teeth. 

Good oral hygiene, such as brushing and flossing at least twice a day, can prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Dental treatment can be expensive, so if you want to save money, we recommend caring for your teeth the right way. 

You can maintain good oral health with preventive dentistry. We recommend getting regular checkups; early detection may reduce the need for costly dental treatment. Talk to your doctor and dentist if you have other medical conditions, such as diabetes, to help you better maintain your oral health.
