Preventive Dentistry

Preventive dentistry helps you care for your teeth and gums so that they remain healthy. A good preventive routine keeps gum disease, cavities, enamel wear, and other dental problems at bay.

Home Care

Brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and use a dental rinse afterward. Daily flossing is also recommended to remove food trapped between your teeth.

Fluoride Applications

Regular fluoride treatments will prevent plaque and bacteria from building up and weakening your enamel. Your teeth will look and feel healthier.

Regular Dental Checkups

Routine visits allow your dentist to recognise and treat the early onset of cavities, gingivitis, and other problems. Early detection prevents expensive dental problems later.

X-rays

Dental x-rays will reveal decay, gingivitis, abscessed wisdom teeth, and other dental conditions that are not always immediately visible. Your dentist can then treat them before they progress.

Other aspects of a good preventive dental routine include:

  • Giving up smoking
  • Giving up sugary, cavity-causing foods
  • Regular calcium intake

Your dentist can provide even more suggestions on how to take the best possible care of your teeth and keep your smile both radiant and healthy. Contact your local Quality Dental Care practice today and prepare to enjoy optimal dental health.
