Preventive dentistry is one of the most important ways to ensure that your teeth and gums remain healthy for life.
When you routinely care for your teeth and gums, through regular brushing, flossing, and dental visits, you increase the likelihood of having a healthy, bright white smile with strong teeth for life.
We understand that for many patients, visiting the dentist can be quite traumatic; preventive dentistry is last on the list of priorities. Luckily, we also understand the reasons why people avoid the dentist. That’s why we strive to provide a relaxing environment for all our patients. Preventive dental care need not be stressful or traumatic. Here at dhealth Dentistry, we recommend that you visit Dr Anna at least once every six months.
Benefits of Preventive Dental Care & Oral Health
- By maintaining optimum dental health today, you can reduce the risk of ending up with oral health issues such as tooth decay and cavities.
- Preventive dental care, and regular visits to your dentist, can prevent a simple filling from turning into a major problem. It can prevent a small build-up of tartar turning into serious gum disease or periodontitis. By preventing these major types of dental health issues, not only do you remain healthy, but your wallet isn’t hit with expensive dentist bills.
- If you maintain a high standard of oral health, then it is likely that your overall health and wellbeing will be as equally positive. Dental health is very closely linked to your overall health, so it’s always a good idea to keep both in tip top shape.
