What is it?
Preventive dentistry is the practice of caring for your teeth to keep them healthy. This helps to avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear and more.
There are many forms of preventive dentistry, such as daily brushing and regular dental cleanings. To maintain optimal oral health, the Australia Dental Association (ADA) recommends visits to the dentist at regular intervals determined by a dentist. These practices are designed to ensure that teeth are clean, strong and white.
This also helps children learn proper oral hygiene at an early age.
Everyone benefits from preventive dentistry. Children in particular benefit because it allows their newly developing adult teeth to come in strong and healthy. Dental sealants and topical fluoride treatments help prevent decay in your children’s teeth. If you are an ageing adult, you can benefit from preventive dentistry because it helps you to keep your real teeth.
