What Is Preventative Dental Care?
Preventive dental care is the combination of routine dental check-ups, teeth cleaning, and proper oral hygiene practices and treatments to ensure the optimal health, function, and aesthetics of your teeth and gums. Proper dental care lasts throughout the course of one’s life, from early childhood to adulthood. Dental exams and cleanings may be conducted every 3 to 4 months, or at a minimum every 6 to 12 months. During those sessions your hygienist will remove plaque and calculus deposits, if there are any. The patient might have to take dental x-rays and additional preventive dental treatments such as fluoride and sealants under the dentist’s recommendation. It is crucial to have regular dental exams because neglect can leave your oral health vulnerable to costly and painful dental problems in the future. If preventive dental care is always being observed, your teeth should look and feel healthy.
