Maintaining dental health helps patients look and feel their best and can positively affect their overall health as well. Preventive dentistry helps patients avoid the costly and invasive procedures that are often needed for serious dental conditions.
While many people dread going to the dentist or fear the drills and pain they associate with it, proper dental care does not have to include complex, painful procedures. Patients can minimize their visits to the dentist by practicing preventive dentistry. Preventive dentistry is the best protection against gum disease, tooth loss and other dental conditions. Preventive dentistry requires a collaborative effort between patient and doctor to ensure proper care each and every day.
Preventing dental conditions requires a lifelong commitment that usually begins with the appearance of the first tooth. Children should see a dentist shortly after this to begin developing proper dental hygiene habits. Parents play an important role in helping their children develop and maintain these habits throughout childhood and early adulthood.
