All you need to know about Preventive Dentistry

For lifelong healthy teeth and oral health, preventive dental care should be practiced. Preventive dentistry is the practice of taking care of oral health to reduce the risk associated with poor oral health such as cavities, tooth decay, gum infection, etc.

Common Practice for Preventive Dentistry:

Brushing Twice A Day: One should brush twice a day to avoid plaque and bad breath. You should brush your teeth once in the morning and once the night before going to bed. Proper brushing should be done for 2 minutes in a gentle manner and circular motion.

Flossing: Flossing your teeth is required to clean the debris and leftover food between the spaces of your mouth. This reduces the plaque and bacteria that cause the gum infection. To do this, use waxed dental floss.

Visit Private Dentist Basingstoke: Visiting a dentist every 6 months will help you to monitor your oral health. The dentist will inspect areas of your mouth such as teeth, gums, tongue, and cheeks to look for the signs of oral cancer and other diseases.

Balanced Diet: Eat crunchy vegetables, and fruits and drinking water to stay hydrated is good for your oral health. On the other hand, you should also limit your sugar intake, tea, coffee, alcohol, soda beverages, and cigarettes. These things damage your gums and tooth enamel. Give teeth all the essential nutrients, and minerals to make your enamel stronger.

With preventive dentistry, you can save yourself from many dental complications such as gingivitis, periodontal diseases, and tooth decay. Everyone including children can benefit from practicing preventive dentistry. Maintaining oral health by practicing good oral hygiene also saves you from other health problems that are caused by poor oral health. These health issues are diabetes, heart problems, osteoporosis, and respiratory problems.  Moreover, poor oral health during pregnancy can also cause complications such as low birth weight and premature oral health.

Furthermore, preventive dentistry also saves your money in the long run as it is easier to treat dental disease in the initial stages.
