Benefits of Preventive Dentistry

Toothaches, gum disease and other dental problems are commonplace but can often be avoided if care is taken before these problems arise. Preventive dentistry aims to keep teeth and gums healthy and cut down on the need for urgent visits to a dentist.
The concept is simple and the benefits enormous.
– Reduction in loss of tooth enamel
– Healthier teeth and gums
– Less need for fillings or extractions
Your dentist will offer advice and “work out a maintenance plan” to keep your teeth and gums in the best condition possible. A detailed article about preventive dentistry can be read at https://www.dentalhealth.org/tell-me-about/topic/caring-for-teeth/preventive-care-and-oral-hygiene.
