Teeth are an incredibly strong part of the body – in fact, they’re the strongest bone we have!

Unfortunately, they don’t have the capacity to heal themselves and once your teeth surpass a certain degree of neglect, extraction is the only option. To help keep your natural teeth healthy for as long as possible, preventative dentistry is essential.

Preventative dentistry: what does it encompass?

“Preventative” dentistry is not limited to one specific treatment – it’s more of a holistic area of dentistry where treatment differs for everyone and their unique dental and hygiene needs. For example, one patient may require more check-up appointments with a dentist than a hygienist because they are susceptible to cavities, whilst another patient may have poor gum health and heathy teeth, requiring more regular appointments X-Rays to screen for mouth cancer and structural issues, scale and polish treatments to remove bacteria and biofilm and educational information that you might pick up during your check-ups are all factors contributing to preventing dental issues.

Why is preventative dentistry so important?

  • Attend regular check-ups, even if your teeth feel in good health. Your dentist may spot something that is symptomless and not visible to you at home when you brush.
  • Flag potential issues early to avoid complex and expensive treatment down the line.
  • Check-ups allow your dentist to suggest possible ways in which you can change your lifestyle to improve your dental and overall health.
  • Restorative treatment can be suggested to improve your smile in ways you may not have been aware of.
