Preventive Care Dentistry

‘Prevention is better than cure’ goes the saying. One would always prefer to go by the saying or would at least be advised to go by the saying when it comes to ‘cure’ in dentistry.

Odontophobia is one of the most common problems faced in dentistry. There is a lot of positive and feel good attitude that can be experienced by taking up a preventive measure to avoid diseases of the teeth or gum.

Amongst the various specialties in dentistry, Preventive dentistry is one of the most productive side of dentistry. Of course the productive side of delivering healthier teeth and gums.

Preventive Dentistry is that branch of dentistry that aims at providing the care that is needed to keep the gums and the teeth healthy. It helps in keeping the oral cavity healthy thereby preventing the occurrence of bad breath, cavities, gum diseases or other oral diseases.

Fluoridated toothpaste along with proper brushing techniques is required to help prevent cavity formation in the teeth.

Pit and fissure sealants
These are one of the best preventive solution for dental cavities. Our teeth have natural grooves and pits in them which are very deep in some patients. These deep grooves cant be cleaned by tooth brush and are most common site for dental cavities. If they are sealed early then more than 50% cavities can be prevented. Please ask for these to prevent dental cavities in your children. We have different kinds of sealants according to individual needs.
Fluorides: In case of permanent tooth, fluoride application will be required which will help strengthen the enamel and provide a shield to prevent attack by bacteria.

Orthodontics: Not only in preventing cavities but also in aligning the tooth to proper position in the oral cavity, preventive dentistry comes into play.

Preventive dental measures to keep the teeth and gums healthy:

• Brush your teeth twice a day with a fluoridated toothpaste
• Replace the toothbrush once in every three months
• Rinse your mouth after having sweets and other sticky food.
• Use other dental aids like dental floss, inter dental brush, mouthwash etc.
