Learn About Preventive Dentistry

Published on October 30th, 2019

Preventive dentistry is when you care for your teeth in order to keep them healthy, helping you avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and other dental ailments. You can participate in many forms of preventive dentistry such as brushing your teeth twice a day every day and heading to the best dentist near Lakeview for a dental cleaning. 


What Does Preventive Dentistry Accomplish?

When you practice preventive dentistry, it helps to prevent you from developing dental problems later on. Make sure you use proper dental care to avoid situations such as cavities, gingivitis, enamel loss, and periodontitis.


Who Benefits?

Anyone can benefit from preventive dentistry because it helps keep you and your oral routine healthy. Children can benefit because their new adult teeth will come in strong and healthy, especially if they received dental sealants and topic fluoride treatments. Adults benefit too as they can keep their real teeth for the entirety of their lifetime. 


Practicing Preventive Dentistry

If you are looking to have good oral health, it’s important to follow these steps:

  • Brush your teeth daily: Brush your teeth for the recommended two minutes per session, and twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste that’s been approved by the American Dental Association. Be sure to brush your tongue to remove bacteria from your mouth and keep your breath fresh.
  • Floss daily: Flossing helps to clean tight spaces in between your teeth, especially if you have braces.
  • Visit your dentist: We recommend you visit us bi-yearly for dental cleanings and exams to allow us to spot any potential dental problems early on.
  • Eat well: Eating a balanced diet will protect your teeth by giving them the necessary nutrients. 


Contact the best dentist near Lakeview today and we will be sure to help you practice preventive dentistry.
