Preventative Care Q & A
Why is preventive dentistry important?
You may think nothing of skipping your regular six-month dental examination with your dentist. However, this can leave your smile susceptible to developing problems that could otherwise be stopped. Having a proactive approach to dentistry versus a reactive approach allows patients to find problems early on before becoming a more expensive—and more damaging—problem for their smile. Routine visits will enable the dentist to monitor oral health and look for early signs that may indicate disease, decay, and infection, and react as soon as possible for the best outcome. The cost of routine visits is far less than the cost of repairing preventable damage, which makes these routine evaluations the smarter financial choice as well!
How can I care for my smile at home?
Preventive dentistry also includes the proper care every day. By brushing and flossing the teeth after every meal, you are taking the steps necessary to ensure a favorable report at your next dental appointment! Patients who are not caring for their smile appropriately may be risking extensive problems that can lead to costly repairs in the future. We also encourage patients to book an appointment at AlignBar if there have been any changes in the smile that are of concern, such as bleeding while brushing the teeth, swelling and redness of the gum tissues, or new sensitivity that may be indicative of a new cavity or infection. Even if your recall visit is months away, a phone call for an evaluation when problems arise is still warranted and often necessary. Our dental team can answer questions about home health care, including the right kinds of toothbrushes and kinds of toothpaste to use each day.
