Preventive dentistry is the practice of caring for one's teeth to keep them healthy. This practice helps in avoiding cavities, gum disease, enamel wear and tear etc. There are many forms of preventive dentistry, such as daily brushing and annual dental cleanings. These practices are designed to ensure that teeth are clean, strong, and white.
The most important part of preventive dentistry is to brush your teeth daily with fluoride toothpaste approved by the Indian Dental Association(IDA).It is recommended that one should replace their toothbrush three to four times a year or when the bristles start to crumple.
Daily flossing is also recommended. Flossing helps to clean out the tight spaces between the teeth. People with braces may need to use floss threads to get between the metal brackets. People should see their dentists at least once a year for an exam to check for any problems in the teeth or gums. Eating a balanced diet also helps in protecting the teeth by providing them with the nutrients they need.
Preventive dentistry prevents people from developing dental problems later on. Cavities, gingivitis, enamel loss, and periodontitis can all be avoided or mitigated with proper dental care. Ageing adults benefit from preventive dentistry because it helps them to keep their real teeth. Oral health is connected to body health as a whole. The mouth is a breeding ground for harmful bacteria. Thus, maintaining a clean mouth would benefit your overall health.
