Preventative Dental Care

Preventative care is the cornerstone of general dentistry and overall good oral health. By visiting the dentist regularly for cleanings, also known as prophys, and examinations, you can prevent problems from developing or solve other problems early, before they have a chance to spread. If you’re looking for a dentist who can help you maintain great oral health and protect your teeth and gums in the future, Dr. Fife of Fife Dental Care can help!

The Importance of Prevention

Teeth are made up of living tissues, but unlike other parts of your body, teeth
cannot fully restore themselves or regenerate after damage. This makes prevention especially important to oral health. Once tooth and gum disease have set in, the damage can be halted, but the damaged tooth enamel and other tissues
cannot regenerate.

Because the teeth you have as an adult are the only ones you will ever naturally grow, preventative dental care is necessary for maintaining a healthy smile well
into old age.

Routine Dental Care

Preventative care starts at home, with frequent tooth brushing and flossing. Diet, including sugary and acidic foods, also plays a role in your oral health. Your dentist can help you assess your current dental hygiene habits and find ways to improve.

However, even perfect dental hygiene habits at home aren’t always enough to prevent the development of tooth decay and gum disease. This is why visiting a dentist twice a year for routine cleanings and examination is important. A professional cleaning is more thorough than what you can achieve at home, and it affords the dentist an opportunity to identify potential issues as they develop so they can be swiftly dealt with.

Early Intervention

By identifying potential dental problems early in their development, we can help to correct them before they become a bigger issue. Dr. Fife will be happy to answer your questions and provide recommendations for maintaining great oral hygiene habits for a beautiful smile. Contact us today to get started!
