Do You Practice Preventative Care?
One of our goals is to help prevent dental issues from occurring. The best way to do this is with the help of preventative dental care. When you care for your teeth properly, you have a better chance of keeping your natural teeth for your lifetime. Preventative dentistry focuses on keeping your teeth and mouth free from decay and disease. When you practice good preventative care, we are able to detect any problems in your mouth and treat them in the early stages. Read on to learn more about the importance of preventative dental care and how it can affect your oral health.
What is Preventative Care?
We believe that our patients should be proactive and not reactive with their dental health. This means that you do all you can to prevent any issues with your oral health instead of reacting once a problem arises. We believe that all of our patients should receive preventative dental care. Preventative dental care is the act of caring for your teeth properly to avoid dental issues and problems in the future. We want to help our patients create a solid foundation for their oral health.
The Best Ways to Practice Preventative Dentistry
The best thing that you can do for your teeth and mouth is to stay on top of your oral health needs. This includes making sure to visit our office for a routine hygiene examination and cleaning, as we have recommended. For many patients, this is every six months, but for some patients with specific conditions, we may recommend visiting more often than that. In addition, it is equally important to maintain your oral hygiene routine between visits. Most of your dental care falls into your hands. It is imperative that you brush your teeth for two minutes twice a day and use dental floss daily as well. Regularly check your teeth and gums and look for anything that doesn’t seem right. This can be done by visually looking in your mouth as well as by running your tongue along your teeth and gums. Be sure to contact us if you experience any discomfort or notice a problem.
We want to help you and your family have excellent oral health for many years to come. If you or a loved one needs a routine hygiene examination, be sure to contact our office located in Cincinnati, OH to schedule an appointment. We look forward to seeing you soon!
