One of the best parts about preventive dentistry is that it can usually be part of a typical dental checkup. You won’t need to make any special appointments to get the treatment you need to keep your teeth in the best shape. As well as this, any treatments that you may require are often fast and can be completed without delay.

Benefits of Preventive Dentistry

There are numerous benefits of preventive dentistry that are certainly worth considering and keeping in mind. The key focus to remember is that preventive dentistry is about avoiding issues with your oral health that could happen but shouldn’t. These problems can cause severe problems down the line.

This type of treatment can be used to present issues that could cause you to lose teeth, impact the bone structure, develop severe infections are experience high levels of pain and discomfort. You can avoid all these issues when the right treatment plan is put in place. Some of the common dental issues that can be avoided include:

It’s important to note that the benefits of preventive dentistry apply to both adults and children alike. Regardless of age, you can see significant advantages from taking the right steps to protect your oral health.

Of course, children will gain the greatest benefits from this type of treatment. The reason for this is that it helps new teeth to develop in a way so they are strong and healthy. It ensures that they immediately develop the right habits. By bringing healthy habits in early, it guarantees that their oral health is not going to be neglected as they continue to age. This also helps ensure that they won’t require treatment like a gum debridement in the future. It’s necessary when the oral health of a patient has been neglected for years.

As well as this, it’s important to remember that good oral hygiene and health are not just confined to providing benefits to the mouth. Instead, it can help keep the whole body healthy. The reason for this is that the mouth can be a breeding ground for different types of bacteria. This bacteria can cause various different types of diseases that may quickly spread through the body. As such, maintaining your wellbeing will always require you to keep you a check on your oral health. This is exactly what preventive dentistry guarantees.

There is a wide range of health issues that have been linked to poor oral hygiene. The list includes:

Research studies have also provided evidence that poor oral health may have an impact on low birth weight and the chance of premature birth. If you are pregnant, you need to make sure that you continue to take the right steps to prevent issues with your health. This includes brushing and caring for your teeth the right way at home, while also continuing to get regular dental checkups. We will certainly be able to offer you key advice to ensure that you are keeping a check on your oral health throughout pregnancy.

Beyond Dental Treatments

We are proud to say that at Sherman Oaks Dental, we can offer a range of different treatment options related to preventive dentistry, many of which are listed above. However, it’s important to understand that this isn’t the only step that should be taken to help you avoid serious issues with your oral health. Instead, you should also make sure that you are taking steps in your personal life too.

Good oral hygiene is always going to be one of the key elements of preventive dentistry. This includes brushing standards as well as flossing. You should make sure that you are brushing twice a day for two minutes each time and flossing once a day too. If you do this, you will be able to avoid plaque and tartar building up in your mouth.

It’s important that you are adopting the correct brushing and flossing technique. A lot of people think that this comes naturally. However, that’s not always the case. It’s quite common for individuals to be brushing the wrong way or missing key areas. Some of the commonly missed areas include the edge of teeth closest to the gums and the back of the mouth.

That’s why we also provide educational support. During a checkup, we will make sure to check whether you are hitting all the areas of your mouth during your own brushing routine. If you are missing key areas, we can show you how to correct this issue.

Again, education is often ideal for young children. However, it can be beneficial for adults as well. Particularly for those who may have developed bad habits when brushing their own teeth. We can even recommend some of the best products on the market that will help ensure that your teeth remain in fantastic condition.

You may even want to think about your diet and we can offer you advice there, too. You might think that your diet only has a limited impact on your teeth, however, this is not the case. It’s important to make sure that you are getting the right nutrients and vitamins in your diet to ensure that your teeth remain healthy and strong. We can help ensure that you understand what your teeth need and how to look after them the right way.
