Preventive dentistry

While preventive dentistry may not completely eliminate the need for dental treatments, it can go a long way. Neglecting your oral health, and regular check ups may result in costly dental treatments.

What Does Preventive Dentistry Do?

Preventive dentistry prevents people from developing dental problems later on in life. If you use proper dental care, you can avoid or lessen the effects of:

  • Cavities 
  • Gingivitis 
  • Enamel loss 
  • Periodontitis

Who Benefits from Preventive Dentistry?

Everyone benefits from preventive dentistry. It is especially beneficial for children because it allows their newly developing adult teeth to come in strong and healthy. Dental sealants and topical fluoride treatments help prevent decay in your children’s teeth. If you’re an aging adult, you can benefit from preventive dentistry as it may help in preventing tooth loss.
Oral health is connected to the health of your body as a whole. This is because the mouth is a breeding ground for harmful bacteria. Maintaining a clean mouth benefits your overall health.

What Are the Benefits of Preventive Dentistry?

With good oral hygiene, you can greatly reduce your risk of getting cavities, gingivitis, periodontitis, and other dental problems. This, in turn, can reduce your risk of secondary problems caused by poor oral health. Some health problems that may be linked to poor oral health are:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Osteoporosis
  • Respiratory disease
  • Certain types of cancer

People Say

Dr Louie is very friendly, reassuring and a pleasure to deal with. I had an implant and didn't feel a thing during, the same day or the next day, I feel absolutely fine which is quite unbelievable. Dr Louie gave me glasses like a virtual reality headset with a film to watch and earphones which means its keep you distracted and you don't see or hear what is going on. I think all dentists should do this. the price is very reasonable and the service very good. I cant recommend Dr Louie highly enough!
