Preventative dentistry refers to the actions you and your dentist can take to ensure that you have a good oral health. There are different ways to prevent any dental problem and tooth decay.
At-Home Preventative Dentistry
There are different things that you can do at home to take care of your teeth and prevent dental problems. Brushing and flossing properly are the best way for you to prevent tooth decay at home. At-home prevention also includes eating a balanced diet that is low in sugar to reduce the bacteria in your mouth that cause tooth decay.
In-Office Preventative Dentistry
While taking care of your teeth at home is very important, there are also several things that your dentist can do to help you have a healthy smile. Scheduling regular dental exams can help your dentist catch problems early and identify any issues in your at-home care.
