At Marylebone Implant Centre, we believe that preventative dentistry is better than cure and we emphasise the importance of ongoing good oral hygiene. Effective preventive dentistry combines at-home oral care with regular visits to the dentists for check-ups and cleanings. Even if you brush and floss your teeth daily, you still have to visit the dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings to ensure that you are not suffering from gum disease or tooth decay – the two most common causes of tooth loss. Working together with your dentist will help prevent the need for complex and expensive treatment.
Preventive care strategies can help your oral health
Basic preventive oral care strategies are easy to follow by both children and adults and will help you maintain your smile healthy and plaque-free between visits to your dentist. When it comes to personal oral care, the most important preventative dentistry technique is brushing and flossing your teeth at least twice a day to remove food debris and dental plaque from your teeth and gums.
When you brush your teeth, ensure that you gently place the toothbrush below your gum line to remove as much plaque as possible.
If not removed, plaque can harden into tartar, a sticky substance full of bacteria than can cause tooth decay and gum disease. Your dentist can remove plaque and tartar during your regular cleaning, yet it is really important to remove as much as possible from your teeth after each meal.
Taking good care of your teeth and visiting the dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings is the best strategy for keeping your teeth and gums healthy and plaque-free for a long time. In some cases, your dentist may recommend fluoride treatment after a cleaning, to strengthen your teeth and prevent tooth decay.
Protect your healthcare by practicing preventative dentistry
Oral health is linked to overall health, therefore, preventive dentistry is important to your overall wellbeing. Oral diseases can hinder your ability to eat, chew or speak properly, affecting your basic daily routine and self-confidence. More importantly, children who suffer from oral diseases may experience development problems.
At Marylebone Implant Centre we work to keep your teeth and gums healthy. The biggest part of achieving and preserving a healthy smile involves a commitment to healthy practices and proper oral hygiene.
