The dentistry branch specialized in taking care of teeth to keep them healthy is known as Preventive Dentistry, and it helps eliminate cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and much more. We perform all types of dental practices in our dental clinic that range from daily brushing to professional dental cleanings.
Practices Involved In Preventive Dentistry
Brushing is the most crucial part of Preventive Dentistry. According to the American Dental Association (ADA), brushing your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste helps you eliminate bacteria and prevent the teeth from further damages. Also, keep in mind to use a soft-bristled toothbrush and replace them three to four times a year.
After brushing, the next significant thing is flossing, and it helps remove food particles from between teeth. Even if you have braces, floss proves to be the most effective thread to clean the particles between the metal brackets. We will provide you with detailed instructions on how to use flossing accurately.
Eat a Balanced Diet
Eating a balanced diet also helps you to keep your teeth healthy, and it provides nutrients to the teeth they need. We advise our patients to limit their sugar intake and increase vitamins to keep their teeth healthy.
