From daily tooth brushing to regular appointments with a qualified dental hygienist, preventative dentistry is the best way of maintaining good oral health.
There are several key aspects of preventative dentistry, all of which work together to keep your mouth and teeth healthy. A personal dental hygiene routine of daily brushing and flossing is especially important. To further minimise the buildup of plaque around teeth and gums, bi-annual visits to a qualified dental hygienist are also recommended.
Regular dental examinations are essential, allowing for early detection of any changes to your oral health. Your dentist may also take routine X-rays to check for early signs of decay.
At Aurora Dental and Implant Clinic, we truly believe that prevention is better than cure. An excellent dental hygiene routine should be paired with regular dental checkups to maintain your oral health at all stages of life.
Preventative dentistry is effectively a partnership, placing you and your dentist together on a mission to preserve your oral health. Your dentist can provide advice and care through regular appointments, completing any necessary treatment – however, this is wholly more effective when paired with personal action such as regular flossing, brushing twice daily with a fluoride toothpaste, and using mouthwash between meals.
