Preventative dentistry is an umbrella term, encompassing a number of processes and actions to preserve and improve your oral health.

From daily tooth brushing to regular appointments with a qualified dental hygienist, preventative dentistry is the best way of maintaining good oral health.

What does preventative dentistry involve?

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.

What are the benefits of preventative dentistry?

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.

What can I do myself to achieve good oral health?

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.
