The Importance of Preventative Dentistry

Preventative Dentistry | Lockport Dentist

Going to the dentist isn’t on anyone’s list of their favorite ways to spend their time, but visits every six months can be helping you avoid painful and costly dental problems. Igor Kaplansky and his team try to focus on preventive dentistry in order to keep your mouth and teeth healthy and avoid the development of gum disease and tooth decay.  

What is Preventive Dentistry?

Preventive dentistry is defined as any form of dentistry that helps patients prevent developing dental concerns such as gum disease and tooth decay, which are the main causes of tooth loss. During your routine dental visits, your dentist will conduct preventive treatments such as cleanings and fluoride treatments to remove plaque and tartar and protect teeth against decay. They will also perform an exam to make sure that there are no signs of cavities and gingivitis.

Importance of Preventive Dentistry

  • Maintain a healthy mouth – Alongside daily brushing and flossing, preventive dentistry will help you keep your oral health on track. Good oral hygiene and regular dental visits is often enough to keep you from developing any problems.
  • Fewer dental visits – As long as there are no signs of gingivitis or cavities, or we catch these problems early enough, you won’t have to see us more than two times a year. If we do find early signs of decay or disease, we can come up with a plan to reverse them through changes to your oral care routine, diet, or toothpaste and without the need for further treatment.
  • Save money and time – Once gum disease and tooth decay have progressed past the early stages and cause damage, treating them can be expensive and can require extra visits to the dentist. In some cases, you may even have to come in more frequently for cleaning and exams so we can keep an eye on the progress of these issues.

Your Oral Health

Skipping dental visits can be detrimental to the health of your teeth and gums. Twice yearly dental visits are worth the time it takes to prevent you from developing serious dental health problems.
