“A stitch in time saves nine” is every bit as valid a maxim in dentistry as it is in life. There are many ways to preempt various buccal problems before they become serious, which makes it all the more important to visit a dentist with a preservation-oriented, non-interventionist mentality. A dentist who would much rather help you keep your own teeth than install prostheses, and who subscribes to MINIMALLY INVASIVE dentistry. A dentist who cares for their patient’s well-being.
These ways to avoid dental problems are what we call preventive care, such as for example fluoride gel treatment for children, or adults with a high incidence rate of cavities, in order to prevent further cavity development.
Another facet of preventive care is properly feeding a child whose teeth are still growing, in order to avoid calcium deficiencies and to ensure strong dental enamel. Avoiding bad habits such as sucking on one’s thumb, breathing through one’s mouth, etc., will also help prevent deviations in their tooth growth.
Buccal cleaning is also an important part of preventive care, as regular mouth cleanings will help prevent gum problems like gingivitis or periodontitis.
Learning proper oral hygiene is quite effective at preventing many problems, as well.
