Preventative Dentistry

Preventative dentistry is the practice of caring for ones teeth to keep them healthy by avoiding cavities , gum disease, enamel wear and more . There are many forms of preventative dentistry such as daily brushing and annual dental cleans. Children should also be taught proper oral hygiene at an early age . The most important part of preventive dentistry is to brush teeth daily with fluoride toothpaste approved. Most people should replace their toothbrushes three to four times a year or as the bristles start to fray. Daily flossing is also recommended. Flossing helps to clean out the tight spaces between the teeth. People with braces may need to use floss threaders to get between the metal brackets. Annual dental cleanings and exams allow dentists to identify problems and take care of them right away. People should see their dentists at least once a year for an exam to check for any problems in the teeth or gums. Eating a balanced diet also helps to protect the teeth by providing them with the nutrients they need.

What Does Preventative Dentistry Do?

Preventive dentistry prevents people from developing dental problems later on. Cavities, gingivitis, enamel loss, and periodontitis can all be avoided or mitigated with proper dental care.

Who Benefits from Preventative Dentistry?

Everyone benefits from preventive dentistry. Children in particular benefit because it allows their newly developing adult teeth to come in strong and healthy. Aging adults benefit from preventive dentistry because it helps them to keep their real teeth. Oral health is connected to body health as a whole. This is because the mouth is a breeding ground for harmful bacteria. Maintaining a clean mouth benefits overall health.

What Are the Benefits of Preventative Dentistry?

With good dental hygiene, patients greatly reduce their risk of getting cavities, gingivitis, periodontitis, and other dental problems. This, in turn, can reduce the risk of secondary problems caused by poor oral health. this incorporates regular check-ups, cleaning of the teeth to prevent gum disease, oral hygiene education and placement of fissure sealants on molar teeth to prevent dental decay.

5 star Though I live on a different continent, Dr. Kushal has been a family friend since the beginning of time. Being a dentist here in the US, and swapping dental stories when we all met in the UK, I have the utmost confidence in Dr. Kushal! If I lived there in Australia, I would definitely be a patient there!!!! Looking forward to your many years of success!!! Cheers!

No longer scared of the dentist. If your looking for a local dentist try Arca in Currambine. I love how they don't do anything drastic unnecessary and i felt very well looked after PLUS it didn't cost me an arm and a leg- so i now have no excuses not to have a check up regularly! Feeling relaxed now....excuses not to have a check up regularly! Feeling relaxed now....

Well had an unexpected visit to dentist today so looked up on Google who to go to . Went to ARCA that was local and my experience was amazing right from reception to dentist Ms. Bolton and even assistant . I get very anxious at the dentist due to many years of orthodontic work , they made me feel comfortable and understood my fears . Didn't cost an arm and a leg either . Very happy customer here and highly recommend them.
