Preventive dentistry is the practice of routine and consistent care to maintain oral health. It focuses on protocols that facilitate teeth and gum preservation, reducing the necessity for invasive dental treatments as much as possible.
Decay and gum diseases are significant contributors to tooth loss. Preventive dentistry aims to diminish the risk of enamel loss, cavities, gingivitis, and periodontitis through the following:
- Routine check-ups – oral exams and x-rays can help detect dental problems and even symptoms of secondary diseases at an early stage.
- Regular treatments – cleaning, scaling and polishing put the mouth in good condition, and help to maintain dental health and hygiene.
- Educational instructions – optimal oral care products, correct brushing and flossing techniques, and dietary advice help to maintain oral hygiene.
Our team of healthcare professionals at The Link Dental Surgery is dedicated to healthy teeth and providing an oral care regime towards this goal.
