Prevention Is the Best Protection Against Infections of the Smile
- Posted on: Dec 15 2022
Taking good care of the smile means more than just brushing and flossing. Patients who are more proactive about their oral health and wellness will often benefit from healthier smiles. But what can be done to prevent problems such as cavities and gum disease? Drs. Nancy Gill, Dallas Kenson, and Evelyn Qi of Golden Dental Solutions provide Golden, CO, area patients with education on preventative care solutions available to help in achieving beautiful and healthy smiles for life!
What are some common preventative dentistry solutions for patients?
Some common preventative dentistry solutions for patients include regular brushing and flossing, using fluoride toothpaste, having routine dental check-ups and cleanings, and practicing good dietary habits. In addition, wearing a mouth guard during sports or receiving sealants on the molars can also help prevent tooth decay and damage. By working with Drs. Nancy Gill, Dallas Kenson, and Evelyn Qi of Golden Dental Solutions in Golden, CO, you can find out what you need to be doing to ensure that you have a healthy, beautiful smile free from periodontal disease and tooth decay!
Why should I participate in preventative care?
It is important to remember that maintaining good oral hygiene and taking preventive measures can ultimately save both time and money in the long run by avoiding more extensive (and expensive) dental procedures. In addition, many dental insurance plans provide full or almost full coverage for preventative treatments such as cleanings and examinations every six months. By scheduling these routine visits, our dental team can spot early signs of problems and help by offering treatment to keep the condition from worsening. For example, cavities that are not treated can become larger and deeper and result in an infection inside the tooth that might require root canal therapy or permanent extraction and replacement.
