General Dentistry – Preventive Dentistry & Oral Hygiene
The systematic and occasional preventive dental checkup is essential for the proper check of our oral health. It ensures an early diagnosis of issues in the oral cavity and helps us to proceed directly to the planning and implementation of the most effective treatment, depending on each individual case (Personalized Treatment).
Preventive dentistry is aimed at properly educating young and adult people about oral hygiene and their teeth in order to identify early problems such as tooth decay, periodontal disease, mucosal diseases, or even oral cancer, and be treated successfully.
Proper Oral Hygiene for Adults & Children
The most primary role for a bright and healthy smile is the learning of proper oral hygiene and specifically the correct way to take care of our teeth daily. Key elements of preventive dentistry include fluorosis, sealants or preventive seals.
During the process of fluorosis, the dentist topically places a special fluoride cream in order to achieve the recalcification of the teeth and to strengthen their external layers.
Sealants: Preventing seals
Sealants are a simple, painless and safe method of preventing tooth decay. It is a thin-layer resin that is placed in teeth holes and tears mainly in young children and advanced ages to protect against tooth decay and in teeth with special anatomical morphology that they can’t be cleaned by a toothbrush deeply.
A visit to the Dentist
A systematic and recurrent check by the dentist is essential for monitoring our oral health and for early diagnosis of issues in the oral cavity. The visit to the dentist should be done preventively every 6 months.
