While many people dread dental visits and fear the drills and pain they associate with them, proper dental care does not have to include complex or painful procedures. In fact, most patients can minimize their visits to the dentist by practicing good oral hygiene and preventive dentistry.
Preventive dentistry, which involves a collaborative effort between patient and doctor to ensure proper care each and every day, is the best protection against gum disease, tooth loss and other dental conditions.
A good prevention plan requires regular brushing and flossing as well as annual or semi-annual visits to the dentists for checkups and thorough cleanings.
By taking these steps, most patients can avoid the costly and invasive procedures that are often required to treat serious dental conditions. Maintaining good dental health not only keeps patients looking and feeling their best, but it also contributes to good overall health.
