At MAK Dental in Edmonton, we offer preventive dentistry to help you maintain optimal oral health. This type of dental care involves regular check-ups at our office and the development of healthy habits such as brushing and flossing.
What does preventive dentistry involve?
To maintain optimal oral health, we recommend that you visit our office at least every six months for check-ups and cleanings. The following practices are designed to ensure that teeth are clean, strong, and healthy. Children should be taught proper oral hygiene at an early age.
Brush Your Teeth Daily
The most important part of preventive dentistry is to brush your teeth daily with fluoride toothpaste. Most people should replace their toothbrushes three to four times per year or as the bristles start to fray.
Daily flossing helps to clean out the tight spaces between the teeth. You may need to use floss threaders to get between the metal brackets if you have braces.
Visit Our Dentist
You should visit our office at least twice yearly for an exam to check for any problems in the teeth or gums. If you’re at high risk for dental problems, you’ll likely benefit from more frequent dental visits. Dental cleanings and exams allow us to identify the issues and take care of them right away.
Eat a Balanced Diet
Eating a balanced diet also helps to protect your teeth by providing them with the nutrients they need. Limit sugar intake, including simple carbohydrates like white bread, and drink plenty of water throughout the day.
Who can benefit from preventive dentistry?
Preventive dentistry benefits everyone, especially children, as it helps develop strong and healthy adult teeth. Dental sealants and fluoride treatments are effective in preventing tooth decay in children. Older adults and seniors can also benefit from preventive dentistry as it helps maintain their natural teeth. Oral health is closely related to overall body health, as harmful bacteria can breed inside the mouth. Keeping your mouth clean and healthy is crucial for maintaining good overall health.
