Oral Hygiene and Preventative Dentistry
Oral hygiene is at the heart of good preventative dentistry. The objective of preventive dentistry is to avoid dental decay and gum diseases by ensuring a healthy environment for the teeth and gums, and to catch dental problems in the early, more treatable stages.
What is Basic Oral Hygiene?
At the very basic, this includes cleaning the teeth daily, starting when the first tooth emerges and having regular dental check-ups performed by professionals. Such preventive habits may spare the child more expensive and extensive treatments in the future. Among adolescents and adults, preventive dentistry also includes personal dental care like brushing, flossing and using mouth rinses and fluoride applications.
