The Importance of Preventative Dental Treatment
Preventative dentistry means maintaining your oral health to prevent disease. For children this includes:
- Making sure your child has a Dentist by their first birthday
- Brushing and flossing
- A balanced, healthy diet
- Fluoride treatment
- Monitoring oral growth and development
- Oral health education
- Assessing risk for developing cavities
- Protection against injuries
- Managing oral habits
- Guiding the erupting teeth
There is more and more clinical evidence that oral health affects general health. Oral problems can interfere with eating, speaking, self-esteem and daily activities. Extensive decay can affect development and growth. Children experiencing tooth pain may not be able to focus on their studies at school. A healthy smile is more attractive, which positively impacts confidence. Most importantly, preventative dentistry results in less extensive and less expensive dental care in the future.
