The Importance of Preventative Care
Preventative care is the foundation of your smile and oral health. So it’s the foundation of our dental practice as well. We want to ensure all of our patients know how important preventative care is to their smiles. We’ll tell you if we have concerns with how you’re taking care of your teeth back at home. We may recommend certain products that are specifically tailored to the unique conditions of your mouth.
As dentistry evolves and changes, new products and technology come out. For instance, there’s toothpaste that’s ideal if you drink soda or acidic foods often, protecting layers of your enamel. There are also toothpastes to help with dental staining, sensitivity, and gum health. We’ll recommend these if we notice that you’re in danger of succumbing to any more serious conditions. They can play a big part in preventing them from becoming fully formed.
Preventing Plaque Buildup
Over time, plaque can cause various dental issues, requiring complex dental treatment. It saves money, time, and discomfort if you properly care for your teeth. Congressional Dental Care believes in equipping its patients with the education needed to maintain proper oral health. Plaque can be minimized and eliminated with proper at-home oral hygiene and regular visits to our dentist office.
Even if you brush regularly at home, you may still suffer from oral health issues. Even the best toothbrush can’t get absolutely everywhere in the mouth. Specialized dental tools are the only things that can get into certain areas of your mouth. Without regular dental cleanings, plaque continues to build up in these areas. You’re susceptible to this leading to tooth decay or gum disease as the plaque turns to tartar and hardens on your teeth.
Tips on Preventing Plaque
Brush and floss your teeth properly. Brush and floss your teeth at least twice daily to remove harmful bacteria and food particles that can stick to your teeth. Properly cleaning your teeth can help minimize your chances of gum disease and tooth decay, which can develop from plaque if not properly treated. Brushing and flossing regularly is one of the simplest methods a patient can do. However, it has some of the greatest benefits for your oral health.
Rinse with an ADA-approved antibacterial rinse or mouthwash. Mouthwash and antibacterial rinses help remove debris and bacteria in the mouth. Rinse for no less than 30 seconds to properly clean your teeth.
Schedule routine preventive care visits to Congressional Dental Care. Preventive care visits allow Dr. Sarkarzadeh to properly examine your mouth, teeth, gums, and jaw. During a preventive care visit, patients will also receive a dental cleaning. Dental cleanings deep clean your teeth using specialized tools and materials only found in a dentist’s office.
What Falls Under General Dentistry?
Typically, general dentistry focuses on preventative care. Exams and dental cleanings are part of the regular dental services you get when you see us bi-annually. Preventative measures like dental sealants and custom mouthguards also fall under general dentistry. Common problems like tooth decay have general dentistry solutions. Both dental fillings and root canals treat infection in your teeth.
