Preventive Dentistry

 

This is dental care that helps achieve and maintain good oral health. It involves taking care of your teeth and gums and keeping them healthy.
Day-to-day dental care involves your oral hygiene habits at home such as brushing, flossing, using night guards etc. Apart from this we advise regular dental checkups with your healthcare provider. This ensures that a thorough check is done for all your teeth, gums and tongue for any signs of disease. certain procedures can also be done to prevent tooth decays such as topical fluoride application or pit and fissure sealants.

Topical fluoride application: A gel/ foam/ varnish is applied onto the surface of the teeth. This helps to form a strong layer on the tooth surface which reduces the chances of tooth decay.
Pit and Fissure Sealants: Some people are more prone to caries because of the kind of tooth structure they have. If the grooves on the teeth (especially the molars) are very deep or curved, the regular toothbrush bristles may not be able to reach them easily to remove food particles. In such cases the grooves can be filled with sealants or a thin layer of filling material which will prevent food from lodging into the crevices.

Please note: these preventive procedures only last for some time after which they may need to be repeated.
