Following an adequate prevention program is essential to avoid dental pathologies in the future.
The accumulation of bacterial dental plaque on teeth and gums is responsible for most dental problems.
Our main objective will be its elimination, since it contains different bacteria that damage the enamel of the teeth.
By destroying the enamel, they usually cause caries and other gum problems such as gingivitis or periodontitis (in more advanced stages). It can therefore affect teeth, gums and bone.
Tooth decay is one of the most pronounced problems in our oral health. To avoid them, we must carry out periodic professional hygiene where fluoride concentrated gel is applied.
It is important to highlight an advantage of the prevention program for those patients who have already been treated. Periodic revision helps us to avoid relapses of periodontal disease, so that the treatment is carried out without new pathologies developing.
Regular checkups are vital to keep your teeth and gums healthy. If you wait until there is a problem with your teeth, the damage is already done. You can't always know that your teeth have a problem, so you may be surprised how your dentist determines it during a routine check-up.
Early detection can make a big difference. The sooner your dentist can detect cavities or other oral health problems, the easier it can be to treat and manage, and checkups also provide preventive care to reduce the risk of future cavities or infections.
Going to the dentist for a regular cleaning is the whole part of maintaining optimal oral health.
Plaque and tartar build up over time, often in the confines and smaller cracks of your teeth and gums. A professional dental cleaning, sometimes referred to as a "scraping and polishing" will remove these substances from your teeth, which makes it easier for you to clean and avoid bacterial buildup during your regular oral hygiene routine at home.
