Preventive Dentistry

06/09/2019

Preventive dentistry is the practice of using treatments in order to reduce the amount of future dental problems. Often the cause of decay is simply that the teeth have been left untreated for a long time and have been neglected by a dental hygiene routine. Therefore, it is extremely important to have a good dental hygiene routine in order to keep cavities at bay. If you need some guidance on your oral health in Burnham, then our practice will be able to give you all the advice you need on how to maintain a correct hygiene routine. There are some specifics, such as interdental brushes, and brushing techniques that can be useful, however, as a good rule of thumb the teeth should be brushed twice a day and flossed once a day.

Dental Hygiene

Dental hygiene is at the forefront of preventive dentistry, and if you can keep a strong dental hygiene routine in your day to day life, then you will be able to avoid many issues. You have more contact with your teeth than any dentist can, so it is important to take responsibility for your dental health. If you are looking for a dentist, then find us for an appointment at the Dental Surgery Burnham. Oral health is extremely important to us, so if you are in any way concerned about your dental health then do not hesitate to contact us.

Scale and Polish

One method that will help to reduce plaque and cavities is a scale and polish. This is a service that will be offered by most dental practices and involves a deep clean of your teeth. It will also use extremely advanced tools and techniques in order to clean your teeth as deeply as possible and remove any hidden plaque that might remain.

Fissure Sealants

Fissure sealants are a fantastic way to ensure that your teeth are further protected against cavities. Often cavities can begin in hard to reach places, such as the deep crevices of your molars. Therefore, fissure sealants work by placing in a material that will fill in the deep grooves, and therefore make it harder for bacteria to settle and form tooth decay. One of the good things about fissure sealants is that they will only take a single session to apply, so will therefore be extremely low risk with a high reward, ensuring you will have extra protection from cavities. Fissure sealants do not prevent cavities on their own, so you will still need to brush as normal, however fissure sealants will simply help you remove bacteria.

Fillings

Fillings, while a healing method for the tooth, are a form of preventive dentistry. A cavity can be harmless if it has only breached the enamel, but when cavities are left is when they can become more dangerous, with the risk of infection. If you are concerned about your oral health in Burnham, then please feel free to book in for a consultation, and we will be able to advise you on the best course of action for you and your dental health.
