As the name implies, preventive dentistry is all about taking proactive measures to maintain the health of your gums and teeth. It focuses on preventing dental cavities, tooth loss, enamel wear, gum diseases, and other dental issues.
You must have heard the saying, “Prevention is better than cure.” The same applies to dental care too. Several other reasons stress the importance of preventive dental care, such as:
Pits and fissure sealants
Pits and fissures are more susceptible to decay. We apply sealants in the pits and deep fissures of your back teeth to help you prevent tooth decay.
We broaden your fissures and fossas through enameloplasty to prevent food lodgment, and hence, prevent tooth decay.
We apply fluoride gel on trays and place them on your teeth. It forms a layer of fluoride that fortifies them and helps to prevent decay.
Under oral prophylaxis, we perform a thorough dental cleaning to remove the plaque and tartar deposited on the surface of your teeth. It helps in maintaining the health of your gums.
We plan extractions of certain primary and permanent teeth to guide the erupting teeth into the correct position to avoid crowding of teeth. We do this procedure in children between 8 and 9 years of age.
We use space maintainers (customized appliances) to maintain proper space for permanent teeth in children with the early loss of primary teeth.
