Better than Treatment

You will receive routine oral health advice from Smile Dental in St. Clair, Toronto, as well as suggestions on how to practice preventive care so that your teeth and gums remain strong and attractive. By doing this, you can reduce the amount of treatment required.

What Is Preventive Care?

Preventive Dentistry or Preventive Care is a new way to help people keep their mouths healthy. It helps you keep your teeth and reduces the amount of dental care you need. Tooth loss is most often caused by decay and gum disease. The better you keep these two problems from happening or deal with them when they do, the more likely you would be able to keep your teeth for the rest of your life. In addition, when the dental team and the patient work together, it can make it less likely that the patient will need fillings or extractions. Our dentist may suggest a course of treatment to keep your mouth healthy, and then they’ll help you come up with a “maintenance plan” so it would stay that way.

Does Everyone Need Preventive Care?

Yes. The benefits of preventive care extend to everyone who still has some of their own teeth. Everyone benefits from routine dental exams, including those who are toothless. Regular dental visits help detect and treat conditions including oral cancer and denture stomatitis. It’s fantastic for kids and teens as well, but anyone may begin at any age.

What Are the Benefits of Preventative Dentistry?

Regular preventive dental exams can help your oral health in the following ways:

  • Reduces your chances of getting cavities, gum disease, and other serious dental problems.
  • It helps get people to brush their teeth at least twice a day and floss.
  • When your dentist finds dental problems early, the treatment and costs may be less.
  • Allows your dentist to check your mouth, jaw, neck, etc., thoroughly to find any problems.
  • Helps reduce dental problems caused by some long-term health problems. For example, dental and oral health can be affected by diabetes, osteoporosis, certain cancers, and eating disorders.
  • Regular preventive dental care is an important part of the whole person’s health for people with long-term health problems.

What Does Our Preventive Care in Toronto Involve?

Prior to talking with you about any possible treatments, our dentist will examine your teeth and gums. The main goal is to maintain your dental health. Gum disease and cavities are less likely to return in a healthy mouth.

  • Our dentist and her staff will clean all of the plaque and tartar off of your teeth.
  • Our dental team will show you the best way to brush and clean in between your teeth with interdental brushes or floss to get rid of the bacterial “plaque” that constantly forms on your teeth. For example, when you eat or drink something sweet, the bacteria in the plaque turn the sugar into acid, which can lead to tooth decay. Plaque can also cause gum inflammation, which makes the gums swell and hurt if it is not removed regularly and well. In addition, plaque turns into tartar, or calculus, which is hard and builds up on the teeth.
  • We will tell you about the best oral care products for you.
  • The dental team will probably ask you about what you eat and if you do things like smoke or drink.
  • Your dentist will also check that all of your fillings are in good shape and don’t have any rough edges that would make it hard to clean them.

What Is Your Role in Preventive Care?

You are mostly responsible for the preventive dental care you need. Early adoption of good dental habits can lower the incidence of gingivitis, gum disease, and cavities. It’s crucial to be aware of the following dental health information:

  • You should brush your teeth at least twice a day, usually in the morning and at night, using a soft-bristled brush and fluoride toothpaste. Your dentist will suggest the best toothbrush and toothpaste for you. They can also show you the right way to brush.
  • Floss daily to get rid of food stuck between your teeth before it becomes plaque.
  • After flossing, rinse your mouth with mouthwash to get rid of food bits.
  • Avoid foods that are acidic and can hurt your teeth.
  • Be careful with hard foods like some candies and foods with bones, seeds, or pits that could damage or chip your teeth.
  • Don’t smoke or use tobacco products because they can cause cancer and other problems with your teeth.
  • Use a mouth guard when playing some sports.
  • If you have the habit to grind your teeth at night, ask the dentist for a mouth guard to wear at night. This will help keep your gums from receding.
