The Importance Of Preventive Care

We use our teeth so much that sometimes we start to take them for granted. It is easy to forget how vulnerable they are. And regardless of how far dental practices and technology have gotten, your natural teeth are worth protecting. At Conroe Family Dentistry in Conroe TX, our dentists, Dr. Logan Wood, and Dr. Radley Robins make it their priority to help their patients protect their oral health. One of the main aspects of dental care is preventative care. Read on to learn more about the importance of preventative dental care.

What is Preventative Dental Care

Preventative dentistry is oral care that is based on the idea that we can prevent poor oral health with the help of education, and treatments of any problems that occur early on, in order to maintain healthy teeth and gums. With good preventative care, you can avoid gum disease, cavities, enamel wear, and tooth loss. If a dental problem like gingivitis, for example, is left untreated, that bacteria in the gums is allowed to fester and progress the condition to peridontitis which is one of the leading causes of tooth loss in adults. Once the gum has gotten weak and the tooth loss has begun, it is significantly more difficult to get the full functionality of the teeth back, even with the help of artificial teeth. This is why if the problem was dealt with early on, then the tooth loss does not occur. This is one of the reasons why it is important to at least have annual dental visits. Dentists can educate you on your oral care needs.
