Preventive Dental Care
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!
Routine dental checkups are the most efficient protection against the development of tooth and gum diseases.
According to the latest research, oral cavity and tooth diseases are ever-increasing problem of a modern society.
Unfortunately, it has been revealed that certain systemic disease (cardiovascular disorders, diabetes, leukemia, HIV, etc.) are closely related to tooth and soft tissue diseases.
The Most Common Tooth and Oral Cavity Diseases
Three most common diseases in contemporary dentistry are dental cavities, parodontopathy (periodontitis) and malignant oral cavity diseases.
The very aim of preventive dental care is to prevent a disease from developing, and on top of that, it is to raise patients’ awareness of the significance of proper and regular maintenance of oral hygiene. Proper tooth brushing and oral hygiene are of key importance if you want to wear a healthy smile.
The habit to maintain proper oral hygiene significantly reduces the risk of tooth and gum diseases, and therefore special attention should be devoted to forming this habit from the earliest age.
Secondary prevention includes early procedures, which are used when diseases (cavities or parodontopathy) need to be prevented from further development.
