Preventative Dentistry

By guiding patients toward excellent care of their teeth, dentists can help prevent long-term and often expensive restoration that results from dental disease. When caught in early, more treatable stages, the effects of dental decay, oral cancer and periodontal disease can be lessened.

Another vital part of preventative dentistry is education. Good oral hygiene should begin early, and continue throughout your lifetime. That should include dental instruction about the importance of proper nutrition and encouragement to cease smoking or to never start. During these office visits, dentists like those at Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville in New Jersey will advise you on the best way to brush and floss your teeth and guide you toward cosmetic procedures that can enhance your smile, like dental implants, orthodontics, and full mouth restoration.

Prevent Dental Problems with Five Healthy Habits

Bacteria in the mouth are the culprits in tooth decay, gum disease and tooth loss. However, five healthy habits can minimize the effects of bacteria. By following these simple steps, dental patients can enjoy healthy teeth and gums for the majority of their life.
