What Types Of Problems Can Preventive Care Inhibit?

Are you not quite sure about what types of problems preventive care actually helps you prevent? You may figure that the main point of brushing, flossing, and visits with our Rancho Cucamonga, CA team is to let you stay in the cavity-free club. While this part of your dental care journey certainly does help you limit the chance of tooth decay, there’s a lot more you may not be considering just yet! As you realize prevention offers you protection against an extraordinarily long list of possible concerns, it can help you feel much prouder of your efforts (and much more likely to continue on with best practices).

Hygiene-Related Problems

As mentioned, preventive care will help you avoid hygiene-related problems, such as tooth decay, that stem from taking not-so-wonderful care of your smile. When you allow plaque to accumulate (and to turn into tartar), you invite a slew of concerns related to the growing bacterial population in your mouth. This could include decay, infection, and gum problems. So, don’t shirk off your preventive responsibilities! They keep your smile healthy (and smelling fresh).

Functional Issues

If hygiene-related problems are mostly all about how clean you keep your smile, then what else is there, you ask? Well, there are functional issues that preventive care can help you avoid. This has to do with the way your every tissue works together as a well-oiled, well-working framework to provide function! Translation: Prevention can help you enjoy a smile that lets you chew and speak without problems like bruxism or TMJ disorder getting in the way!

Smile Stains

Guess what? All of those worries you have about how to keep your smile white are answered by preventive care. The brushing and flossing you’re practicing every day and the visits you schedule with our practice are the basis of a stain-free smile. Sure, over time you may need whitening. However, keeping stains from developing (on either pre-whitened or whitened teeth) is all about daily preventive care.

Dental Hygiene Uncertainty

Not sure about your dental hygiene? Remember that part of your care includes cleanings and checkups with us. When you keep up with them, you have plenty of time to bring your uncertainty to our attention, so we can fill you in on the helpful facts and advice you need to become certain of your habits!

Oral Cancer

Prevention can also help you avoid dealing with advanced oral cancer, as checkups let you detect it (and receive treatment) very early.
