Preventative Dentistry in Burbank, Oak Lawn, Chicago IL

Preventive dentistry: Practice Oral Health

What is Preventative Dentistry?

Preventative Dentistry refers to the practice and procedures that contribute to the overall health of a patient's teeth and reduce the chance of further negative diagnoses. Preventative dentistry is both instructive, where the dental staff informs a patient the best way to take care of their teeth or follow up from a visit, and procedural, where a dentist will take action during a visit to prevent further cavities.

Preventive Dentistry at Home

To prevent cavities and increase the health of your teeth, here are some of the biggest contributing factors toward a healthy mouth that do not involve help from Dr. Saeed & Dr. Ansari:

  • Brushing your teeth – The most obvious choice brushing your teeth is of particular importance after eating sweets. Remember to brush your tongue.
  • Flossing – Flossing is always stressed, but rarely done! Remember flossing should be performed daily – a lot of the harmful bacteria live between your teeth or in places that your toothbrush cannot reach
  • Eat a balanced diet – Limiting your sugar intake can be one of the biggest factors toward what happens in your mouth. Remember, bacteria and infections love sugar. Drink plenty of water, especially after sweets.
  • Genetics – Unbelievably, some factors like saliva production are completely out of your control! Some people are more prone to cavities than others.
