The best way to save your teeth and keep a healthy smile is to take good preventive measures.
Regardless of your age or lifestyle, you can become at risk of various oral health problems if you don’t pay attention to the health of your teeth and gums. Preventive dentistry aims at halting dental problems before they develop.
Given that dental procedures are increasingly expensive, prevention is your best defence to avoid them. Not only can you save a huge amount of money, but you can also be free from the pain and discomfort caused by an aching tooth or bleeding gums.

Dental cleaning is a more comprehensive and professional way of cleaning your teeth and gums. Using special dental tools, the dentist removes the plaque and tartar deposits on and between the teeth and gum line to prevent or treat gum disease.
To prevent the formation of decay and cavities, your dentist can seal the fissures on your teeth with fissure sealants. The pits and fissures of teeth are vulnerable to decay. Fissure sealants are very effective preventative measures as they can prevent the formation of decay by up to 80-90%.
Tooth decay begins with the destruction of tooth enamel. Plaque constantly forms on your teeth. When you consume foods that contain sugar and starch, the bacterial plaque produces acids that attack your teeth. Over time, the tooth enamel can break drown and result in cavities.
