Preventative Dentistry Overview

January 4, 2017 Preventative Dentistry

If you think you only need to visit your dentist when a problem occurs, then you are mistaken. It really is true that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and that is why you should see your dentist for regular preventative dentistry treatments. At Sana Dental in Edmonton, Dr. Alex Pavlenko and his staff would far rather see you for examinations and cleanings twice a year than for more costly treatments less frequently.

Keep Your Smile With Preventative Dentistry

If you have ever had to have extensive dental restorations, or even a complete smile makeover, or if you know someone who has, then you know that it is a mistake to neglect preventative dentistry. Not only are dental restorations expensive, they can also mean a lot of time spent in the dentist chair – and we are certain that you have other things you would prefer to do with your time.

With preventative dentistry, problems can be caught before they become serious. You’ll be able to enjoy a healthy mouth, and preserve your smile.

Enjoy Better Overall Health With Preventative Dentistry

Gum disease is known to be related to several general health problems, including an increased risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. If you practice good dental hygiene at home, and see your Edmonton dentist regularly, you can reduce your risk of general health problems. Also, when you see us for a checkup, Dr. Pavlenko will also screen you for oral cancer – this is a preventative dentistry measure that could save your life.

Enjoy a Healthier Lifestyle With Preventative Dentistry

Preventative dentistry keeps your mouth healthy, so you won’t have to feel embarrassed when you smile due to obvious dental issues. You’ll also be able to eat the foods that are good for you – all those healthy, crunchy fruits, vegetables and nuts, and lean meats – without discomfort due to missing or damaged teeth.

It is so much better to look after your teeth now rather than have them repaired later, so don’t neglect your preventative dentistry treatments.
