When it comes to your teeth, there are many things that could go wrong. Preventative care is essential for individuals of all ages to protect the teeth from the many things that could harm or damage them. Bacteria and plaque buildup that lingers on your teeth can cause cavities, gum disease, tooth decay, and other severe oral conditions. Even sores and wounds inside your mouth can all be harmful to your teeth and gums, which is why preventative care is so vital.
So, what is exactly is preventive care? This involves many of the things you do every single day to care for your teeth such as brushing and flossing. When you visit Markham 7 Dental for a routine checkup, we take certain steps to protect and enhance the health of your teeth. Preventative care services often include:
These preventative care services can vary depending on your family member’s age.
During the oral exam, your dentist will closely evaluate your mouth to look for any signs of possible disease or other severe oral conditions. Some types of gum disease affect as many as 75% of individuals over the age of 35. If left untreated, you may suffer from severe bleeding gums, pain, and in some cases, you may lose teeth. Additionally, many individuals do not realize they have gum disease, making these preventative care visits even more necessary.
