Preventive Dentistry

Preventive Dentistry

As its name suggests, preventive dentistry aims to prevent oral diseases. It works by making consultations periodically, where microorganisms, habits, and the patient’s responses regarding his or her mouth are examined. In order to have good oral hygiene, it is important to attend a dental consultation after 4 or 7 months. Of course, this depends on each person, since the waiting time can be lengthened or shortened depending on dental habits.

Preventive dentistry starts from the first tooth growth in a baby, even the gums can be checked before the baby’s dental development. When the child has control over himself, he is taught dental techniques, such as how to brush after every meal, how to brush, and how to rinse. In addition to alerting them if they feel any dental discomfort. Therefore, dentistry takes as a goal to maintain, provide and repair the oral health of people.

Even when our mouth is healthy, it is important to keep going to the dentist’s office, since it can help you prevent and maintain your health. On the other hand, if your oral health is affected and you go to the dentist for any possible disease, the consultation will be to assess and manage the situation in advance. It will also focus on restoring the patient’s oral health. In addition to this, the affected person will be taught to manage their condition and to use correct dental hygiene measures both at home and outside the home; in this way, we can corroborate that each patient helps themselves to maintain good oral hygiene.

Phases of preventive dentistry

  • Primary prevention: This has as its main goal or basis to reduce cases of dental or oral diseases. An example is a support for the placement of fluoride in the public drinking water supply, to reduce the percentage of dental caries in the population.
  • Secondary prevention: This is based on when the primary option is not present or was not taken into account, where there is already a pathology found in the teeth. Therefore, it is in charge of stopping the infectious factor through preventive dental treatment. From this, the specialist can achieve an improvement of the possible pathology and keep it in an acceptable control.
  • Tertiary prevention: This refers to the stage when pathology is already inside the patient and an early control cannot be provided. Therefore, the failure of the first stages is seen. Here the specialist must stop the lesion or disease and prevent its development. A dental technique, surgery, or treatment should also be applied depending on the pathology.

Preventive Dentistry Treatments

Preventive dentistry has several non-invasive treatments:

 

  • Pit and fissure sealant: The most common is the application of dental pit and fissure sealants, which are indicated for people with poor or incorrect oral hygiene habits. The application of these sealants prevents food from accumulating in small grooves that are conducive to tooth decay.

 

The application process of dental fissure sealing is very simple and painless, therefore it does not require anesthesia. It is so simple to perform that it can be done in a single visit to the dentist. To make a dental sealant, the dentist previously cleans the surface of the teeth to be sealed with a small brush and isolates the teeth to be sealed to prevent them from being contaminated with saliva, otherwise, the teeth could be compromised and the procedure would not be successful.

 

Subsequently, using the so-called bonding technique, which consists of applying substances and materials to “glue” the resin to the teeth (using light so that the resin hardens quickly), this technique will act as a sealant and maintain the adhesive state. After several minutes of placement, the patient does not need to wait to eat or drink.

 

It is not necessary to place fissure sealants in every posterior tooth, such as molars and premolars, since not all teeth have cavities with high depths that need to be filled.


However, the use of pit and fissure sealants is highly preferable to be done on teeth that have already grown out of the orbit in the dental line, avoiding the early appearance of dental caries or external diseases.


The benefit and duration of this dental procedure lie mostly in the use and care given by the patient. Therefore, it is absolutely essential to monitor the continuous development of fissures. In order to keep a healthy control of their dental growth and avoid future problems.

 

  • Application of fluoride: This treatment is usually used in young children to avoid the increase of dental cavities, to decrease the probability or decrease the chances of worsening. It is made of fluoride, which is a mineral that helps harden or strengthen the outer layer of the child’s teeth.

Keep in mind that these types of fluoride techniques cannot completely prevent cavities. This only prevents this type of disease when the child’s dental hygiene is careful, therefore: Maintains a daily brushing, uses considerable portions of toothpaste with fluoride, flosses frequently, go to dental appointments, and has a balanced diet.

 

This treatment is completely safe and is applicable to all ages by a certified specialist since its effectiveness in preventing cavities is quite considerable. The application of fluoride only requires a small portion and no fluoride enters our organism through its ingestion, since it is never swallowed. It has the particularity of hardening when in full contact with human saliva, therefore it is easy to apply in children, and the treatment is finished 5 to 13 hours after its application.


It should be noted that the product to be applied should be chosen well since certain brands of varnish can affect your teeth in different ways. Some can turn them yellow, others grayish. But, the teeth return to their natural color when the varnish falls off after the estimated time. It is a relief to say that most children like the feel of varnish in their mouths.
