Many dental insurance providers include preventive dentistry as a part of their health plans to encourage families to visit the dentist as early as age one. Moreover, proper preventive care can help you save money by eliminating costly dental bills in the future.

Early Prevention Leads to Happy, Healthy Smiles

The American Dental Association recommends two visits for professional dental treatments and exams each year. Following these guidelines can help you and your dentist establish a good line of defense for future dental issues for all the members of your family. Protecting the health of your family is important to the team at Basin Dentistry. Visiting with a knowledgeable team member about the benefits of preventive dentistry can help you keep your family’s smile in amazing shape.

Preventive Strategies for Home

There are many ways to provide preventive dental care at home to help your child feel good about the health of their teeth and smile.

Practicing Good Oral Health Habits. The most important part of dental care is at-home brushing and flossing. This should be done at least twice a day and preferably after meals. Brushing removes dental plaque. This sticky, film-like substance coats the teeth and if not removed, can lead to tartar buildup. Tartar contributes to cavities and gum disease.

Fluoride. Fluoride is used to help strengthen the teeth and to prevent tooth decay. Treatments are available at Basin Dentistry to help children’s teeth grow strong and healthy, as well as home fluoride options.

Balanced Diet. Treats full of sugar and carbohydrates are always okay in moderation, but if too many sweets are consumed without proper oral health care it can cause cavities and tooth decay. Providing your children with a healthy, balanced diet can provide lifelong health habits that will benefit their dental and overall health.

Sealants. Sealants are a thin coating used on adolescents to help protect your child’s teeth from decay. The use of sealants can make it easier to maintain oral health at home.
