Preventative Dentistry Prosper, TX
Two Goals of Preventive Dentistry
Since childhood, we’ve all heard that visiting the dentist for regular checkups is important, but have you ever wondered why? Dr. Vimal Patel believes that preventive care visits to Prosper Smiles Family Dentistry accomplish two primary objectives:
1) Early identification of oral disease. Whether the disease in question is tooth decay, gum disease, TMJ disorder, or oral cancer, the earlier the diagnosis and treatment, the more successful that treatment is likely to be.
2) Provide professional maintenance. Even if you take especially good care of your teeth and gums at home, regular visits to the dentist can help you maintain a healthy oral environment and make sure restorations, dental prosthetics, and cosmetic procedures are functional and looking good.
The Real Value of Preventive Care
As the old saying goes, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” When it comes to your oral health, the value of prevention becomes abundantly clear. If you come in for your regular checkup and Dr. Patel notices the early signs of tooth decay, he can address the problem with a simple filling or even a fluoride treatment. If you wait until you have a toothache or until a problem begins to inhibit your daily routine, you will likely have to undergo a more invasive procedure that will cost you additional time and money. Consistent preventive care helps you avoid that unpleasantness.
