Preventive Dentistry in Reno, NV

Preventive dentistry refers to the procedures that contribute to the overall health of a patient’s teeth and reduce the chance of future negative diagnoses. Preventive dentistry is both instructive, where the dental staff informs a patient of the best way maintain or improve their oral health, and procedural, where a dentist will take action during a visit to prevent further issues.

Preventive Dentistry at Home

In order to prevent oral issues and increase the health of your teeth, there are basic oral hygiene practices you should be implementing on your own. Here are the basic at-home hygiene habits everyone should be doing daily:

  • Brushing your teeth – The most basic dental hygiene habit. It is recommended that you brush twice daily for 2 minutes, including your tongue.
  • Flossing – Flossing regularly is the second most important oral hygiene habit to implement in your daily routine. Flossing removes the harmful particles and bacteria that live between your teeth and in places that your toothbrush can’t reach.
  • Eat a healthy diet – Limiting your sugar intake is one of the biggest factors in maintaining good oral health. Bacteria and infections thrive off of sugar, so limiting the intake is an easy way to limit the threat of cavities and other issues. Drinking plenty of water is also an easy way to boost your oral health.
  • Genetics – Some factors (like saliva production) are completely out of your control! Genetic factors can make some people more prone to cavities and other dental issues than others.

Regardless of your genetics or external factors, maintaining good daily oral hygiene habits is the best way to prevent dental issues.
