Preventive Dentistry is the area of dentistry that focuses on those procedures and life practices that help people to prevent the beginning or progression of oral disease. It includes at-home dental care performed by patients, as well as dental care and education by professional dental staff in the office or clinic.
Preventive dentistry should always be prescribed and not harm patients when done correctly. At times, dentists do need to take precautions when someone has a medical condition that would be affected by some of the procedures. Dentists need to be aware of certain medical conditions, such as mitral valve prolapse, which need to be treated with prophylactic antibiotics. Allergies to any of the medications or materials used in preventive dentistry are rare.
Preventive Dentistry starts when your baby gets his or her first tooth. This treatment is specially meant for children and hence it is very cheap. You will need to visit your dentist when the first tooth comes in and the dentist will guide you about how you can take good care of your baby's teeth. This way it is possible to have a generation, which will be free from any kind of cavities in their teeth.
