The Best Way To Protect Is To Prevent – 3 Benefits Of Preventive Dentistry!

At Branches Dental, Dr. Nilesh Thakkar is a believer in the power of preventive dentistry in Anna. At our office, we pride ourselves on offering excellent preventive services to ensure that all of our patients have healthy smiles. Here’s a few benefits of choosing Branches Dental for preventive dentistry:

1. Avoid Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies can be inconvenient and costly. If you have a dental emergency, such as an extreme toothache or a knocked-out tooth, it can greatly affect your day-to-day life, and you’ll need immediate emergency treatment to get out of pain and discomfort.

Regular preventive dentistry can help you avoid dental emergencies, such as toothaches, loose teeth cause by gum disease, and even issues with your existing dental work. By keeping up with regular appointments at Branches Dental, we’ll help you avoid emergencies altogether, and ensure that your oral health is protected.

2. Catch Potential Issues (Before They Become More Severe)

Often, it’s hard to identify potential issues like tooth decay or periodontal disease before they have already become quite severe.

Cavities, for example, won’t usually start causing you any pain until they have bored through the tooth enamel, and reached the interior dentin and pulp of your tooth. By then, it’s too late to take preventive measures and you’ll need restorative care such as filling or a crown.

However, if you visit us for preventive care every six months, Dr. Thakkar can identify potential cavities before they become serious and require a filling. Then, you can take steps like brushing more frequently and using fluoride treatments to resolve the cavity, without spending time or money on filling or a crown.

3. Save Time And Money With The Right Treatments (At The Right Time)

Catching an oral health issue early can actually save you quite a bit of money. Preventive treatments are typically much more affordable than restorative care, not to mention much more efficient. As dental issues progress, their solutions become more costly and more time-consuming. Preventing a cavity with regular checkups and fluoride treatments is much better than treating a cavity with a filling, and a filling is much less expensive than an extraction and a dental prosthetic.
