Default What is Preventive Dentistry?

Brushing and flossing as well as the use of dental rinses and medicinal mouthwashes are by far the most common preventive dentistry practices and are examples of primary preventive dentistry. Brushing or cleaning of teeth has been practiced in almost every culture around the world for centuries. In some areas of the world, primitive people may use the frayed end of a green twig as a rudimentary tooth brush. Brushing and flossing removes debris, reduces the build-up of plaque, and reduces the level of harmful bacteria in the mouth.
Another type of primary preventive dentistry is practiced by many municipal water utilities and is called fluoridation.Secondary preventive dentistry may include such procedures as the filling of cavities, root canals, tooth restoration, application of dental sealants or installation of caps and crowns. Removal of broken or impacted teeth, especially the rear molars known as wisdom teeth, is a very common type of secondary preventive dentistry. All of these practices are aimed at preventing further damage, disease or infection by repairing or removing the damaged tooth or tissue. Repairs of dental prostheses such as a broken bridges are considered tertiary preventions.
