Preventive Care Q&A

What is preventive care?

Preventive care helps you avoid dental issues before they arise and promotes good oral health. At Woodlands Elite Dental Partners, the professional dental team offers preventive care to keep your mouth free from any kind of oral health issues, such as cavities, dental decay, or gum disease.

Preventive care starts with attending routine visits at Woodlands Elite Dental Partners every six months. Timely visits can help prevent oral health complications in the long run.

What are ways to practice preventive care?

Much of preventive care involves your participation. Examples of taking a proactive role in your oral health include:

Brushing and flossing

The team at Woodlands Elite Dental Partners follows the American Dental Association guidelines for good oral health, which includes brushing at least two times a day for two minutes while holding your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle. You should also floss daily.

Eating a healthy diet

The foods and drinks you consume can impact the health of your teeth and gums. Avoid sugary and starchy foods to help prevent tooth decay. Instead, eat a nutrient-rich diet that includes fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.

Going to routine dental appointments

Your friendly dental staff at Woodlands Elite Dental Partners offers professional cleanings to keep your oral health strong. They perform X-rays to detect any concerning issues. When you commit to attending your routine appointments, you have a greater chance of maintaining good oral health.

At Woodlands Elite Dental Partners, your visits include a time for questions and answers to ensure you get professional advice and guidance on improving and keeping your oral health in good shape.

What are the benefits of preventive care?

  • Tooth decay
  • Gingivitis
  • Periodontitis
  • Enamel loss
  • Bad breath

Your dental care also plays a role in your overall health. Poor oral hygiene has been linked to chronic health problems, such as osteoporosis, heart disease, and certain types of cancer. That’s why preventive care for your oral health is so important.
