When you hear the same thing over and over about preventive care for your smile, it can be easy to commit certain details to memory, while you end up overlooking some very important details. To ensure you’re really getting a solid, full perspective on how you can make prevention work in your favor, we encourage you to take a look at a few shockers. As intended, they just might surprise you!
#1: You Can Recommit At Any Time
There’s no point at which you’ve just gone too long without practicing preventive care. Yes, you may end up with damage like tooth decay, which will require you to also receive restorative care. However, prevention is always something you can start up again (it includes brushing, flossing, cleanings, and checkups for the most part), as it can prevent any additional problems from developing.
#2: It Can Protect Your Teeth Forever
If you practice preventive care, you can keep your smile healthy forever and ever. Don’t believe us? Do you assume that teeth and gums naturally become diseased over time simply as a matter of aging? It’s not true. When you care for your smile, it stays healthy. It’s really that easy.
#3: It’s So Easy!
Did we mention that preventive care is easy? This is particularly true when compared with the alternative, which is allowing damage to occur and then dealing with the consequences and necessary treatments. Brush twice a day. Floss once a day. Come in for your visits (twice a year). See? Simple.
Preventive Care Is Always Worthwhile
Remember that even if it’s been a long time since you were serious about your prevention, it’s never too late to take good care of your smile. Learn more by scheduling a visit in Prairie Village, KS by calling Robert M Browne, DDS at (913) 901-8585.
