Freedictionary.com defines preventative dentistry as “dentistry concerned with maintenance of a normal masticating mechanism by fortifying
the structures of the oral cavity against damage and disease”. That’s certainly a mouthful! In simple terms, preventative dentistry is all about the preservation of healthy teeth and gums and the prevention of dental caries and oral disease through regular treatment. Here you'll find a great range of articles on a variety of preventative subjects from diagnostic tools to hygiene maintenance instruments, pit and fissure sealants to prophy pastes and varnishes, next-gen minimally invasive infiltration treatments to at-home care.
