Preventive dentistry is the practice of caring for one’s teeth to keep them healthy for live. Including, avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and more.
There are many forms of preventive dentistry, such as daily brushing and dental cleanings. These practices are designed to ensure that teeth are clean, strong, and white.
The most important part of preventive dentistry is to brush teeth daily with fluoride toothpaste approved by the American Dental Association (ADA). Daily flossing is also recommended. Flossing helps to clean out the tight spaces between the teeth.
Dental Cleanings and Exams allow dentists to identify problems and take care of them right away, before they become a major problem, and that is the Main Purpose of the Preventive Dentistry.
People should see their dentists at least once a year for an exam to check for any problems in the teeth or gums.
Eating a balance diet also helps to protect the teeth by providing them with the nutrients they need.

Periodontal Deseise

Periodontal disease

Periodontal pathology, or periodontal diseases, are a group of diseases which affect one or more of the periodontal tissues (What attaches the tooth to the bone). While many different diseases affect these tooth-supporting structures, by far the most common of these are plaque-induced inflammatory conditions, which are considered as gingivitis and periodontitis. Often the terms periodontal disease or gum disease are used as a synonym of periodontitis, specifically chronic periodontitis. All this can be prevented and or treated, in some cases prevention is not enough, for example Diabetes, Autoimmune disease, and Diet can Extremely increase the develop and spread of this Disease, for patients like that we need to have a more close treatment such as,  root planing and application of a antibiotics like Arestin around the affected area usually  are the best and more accurate treatment

comparisonImplants

A dental implant (also known as an endosseous implant or fixture) is a surgical component that interfaces with the bone of the jaw or skull to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture, facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor. As the implants success mainly rely on the amount of bone each patient have, the most common questions are assured in the Dentist chair. For patients with very little or narrow bones a bone graft is usually a great option. Most implants connect with other components in order to function. A common component is an abutment which can provide the connection to a dental prosthesis.

Modern dental implants can fuse with bone through a biologic process called osseointegration. Materials such as titanium, and some ceramics form this bone integration instead of causing a foreign body reaction as found with most other materials. Prior to the discovery ofosseointegration, various non-titanium implants were placed in the jawbones (or the periosteum surrounding them) but had high complication rates due to foreign body reactions. In fact, implantable fixtures to replace teeth are not a new concept, with evidence of use at least 4000 years ago with ancient Chinese bamboo dental implants.

Root Canal

Root Canal

Endodontic therapy or root canal therapy is a sequence of treatment for the pulp of a tooth which results in the elimination of infection and the protection of the decontaminated tooth from future microbial invasion. Root canals and their associated pulp chamber are the physical hollows within a tooth that are naturally inhabited by nerve tissue, blood vessels and other cellular entities which together constitute the dental pulp. Endodontic therapy involves the removal of these structures, the subsequent shaping, cleaning, and decontamination of the hollows with small files and irrigating solutions, and the obturation (filling) of the decontaminated canals with an inert filling such as gutta-percha and typically a eugenol-based cement. Epoxy resin, which may or may not contain Bisphenol A is employed to bind gutta-percha in some root canal procedures.
