Dental caries prevention is the easiest way to achieving the goal of a healthy smile. The main task of dental caries prevention is to combat its worst enemy – dental plaque (the main cause of the development of dental caries) and to increase the resistance of the tissues of teeth to acids. The dentist’s most effective weapon in this battle is fluorine, which is widely used in dental disease prevention.
The scope of prevention includes:
- instruction in oral hygiene;
- professional tooth cleaning – removal of dental plaque, sediment and tartar;
- individual dental fluoridation;
- nutritional guidelines;
- check-ups – every 3 months for children, every 6 months for adults.
