“ An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”– Benjamin Franklin.
Did you know that a majority of the population in India suffers from tooth decay and gum disease? According to the World Health Organization(WHO), tooth decay and gum disease are two of the most widespread diseases causing a major health burden. The good news is that over 95% of all dental problems are preventable.
Prevention is the first step towards a healthy lifestyle. Seeking preventive health services whether medical or dental must become a habit in every family. It is only then that chronic diseases such as tooth decay and Gum Disease can be kept at bay.
“Catch them young “ as they say, helps enforce this essential concept of preventing diseases in children. It is important to understand that tooth decay is the result of bacteria using sugars to create acids that damage teeth. This is not an overnight process. Constant untimely snacking, poor oral hygiene like improper brushing and infrequent brushing can aggravate the damage to teeth.
Gum Disease is another chronic disease that plays a significant role in the deterioration of health. Evidence shows that gum disease like gingivitis and Periodontitis not only lead to tooth loss but can also affect the heart, worsen diabetes, cause kidney related ailments among many other health problems.
Periodic dental check up is therefore essential to diagnose an ongoing problem, treat an existing disease and prevent new ones from appearing. Early attention to signs like tooth sensitivity, bleeding gums, bad breath etc. can help prevent these chronic diseases.
Here is what a preventive dental care entails.

Recent evidence states that complimentary decay preventive strategies such as topical fluoride application using Gels and varnishes, Pit and Fissure Sealants, diet counselling etc must be considered for every growing child.
