Protective & Preventive Dentistry
Protective and preventive dentistry is the sum of treatments that aim to prevent teeth from decaying or being extracted in children from the moment teeth first appear in their mouth. Protective and preventive methods include fluoride application, fissure sealants and application of placeholders in case of early tooth loss. Since first tooth appears in mouth, tooth brushing is really essential. Through protective and preventive dentistry, it is possible to eliminate the risk of tooth decay and tooth extraction by creating tooth brushing habit around the age 3.
