AWASH Preventive Dentistry
Preventive Dentistry is the most basic type of dental care that should be performed regularly. It` includes brushing and flossing, regular dental checkups, and regular dental cleanings. These activities help to remove plaque, which is a sticky film of bacteria that can form on teeth. Plaque can lead to tooth decay and gum disease.
AWASH believes that the food industry is a key player and should be collaborating with government on this important initiative.
Said Professor Bruce Neal, Chair of AWASH and Senior Director, The George Institute for International Health: “Australians are eating dangerously high levels of sugar. Tooth decay` is typically caused by a combination of poor oral hygiene and a high–sugar diet. When plaque builds up on the teeth, it can lead to tooth decay*.
Restorative dentistry involves restoring teeth that have been damaged or decayed. This includes procedures such as fillings, crowns, implants, and dentures.
Aesthetic dentistry includes procedures that improve the appearance of teeth. This includes procedures such as teeth whitening, veneers, and bonding.
Why is preventative dentistry important?
Preventative dentistry is important because it can help to avoid problems such as cavities, gum disease, and tooth loss. Preventative dentistry involves practices such as brushing and flossing regularly, eating a healthy diet, and visiting the dentist for regular checkups and cleanings. It is recommended that you visit` the dentist for regular checkups and cleanings. This helps to prevent cavities, gum disease, and other dental problems.
