Modern dentistry has made incredible strides in the last few years. It has two major components; prevention and restoration. There are three ways people lose teeth; gum disease, decay and unnatural forces. If a person starts the proper prevention at a very young age and their teeth fit properly, chances are they will never need any dentistry at all.
Once a tooth starts decaying, once gum disease starts destroying the bone or a bad fit of the teeth start destroying teeth, something needs to be done. It only makes sense, right? For those who want to maintain their teeth for life, they need to find a dentist they trust and together work out a life long personalized dental plan. The goal of the plan is to keep their teeth for their entire life.
Most people do not want to even think about their teeth because that would mean a trip to the dentist, right? The smart thing to do is go to the mirror, have a look at your teeth and decide how important they are to you. Set your goal as to what you want for your teeth and either discuss with the trusted dentist you already have or find one that you can trust.
Just remember that they are your teeth and you are the one that has to make what ever decision that is in your best interest.
