Modern medical science has enormously evolved in curing the disease and neglects to give out information of how to prevent it.
From Hippocrates, the father of medicine to the distant civilizations of India and China, there are scripts that clearly show and support the value of prevention for our health.
In dentistry the same rule applies, especially considering the fact that many of the oral problems of are not only painful, but also interrelated with our overall health. Apart, then, from the daily practice of oral hygiene, visiting our dentist once or twice a year for a check-up is considered of a significant importance.
Especially for younger patients who still have not fully developed their dentition, the dental check-up aims to strengthen the tooth enamel with fluoride treatment and to protect the first permanent teeth by preventive sealants without any removal of tooth substance.
Does that mean, then, it’s time to shield your health?
