Preventive Dentistry in Louisville, CO

As the old saying goes, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”, and that’s certainly true with your smile and dental health. Your smile can last you a lifetime if you floss and brush regularly, as well as follow necessary preventive care to maintain the health of your smile. Preventive dental care not only protects your teeth, its also essential to your overall health, which is the main focus of quality preventive dentistry. There are many factors that can contribute to the decline of oral health, which is why it’s important for you to practice good oral hygiene. Regular check-ups are also very important to prevent the onset of tooth decay, infection and disease.  Even if your teeth or gums are on the verge of developing damage or disease, this can be stopped (and even reversed in some cases) as long as you get the proper diagnosis and treatment right away. As some of the most respected Louisville, CO preventive dentists in the region, SōL Dental has earned the trust of patients.

Prenatal Prevention Dentistry

Are you pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant?

Planning Pregnancy?

Proper dental cleanings and exams are very important while planning a pregnancy. Unhealthy gums and infections may affect getting pregnant or add risks to your pregnancy. In a study of nearly 2,000 women, those with gum disease took an average of two months longer getting pregnant than those with healthy gums. This infection is hard to detect without a dental exam because it’s nearly painless until the later stages. If found, gum disease can very often be quickly and easily treated, leaving the patient with a healthier body and increase the success of her pregnancy.

Currently Pregnant?

It’s a very sad thing, but according to a study author Roger Hart, M.D. conducted, “An overgrowth of oral bacteria could set off an inflammatory response in tissues throughout the body, increasing the risk for miscarriage and premature birth.”  Another aspect for some women is pregnancy gingivitis (higher level of gum inflammation).  This is a normal change that may occur due to hormonal alterations during pregnancy. The bottom line is that pregnancy does affect the health of your baby. The key to having a healthy mouth in any stage of life is making sure to maintain good daily brushing and flossing habits as well as periodic checkups.  This is especially true during pregnancy.
