Prevention

When it comes to your health, it’s better to be safe than sorry

Our team of dentists and odontologists at Estepona Dental Clinic is committed to ensuring that our patients are fully aware of the best way to take care of their dental health. If prevention is not possible, early diagnosis to minimise the consequences of a dental problemwill be very useful, and therefore will also simplify treatment.

Generally the initial phases of an oral disease occur without any pain, so the only way to detect them early are regular consultations. Our staff will contact you to remind you of your follow-up appointments. In this sense and to prevent cavities you should consider the following recommendations:

A

REGULAR DENTAL CLEANINGS

Regular dental cleanings at the clinic along with maintaining a good dental hygiene at home. We will explain the proper brushing technique for each patient’s needs. The frequency of cleanings at the clinic depends on each case.
A

PROPER ALIGNMENT OF TEETH

A proper alignment of teeth is essential to avoid the existence of areas where the accumulation of bacteria is difficult to remove, thus, correcting teeth alignment with Invisalign orthodontic treatment will prevent the emergence of future dental disease.
A

REDUCED SUGAR DIET

The diet of the youngest members of the household, who are accustomed to a high intake of sugar, can cause the appearance of caries at an early age, so our medical staff may recommend a change in their diet and reducing sugars to avoid such problems.
A

MOLARS BETWEEN 6 AND 12 YEARS OF AGE

The molar appearance that occurs between 6 and 12 years of age causes eruptions in the buccal anatomy, causing grooves where bacteria can be deposited in. In this case our dentists recommend dental pit and fissure sealants. In this age range it is also advisable to strengthen tooth enamel with fluoride. In any event our medical staff at the clinic will study each particular case.
