The Importance of Preventive Dentistry

Your visits to the dentist don't have to painful. Pediatric dentistry in Virginia Beach, VA, with your dentist Dr. Elleni Kapoor of General Dentistry 4 Kids also serving Norfolk, VA, Chesapeake, VA, Hampton, VA, and Pungo, VA, can help save you from more expensive and painful dental procedures.

It Saves You Money 

Expensive dental procedures to fix your damaged teeth can be avoided if your dentist helps you prevent tooth damage.

Preventive dentistry aims to help you prevent the development of damaging dental conditions such as tooth decay, gum disease, and dental cavities.

Help Your Kids Learn How to Care for Their Teeth 

Your child's first birthday is an excellent time to begin the ritual of routine dental checkups.

Thanks to pediatric dentistry in Virginia Beach, VA, they can learn proper dental care from their dentist at General Dentistry 4 Kids also serving Norfolk, VA, Chesapeake, VA, Hampton, VA, and Pungo, VA.

The experience helps them develop dental habits that ensure their optimal oral health for years to come.

Thorough Teeth Cleaning 

If you think that brushing and flossing alone are enough to keep your teeth clean and healthy, you're wrong.

During your routine dental visit, your pediatric dentist, Dr. Kapoor, will clean your child's teeth to remove tartar and plaque buildup.

This procedure helps prevent gum disease and other oral health conditions such as bad breath.

Prevent Cavities 

Cavities are pretty common among kids and adults alike. Food debris and bacteria stick to the grooves of their teeth, causing enamel damage.

Your dentist could cover your child's teeth with sealant. This sealant keeps the food debris and plaque from getting into the grooves of your child's teeth.

Your child now has a lower chance of getting cavities. Therefore, you're saving them from getting more painful dental procedures like a root extraction in the future.

Early Detection of Oral Conditions 

Even if you don't have any signs, your dentist can catch dental conditions like gum disease. Early detection means you get treatment before complications arise.

Mouth cancer is another oral condition that you need your dentist to detect early. During your dental exam, your dentist keeps an eye out for such abnormalities.

Pediatric dentistry in Virginia Beach, VA, with your dentist, Dr. Kapoor, of General Dentistry 4 Kids also serving Norfolk, VA, Chesapeake, VA, Hampton, VA, and Pungo, VA, can help ensure your child's teeth and oral health for the future. Call (757) 965-3333 to schedule your consultation today.
