Houston TX Periodontist, Dr. J. Robert Friedberg, Prompts Local Patients to Practice Preventive Dentistry This October For Dental Hygiene Month

Houston TX (PRWEB) October 21, 2012

J. Robert Friedberg, DMD, is advocating preventive dentistry in honor of dental hygiene month, encouraging patients to prevent gum disease before it reaches extensive stages that require laser surgery. As a periodontist, Dr. Friedberg wants his patients to understand how far preventive dentistry can go to eliminate costly dental procedures.

One of the first things that Dr. Friedberg works on is encouraging patients to educate their children in the proper way to care for teeth. From the moment the first tooth erupts, parents should take action and keep their children’s teeth brushed and flossed. As soon as children can understand how to do it alone, they can begin to learn the proper methods of caring for their teeth. When a child learns the correct techniques, they will be armed with knowledge that will serve them well throughout their entire life.

In addition, getting a child into the habit of visiting the periodontist or dentist every six months is not only a good habit, but it can help that child potentially save hundreds of dollars on dental care throughout their lifetime. While it is important for proper at-home dental care to take place, it must be accompanied by regular professional checkups. Only dental professionals have the tools and skills necessary to check for such things as oral cancer, gum disease and tooth decay. Checking for such issues on a regular basis is an important part of preventing them.

People who don’t take care of their smiles have a greater probability of succumbing to gum disease and tooth loss. Those who want to keep their own teeth for the rest of their lives must learn proper methods of caring for those teeth. By becoming educated on the prescribed techniques for at-home care and by making regular visits to the dentist, one will have a protection plan in place.
