Preventive Dental CareDid you know that over 100 million Americans don’t go to the dentist because they can’t afford it? And this staggering statistic doesn’t even include the rest of the world. Most countries don’t even have a fraction of the dental care we have, meaning that most of the population is dealing with tooth decay, gum disease, and severe tooth loss. Our dental practice in Beaumont thinks it’s important to not only give back but also provide proper dental care to those who are less fortunate. That’s why our very own Beaumont dentist, Dr. Helene Suh, traveled to Brazil on a mission trip to provide dental work to children whose families couldn’t afford it.
While in Brazil, Dr. Suh was fortunate enough to work with so many wonderful children and give them something to truly smile about. By also educating these children, Dr. Suh also hopes that they will not only understand the importance of a healthy smile but also do their part at home to brush and floss their teeth as much as possible.

Preventative Dental Care:

So, what can we take away from this wonderful mission trip? The importance of preventive dental care! This is something that may people overlook, no matter what age. If you are also dealing with financial constraints but you want to keep your smile healthy, here are the best preventative dental practices you can adopt:
  • Brush and floss daily. We can show you some helpful techniques for really getting your teeth clean while also making sure you aren’t too rough on your gums.
  • Change your toothbrush every three months, or when you notice frayed bristles. You wouldn’t believe how many people keep using the same toothbrush for longer than they should.
  • Get dental cleanings and checkups every six months. It’s a well-known fact that preventive dental care can help you avoid costly and lengthy treatments in the long run. Preventive care means early diagnosis and treatment should a dental condition arise.
