In general, you have to realize that the knowledge and the techniques of the paediatric dentist today have led to the creation of complete preventive programs that are able to prevent tooth decay and gum problems in children. However, this requires your own information, your determination and your consistency in the application of these programs so your child will enjoy its whole life without any dental problems.
We will conclude this pamphlet by presenting three true facts for prevention in our life.
The one is that the main dental problems such as tooth decay, gum diseases and soft tissue diseases can be prevented almost 100%, especially if prevention begins from a very young age.
The second is that although dentists do perform high quality dental restorations, none of these restorations last forever . What lasts forever is prevention, because it gives us healthy teeth and good oral health.
Restorations cost too much even though they don’t last, while prevention costs very little and lasts for ever. Prevention means that you visit your dentist at least once a year to prevent problems and not when you hurt. Because then it may be too late.
Dear parents, prevention means health, it means cleverness, it means investment. Clever people invest in prevention and good health. Be one of them!
