ENFIELD, Conn., July 29, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Dr. Rashmi Patel, a Connecticut dentist, recently discussed some of the more common issues he encounters at his practice, Enfield Family Dental. According to Dr. Patel, many of the more serious issues he sees in patients who come to his practice could have been easily avoided had the patient simply engaged in preventative care, which includes regular visits to the dentist for what Dr. Patel refers to as "preventative dentistry."
Dr. Patel often assists patients who have lost teeth, have teeth discoloration or are suffering from gum issues. While Dr. Patel offers many procedures for treating these particular problems, he also notes that these problems should have been avoided altogether. The dentist explained that regular home care is absolutely vital, but it is necessary to supplement this care properly with regular visits to the dentist.
According to Dr. Patel, the preventative care that he offers through his practice includes cleaning, dental examinations, polishing, scaling and X-Rays. Each of these procedures benefit patients in different ways, though it should be evident that they all share in the fact that they serve to protect the patient from developing more serious dental issues in the future.
Regular cleanings serve an obvious benefit, as a thorough and professional cleaning can prevent plaque from building up and it also allows the dentist to look for and identify any issues that may be developing. A dental examination similarly assists the dentist in providing an opportunity to rectify any developing issues before they become more serious, and X-Rays may be included in this process if the dentist deems it necessary. Finally, polishing and scaling are deep-cleaning methods that allow the patient to benefit from the professional cleaning tools that are only available through a dental office such as Enfield Family Dental.
Given the importance of preventative dentistry in helping patients avoid future dental issues that are much more serious in nature, Dr. Patel urges patients to visit on a regular basis for a cleaning and examination. For more information, interested parties should contact the doctor's office to schedule an appointment for consultation, in which the dentist will be able to discuss the many treatment options that may be available.
