Tooth Decay Study Highlights Importance of Preventative Care, says Medical Center Dental Care

Share Article

Commenting on a recent article, the Los Angeles-based dental practice notes that patients receiving preventative care treatments had far fewer cavities, eliminating the need for additional fillings.

Medical Center Dental Care has received numerous positive reviews by former and current patients, and currently maintains a five-star rating on Yelp, the community ratings website.

The clinic explains that Dr. Becker is excellent at not only providing dental care to younger patients, but in teaching them the appropriate hygiene habits that will help maintain their oral health throughout their lives.

According to an article published April 11th on the Wall Street Journal, a recent study at the University of Sydney shows that, with the help of a preventative and routine care provided by a dentist, tooth decay can be slowed and even reversed before a cavity forms. The study followed patients for seven years and indicated that those who received appropriate preventative care needed far fewer fillings throughout their lives. According to the Los Angeles based dental clinic, Medical Center Dental Care, an important fact raised in the article is that, after having a filling, up to two-thirds of the population will need to return for another within the next two years. The clinic explains that, while filling cavities today is a relatively straightforward and comfortable procedure, it is best to take preventative options in order to prevent further oral health complications.

Medical Center Dental Care explains that most people are well aware of the health benefits of daily brushing and flossing, but not everyone is fully cognizant of the value in seeing a dentist every six months. The clinic notes that many people may be pleased to discover the cost savings value associated with preventative care; if patients can reduce their rate of tooth decay, they can avoid more involved and costly treatments such as deep cleanings and root canals. What’s more, the clinic notes, because periodontal disease is a serious issue that affects a great many Americans each year, patients can benefit from electing to have dental cleanings twice a year to ensure that any periodontal issues are being effectively treated in a timely manner.

Moving on, because habits are often passed down from parents to their children, Medical Center Dental Care explains that it makes every effort to teach parents and their children the best ways to maintain their oral health. The center’s own Dr. Magnolia Becker is a pediatric dentist who has been working with young patients for many years. The clinic explains that Dr. Becker is excellent at not only providing dental care to younger patients, but in teaching them the appropriate hygiene habits that will help maintain their oral health throughout their lives.

Medical Center Dental Care has received numerous positive reviews by former and current patients, and currently maintains a five-star rating on Yelp, the community ratings website.
