Would you believe that the most basic and very first oral checkup will already have been a form of preventive medical treatment. Because no matter how brief the orthodontics monrovia exam may have been, the medical practitioner, through training and years of experience perhaps, would have already made a series of rough mental notes as to what now needs to be done for his dental patient’s oral structures, currently under diagnosis.
Before orthodontics work is given any thought or consideration, basic dental work still needs to take its course. And before even the first dental exam has been carried out, preventive medicine could have been practiced. In fact, preventive medicine could have, and should have, been carried out long before a dentist or orthodontist was approached for a routine inspection. One of the oldest and maybe even best lessons to apply is that of practicing what you preach.
If you are a mother or father of a young one or two and you never brush your teeth, then you can hardly expect your children to follow your ‘good’ example. There just simply is no good example to follow. If you are a junior school teacher stuck in a classroom full of no more than thirty noisy, restless little ones, and you’ve got a can of soda on the side of your desk, well now, that’s hardly a good example to be giving.
It does not matter whether it is sugar free or not, it is still damaging to the teeth. Orthodontics work addresses the more complex dental procedures, preventive and recuperative, but perhaps for now it would be better to hold dental and orthodontics work in the same high light. Because the matter of not practicing own preventive medicine at home should be taken quite seriously.
