Preventative care involves regular 6 monthly visits to the dentist for an exam and clean. It also includes services such as diagnostic x-rays, fissure sealants, fluoride treatments and personalised instruction on how to best care for your mouth at home.
At Oracle Dental we place a strong emphasis on preventative care. Prevention is essential for maintaining healthy teeth, gums and mouth over your lifetime.
A regular check-up and periodic x-rays enable early detection of problems before they lead to major disease. A common misconception is that if there is no pain or symptoms, then there is no problem, but this is not the case. Commonly, a dental problem can be quite advanced before it becomes symptomatic and this means more complex and expensive treatment required.
Most adults require a professional clean every six months. This is to remove calculus and stain build-up and prevent gum disease. It is estimated gum disease affects up to 80% of adults at sometime in their life and it is a leading cause of tooth loss and bad breath. Poor gum health is also linked to increased risk of systemic conditions such as heart disease, respiratory disease, stroke and low birth weights in newborns.
We can help protect teeth from decay using fluoride treatments and fissure sealants.
Our staff will show you the best way to brush and floss your teeth. We can also customize an oral care routine for you at home, recommending techniques and products that will best target and improve your specific needs.
All our staff are highly experienced so you can be assured you are always in the best hands. Contact us, family dentist gold coast, for a preventive care appointment and have a healthy mouth for life!
