Many forget that ongoing care and maintenance is as important as the smile makeover or implant treatment itself. It is critical that you maintain regular dental visits and oral hygiene at home. This general dental care is very important in ensuring that your results last a very long time -- a lifetime.
During your routine dental examination with us, we will check for tooth decay, leaking fillings, failing dental treatment and abnormalities within the mouth such as mouth cancer.
Your dentist will examine your gums, mouth, tongue and throat. We pay special attention to plaque and tartar buildup and the role of good oral hygiene between visits. If not removed, soft plaque can harden on the teeth and irritate the gum tissue leading to gum disease.
Examinations are carried out in a relaxed manner and you will be informed of your dental health and gum health status at the end of the appointment.
An honest opinion will be given on how to improve your dental health and how to achieve a healthy and attractive smile. You may require follow-up treatments to keep teeth and gums in good health.
Regular dental health exams and tests can help keep your teeth and gums healthy for a lifetime. Overall, your dental health foresees many oral diseases that can affect not just your mouth but also your whole body.
Visiting your dentist twice a year is a preventive health routine -- as oral health has been linked with risk of heart disease, stroke, and other serious chronic diseases. This is because bacteria from gum disease can travel through the bloodstream to other areas of the body, causing damaging inflammation.
Being empowered and educated about your dental health is necessary to prevent future complications. When patients get regular check-ups, they stay on top of their oral health. With general dental care, symptoms of diseases are detected early when they are easier to treat.
General dental care is necessary to protect your children’s teeth as the dentist can address problems such as dental hygiene, the jaw, and diet. The dentist can also advise on correcting problems such as crowded, missing, and crooked teeth. The earlier a dentist discovers these problems, the less difficult and expensive the treatment becomes.
The dentist may also recommend a mouthguard for those children who play sport where a tooth can be damaged or knocked out.
We will help you at every step, but it’s your responsibility to be proactive and prevent any complications with good oral hygiene at home and regular general dental care. This helps keep you and your entire family healthy
