A preventative approach to dental decay, gum disease, trauma and other conditions has been established as an important treatment modality in modern dentistry. Use of techniques such as odontoplasty, fissure sealing and topical fluoride application are commonly used for reducing the risk of decay in high-risk areas (e.g. stained grooves and fissures).
Risk reduction can also be applied to other areas of dentistry, including the use of mouthguards to prevent traumatic fracture of teeth and bone during physical activity.
At your regular check-up we will:
- Examine your teeth, gums, and mouth for general health and any symptoms of disease. X-rays may be recommended to allow us to check for dental problems that are not visible.
- Carry out a thorough cleaning of your teeth and gums to remove any plaque or tartar that cannot be removed by brushing and flossing alone.
At Tuart Hill Dental we encourage patients to visit us for regular 6 monthly check-ups as part of our preventive care program.
Regular check-ups will make sure that any dental problems are uncovered early. This means treatment is often very simple and low in cost.
We also encourage patients to look after their teeth every day – through regular tooth brushing, flossing, and a good diet that is low in sugar and starch.
