Preventive Dentistry Caroline Springs
We want all our patients to practice preventive dentistry
Here at Caroline Springs Dental we encourage our patients to undertake preventive dentistry in help to avoid the need for further extensive and expensive dental treatments. Preventive dentistry ranges from individuals looking after their own teeth at home, to coming in for a regular dental check-up.
Various contemporary studies demonstrate that there is a strong correlation between oral health and well-being and overall health. Keeping a positive dental hygiene schedule will also help you maintain positive overall health.
Some of the preventive dental services we provide at Caroline Springs include:
We also have a number of other measures we provide and recommend to our patients, these include:
Developing a dental hygiene plan
Oral hygiene shouldn’t take a break. Even if you’re visiting a dentist every six months, you need to be looking after your teeth every day between. Your at-home dental plan should at the very least include brushing your teeth every morning and evening, and flossing daily.
Understand and alleviate bad breath
Bad breath or halitosis is essentially caused by the bacteria that live in the mouth. Things such as alcohol, smoking and digestive disorders also encourage the growth of bad bacteria. There are also a number of other measures that can be taken to alleviate bad breath, such as eating certain foods and regular dental care.
Recognising and treating gum disease in its early stages
Periodontal gum disease can cause serious oral issues. A large percentage of people over the age of 50 experience advanced forms of gum disease. If you are experiencing any of the symptoms of gum disease, it’s important to seek immediate medical attention.
To Note: Any dental procedure carries risks which also may depend on your general health. This will be discussed with you prior to any dental intervention.
Before proceeding you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner such as your dentist or your doctor.
