Preventative Services Used In Dental Care
Individual Dental Plans are an important part of your ongoing Personal Dental Care.
How often should you visit your dentist? Having a clean and healthy mouth is important. It creates fresh breath and a nicer smile. Food particles can remain in your mouth causing plaque to build up on your teeth – this is the main cause of tooth decay and gum disease. Flossing and cleaning your teeth daily removes plaque and food particles and a visit to your dentist every six months for preventative check-ups and cleaning can prevent major tooth problems occurring.
What is Good Dental Hygiene?
Having and maintaining good dental hygiene plays an important role in dental health, helping to prevent dental disease.
At Minlaton Dental & Dentures Clinic we will:
Why is Home Dental Care so Important?
Good home dental techniques help to prevent gum disease and tooth decay. Such problems are then less likely to progress into more serious dental ailments requiring extensive and expensive dental treatment.
Preventive Dental Hygiene for Adults and Children.
In the treatment of both adults and children, the dentist will begin by examining the gums and soft tissues and meticulously removing all traces of calculus, this is known as scaling. Other treatments may include removal of surface staining and polishing of fillings. Children’s teeth often require different forms of specialised treatment, including the application of fluoride. Your dentist can often help to prevent decay in children’s teeth by applying preventative restorations/fissure sealants.
Is there any Discomfort?
If you find treatment uncomfortable, it is important that you discuss this with the dentist. Various techniques are available to help.
