Regular care can help you maintain a beautiful smile for a lifetime

Our team can help to safeguard your dental health with our comprehensive check-up appointments. We believe that preventive oral care is the best way to keep your teeth healthy for a life time. Regular check-ups enable our dentists to identify the development of any oral conditions in their earlier stages. Early treatment can help us alleviate any dental concerns before they develop into potentially harmful oral conditions later down the track.

Visiting our dental practice

We recommend that patients have a check-up every six months. These appointments can help you can save your natural teeth, as well as your time and money. During this appointment, our skilled hygienist will provide a full scale and polish so your smile can look as great as a healthy smile feels.

Avoid dental concerns such as gum disease, tooth loss and decay

Gum disease, tooth loss and decay can all be avoidable with a simple oral hygiene routine. Despite this, brushing and flossing doesn’t keep your smile completely safe. A six monthly check-up, clean and scale appointments with a dentist will remove all hardened plaque and help protect your teeth against decay.

Achieving excellent oral hygiene

There are a number of things you can do to achieve optimal dental health, in combination with visiting our team every six months for a general check-up.

These steps include brushing twice daily, flossing once daily and maintaining a healthy diet. By thoroughly brushing your teeth at least twice a day you can help remove the bacteria which could later harden into plaque. Brushing with fluoride toothpaste can also provide extra protection for your teeth.

By flossing your teeth daily you can help prevent the build-up of tartar and bacteria from collecting in-between your teeth in areas that brushing alone cannot reach. In addition to these two steps, consuming a balanced and healthy diet can also be beneficial to your teeth. By eating the right foods you can strengthen your teeth, as well as keep your gums healthy.
