General dentistry is the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the teeth, gums and mouth.
The Australian Dental Association, strongly recommends that you have regular six monthly checkups with a qualified dentist. Regular checkups can help to prevent tooth decay and gum disease and can also help to detect any problems that might arise early. This can result in better treatment outcomes. A few things we will look at during a check up are:
- Plaque, Tartar and Staining
- Checking of the gums, cheeks and tongue
- Tooth Decay
- Teeth Cleaning
- Checking of the Jaw Alignment
Any potential problems can often be diagnosed and treated in the same day.
Here at DNA Dental we are passionate about maintaining a healthy mouth. Our staff can remove the plaque, tartar and stains from your teeth which will help to prevent cavities, gingivitis and periodontal disease. Tooth cleaning is a great way to maintain a beautiful smile and give you fresh breath. We will also explain how to maintain the best oral hygiene at home. There really is nothing like a clean mouth feel.
Restorations and Fillings:
In the case of tooth decay, the most common treatment is the use of restorations or fillings. Restorations and fillings can range from fixing small gaps to completely rebuilding teeth. We use high grade materials and techniques to ensure that teeth match the appearance of the other teeth and blend in to create the most natural looking result. Our aim is to restore teeth structure and appearance, which allows you to enjoy normal use of the tooth for eating and speaking. Restorations and fillings are usually relatively quick treatments, that can be completed in one visit and often last a long time if good oral hygiene is practiced.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
