Preventive dentistry is the cornerstone of a beautiful, healthy smile.
As the saying goes, prevention is always better than a cure, and we couldn’t agree more!
Your mouth is not just for talking and eating. Your mouth reveals a lot about yourself; be it the way you smile, to the way your breath smells and more. So it is imperative to keep the state of your mouth in its optimum condition. The best way to achieve this is through regular dental check-ups and cleans.
At The Point Dental, we recommend twice-yearly preventive check-ups and cleaning
A dental check-up at The Point Dental is more than just a peek at your teeth. It involves a detailed assessment of your mouth to check for any cavities, cracks or signs of gum disease. We will also screen your mouth for oral cancer. We will take photos to show you areas of concern and dental x-rays when it’s necessary for areas that we cannot visualise directly in the mouth. This will generally be followed by a thorough cleaning and polishing of your teeth, and the preventive application of fluoride.
We aim to detect and advise you of any potential problems before they escalate. All treatments options will be discussed and a detailed treatment plan will be given to you prior to commencing any proposed dental work. We want to ensure that you receive the best dental care in a positive and stress-free environment.
Good home dental care is essential in achieving effective prevention
We encourage all our patients to take an active role in preventing dental disease. This involves brushing your teeth and gums twice daily and flossing your teeth at least once a day.
At The Point Dental, we believe that combining a good home dental care regime with twice yearly preventive dental check-ups and cleaning is the most effective way to maintain your teeth and smile for the rest of your life.
