When it comes to the health of your teeth, prevention is always better than cure. While tooth decay is common in modern society, many of the problems that we see every day as dentists are preventable with appropriate education and care. Whether it’s maintaining good oral hygiene at home or attending regular dental check-ups to ensure good hygiene practices, there’s so much you can do to look after your teeth so that problems don’t develop.
Dental hygiene habits
Good dental hygiene starts at home, with regular brushing, flossing, and mouth care being integral to long-term dental health. While developing healthy oral hygiene habits might seem simple enough, a little advice and guidance from the experts can go a long way. We can show you how to clean your teeth properly, give you advice on gum care, and provide you with information on the foods and drinks that are dangerous for your teeth. Along with an ongoing cleaning routine at home, it’s also important to come in for your regular dental checkups. At Tarneit Dental Care, we provide preventative dental care for all ages and know how to make even those who feel anxious about visiting the dentist feel comfortable.
Oral maintenance services
There’s only so much you can do without access to professional expertise and equipment, with a dentist being able to check your gums, plaque levels, teeth staining, and other indicators of poor oral health. Dental problems can develop quickly, which is why we recommend regular appointments to identify concerns as early as possible. A maintenance appointment also includes a professional teeth cleaning service, including the removal of tartar with professional dental equipment.
