Providing Quality General Dentistry Services
Regular check-ups with a good family dentist is the best way to maintain your dental health. Having consistent check-ups means you’ll be avoiding invasive and costly procedures to rectify any problems that occur when people neglect their dental hygiene.
When you see one of the experienced dentists at our North Shore practice, they will look for signs of new decay, gum disease and oral cancer. They also do cleaning and apply fluoride so your teeth and gums stay healthy and bacteria-free.
If our family dentist detects any potential problems, they will advise you on what treatment options are available, allowing you to make an informed decision on what you’d prefer to do.
It's all about trying to ensure that you keep your teeth for life and in the best possible condition.
How Regular is Regular?
We advise most of our patients to see their dentist twice a year. For those deemed to be low-risk patients, an annual check-up is all that is usually required.
If you have young children, we advise that they first come to see one of our dentists by the age of three. Not only do we check on how their teeth are developing, the process assists children to feel at ease in a dentist surgery. We aim to make sure the experience for your child is a positive and stress-free one. Learn more about our children's dentistry services.
Importantly, our dentists provide you with information on the best oral hygiene practices suitable for you and your family, to help you all keep your teeth and gums healthy. They’ll happily give you tips and demonstrate just how to care for your teeth so you can prevent future problems.
Taking proper care of your teeth at home is the first step in maintaining a healthy smile. Parents and children can both participate in these recommended daily activities, creating good dental hygiene habits your family dentist will be proud of:
- Brush teeth and gums twice daily with a soft bristle or electric toothbrush
- Floss between teeth at least once a day
- Adults can use a mouthwash to prevent plaque build-up and bad breath
- Use a Pikster brush if you have gum disease
