Preventative Dental

Preventative Dental at Oran Park & Harrington Park Dental Care

The best way to achieve a healthy, beautiful smile is preventing issues before they arise

Our teeth need regular care and attention by our dentist. Although we may brush our teeth everyday this is still not enough. Plaque builds up on our teeth. This accumulates from the foods and beverages we consume. Plaque contains bacteria. Bacteria invade the food debris and forms between our teeth and below the gum line which causes decay and gum disease. The long term plaque can become hardened (rock like) and can only be removed by the dentist.

This needs to be cleaned and treated regularly for prevention. Our preventative treatments include:

  • Scale + polishing
  • Fluoride treatments
  • Radiographs + x-rays
  • Fissure Sealants
 

Some tips for maintaining healthy teeth

Eat Well

Enjoy a wide variety of nutritious foods and healthy snacks. Limit your intake of sweet foods, especially between meals.

Play Well

Wear a professionally fitted mouth guard when training or playing contact sports. If a tooth is damaged or knocked out, contact us immediately for an emergency appointment.

Drink Well

Drink plenty of tap water. Avoid sweet or fizzy drinks. If consumed, have them with meals rather than between meals.

Stay Well

Don’t wait for a problem. Have regular oral health check-ups. Ask your oral health professional how often you should have check ups. If you smoke, quit for good.

Clean Well

Clean your teeth twice a day. Brush your teeth gently and thoroughly with well fluoridated toothpaste with a soft toothbrush. Floss at least once a day. Ask our dentist for a lesson in correct flossing procedure. When possible, chew sugarless gum after meals.

During the cleaning, the dentist or hygienist will remove plaque and tartar from the teeth and gums, and polish the teeth. The exam will include a visual examination of the mouth, teeth, and gums, as well as a screening for oral cancer. X-rays may be taken to help detect problems that are not visible during a visual exam.
