Our Preventive Dentistry Services in Port Macquarie

Dental Check-ups

Visit your Port Macquarie dentist at least twice a year for a dental check-up to see if there are any problems in your mouth.

If you’re at great risk for dental problems, you’ll benefit from more frequent dental visits.

Professional Scale and Clean

Professional scale and clean, also called deep cleaning, is the thorough removal of all tartar build-up in the mouth.

Deep cleaning removes tartar not only from the teeth but also from under the gumline.

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride promotes healthy tooth enamel and fights harmful bacteria that may damage the teeth and gums.

Cavities occur when bacteria in the mouth build up on teeth and gums and form plaque. Plaque produces an acid that erodes teeth and gum tissues. Fluoride is beneficial if you’re at great risk of developing cavities.

If the plaque breaks down the enamel, bacteria can infect and harm the nerves and blood at the core of the tooth.

Mouthguards

Mouthguards are dental appliances that are worn to protect the mouth when playing contact sports.

They protect your teeth and cushion sharp blows to the face, preventing breakage and other damage to your teeth and soft tissues.

Occlusal Splints

Occlusal splints or night guards have the same functions as those of mouthguards, but they are worn while you are asleep.

They protect your teeth from excessive gnashing and grinding, which occurs as a result of bruxism.

Preventing Dental Problems at Home

Proper brushing

Brush your teeth at least twice a day. Brush for at least 2 minutes every time using a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. Don’t forget to include your tongue, gums, and other soft tissues in the mouth.

Daily flossing

Brushing your teeth is not enough. Floss your teeth to dislodge food particles stuck in between teeth — floss at least once a day, preferably before bedtime.

Changing your toothbrush regularly

Change your toothbrush every 3 to 4 months or once the bristles are frayed. We also recommend changing your toothbrush after getting a cold.

Teeth-friendly diet

What you eat greatly affect your oral health. Search the web for mouth-friendly foods and be sure to include them the next time you go to the grocery store.

Smoking cessation

Smoking has been proven to have negative effects on the body, including to your teeth. If you smoke, try to stop.

Regular dental check-ups with your Port Macquarie dentist

Schedule regular dental check-ups with your Port Macquarie dentist. We recommend two dental check-ups a year, or once every six months. During check-ups, your dentist will perform a thorough check on all aspects of your oral health.
