When good care is taken of your gums and teeth from an early stage of life, it means that your teeth can last for longer. But care is an on-going necessity. Strong, clean teeth and healthy gums can minimize the risks of disease by reducing both caries (dental decay) and gum disease (Gingivitis and Periodontal Disease), which can both lead to tooth loss.
By cleaning twice daily with a soft manual toothbrush or electric toothbrush, supported by good cleaning of in-between the teeth by dental floss or other aids, dental disease can be prevented. This should also be supported by regular visits to your dentist, Hygienist or Oral Hygiene Therapist.
At Dental Matters the Dentist and Hygienist/Oral Health Therapist can provide tailored care for each individual patient. These treatments include assisting with comprehensive one-on-one instruction for the individual for home care instructions and if there are any risk factors that could compromise treatment.
We can formulate ways to maintain good oral health with thorough, gentle cleaning of the teeth (removal of calculus, plaque and stains) after completing a comprehensive assessment of all the oral tissues. An assessment as to whether preventive agents should be applied to further assist with prevention of caries and sensitivity would also be performed.
We are happy to treat people of all ages to achieve overall good health.
