Practicing good oral hygiene is the foundation of preventative dentistry. It protects against excessive plaque build up, bacteria, cavities, infection and bad breath. It also mirrors the health of your overall body. Poor oral hygiene is a major contributor to oral infection, tooth decay and gum disease (periodontal disease). Gum disease is an infectious disease caused by excessive tartar and multiplying bacteria. Gum pockets become inflamed, eventually leading to tooth loss if left untreated.
Our dentists have a strong focus on education and are committed to the health and longevity of your teeth. We encourage you to pay close attention to your oral hygiene and practice excellent maintenance habits to prevent future complications and address any existing damage.
We all know that we should probably go to the dentist more ofter, but its one of things we avoid.
It is important that you combine your daily routine with professional care. Prevention is better than cure, and a regular check-up can identify portential issues before they become problems.
The good news is that a visit to Kembla Street Dental every 6 months is all you need to maintain your amazing, healthy smile! On your regular check-up, something as simple as a professional clean removes plaque and tartar above your gum line that at-home cleaning cannot tackle. Next, a fluoride application will further protect and strengthen teeth.
The most important part of a check-up is your evaluation, which is why dental assessments are more than “just a clean”. Dental assessments provide our team with an invaluable opportunity to carefully inspect your mouth, teeth and gums and identify potential problems as early as possible. We will be looking for signs of tooth decay, loose or broken teeth, damaged tooth fillings and prosthetics or gum disease. Detecting problems in their early stages can prevent them from escalating into more serious complications that are harder to repair.
