Preventive dentistry features a range of dental care to promote strong teeth, gums and a healthy smile.

What is preventive dentistry?

At Precinct Dental, we are convinced that prevention is always better than cure. Preventive dentistry is a range of dental care treatments including regular dental check-ups, assessments as well as professional hygiene cleaning.

In addition to a good home oral health routine, preventive dentistry can potentially reduce the risk of disease, minimise dental health issues and enhance your smile.

Routine dental check-ups

Coming to see your dentist every 6 months or so can reduce the risk of dental health problems such as tooth decay, cavities and gum disease. From early childhood, regular dental check-ups promote good oral health and can also reduce potential anxiety around dental treatment.

During a dental check-up, your dentist will carefully examine your mouth and teeth. Detecting early signs of tooth decay or gum disease can reduce the need for more in-depth dental treatment later on.

Professional hygiene cleaning

At Precinct Dental, the majority of our patients take advantage of professional hygiene cleaning at the same time as their dental treatment.

Hygiene cleaning is a convenient and effective way to thoroughly clean each tooth, removing stubborn plaque and tartar build-up. Superficial tooth stains and the accumulation of bacteria along the gum line can also be reduced.

Home oral and dental health care

In addition to regular dental checks and hygiene cleaning, your dentist will also be happy to advise you on the most effective home oral health care routine.

We recommend brushing your teeth for at least two minutes in the morning and in the evening. Use a fluoride toothpaste and change your toothbrush every three months or before if it becomes worn.

A balanced diet and limiting alcohol and tobacco consumption also contribute towards optimal oral health.

Your dentist may recommend wearing a mouth guard to protect your teeth if you participate in certain contact sports.
