To maintain your oral health, it is important to visit the dentist for a general check-up at least once every 6 months, or as directed by your dental professional. Regular check-ups not only promote health, but they can also save you a lot of time and money by allowing early diagnosis and treatment of any problems.
Sometimes a simple visual examination does not show everything in the mouth. A dental X-Ray may be used to see capture images of the interior of your teeth and gums to identify problems such as cavities, tooth decay and impacted teeth.
Tooth Decay / Fluoride Treatment
Dental cavities are caused by the build-up of bacteria in the mouth, forming a sticky film called plaque. Plaque can produce acid which erodes teeth enamel which is the outer protective layer of each tooth. A fluoride treatment supports healthy tooth enamel and fights the bacteria which harm teeth and gums.
Sports Mouth Guards
Painful dental injuries occur commonly while playing sports and are expensive to treat. Mouthguards protect the lips, tongue, face and also help redistribute forces from a blow to the head, decreasing the severity and occurrence of dental injury.
