At Balmain Dentist we believe that preventative dentistry is the key to maintaining healthy teeth, bone and gums and achieving a great healthy smile. Preventative dentistry is required to maintain good oral health and identify and address any issues. We start by performing a thorough examination of the mouth to determine if teeth, bones and gums are in good health and if there are any problems or disease present. We give dietary advice, which is essential in good oral health. We then provide a professional scale and clean of the teeth, which includes the removal of all plaque and calculus build up, a tooth polish and fluoride treatment plus digital x – rays of the teeth and instruction about good oral hygiene. Regular visits to the dentist for a clean and formulating a good home routine will prevent tartar and stain build up and keep your gums and teeth remaining healthy.
