Prevent the need for dental treatment down the track
We are experts at keeping your teeth healthy
At Oasis Dental Studio in Broadbeach we are committed to helping our patients keep a healthy set of teeth that can last a lifetime. Brushing your teeth twice daily and flossing once daily will help keep your teeth healthy. Despite this, these actions alone will not completely safeguard the health of your teeth. In order to keep your smile healthy for a lifetime you need to regularly see a dentist for a six monthly check-up appointment.
With preventive dentistry we can help you avoid:
While many people think that tooth decay is inevitable, it can actually be avoided entirely with a stringent oral hygiene routine. Tooth decay is caused by bacteria forming into plaque that eats away at the tooth’s enamel.
Food particles and bacteria that is not correctly removed with brushing and flossing can cause a build-up of acid that erodes the enamel of your teeth. Over time, this acid eats away at the surface of the tooth, creating holes or ‘cavities’.
While brushing twice daily and flossing once daily can help to prevent the development of tooth decay, you will need the help of a dentist to remove stubborn plaque. Once plaque hardens it turns into tartar which can only be removed by a dentist during a scale and polish.
Tooth loss can be caused from extensive tooth decay and gum disease. Once a tooth is lost it will never grow back. Our dental professionals offer dental implants that can permanently replace missing teeth; however this is a last resort as we strive to help patients avoid tooth loss where possible.
A trained dental professional can help to keep your teeth and gums healthy enough to support teeth, as well as identify any signs that may indicate that tooth loss may be a possibility.
Gum disease can trigger a host of other concerns for your oral health, including tooth loss and even the diminishing of the jawbone. Excessive bleeding and sensitivity in the gums is a potential sign of gum disease.
Our dentists can remove tartar that can irritate the gums, as well as identify any development of gum disease. If not identified in the initial stages, gum disease can progress to periodontitis which is more serious and can be harder to treat.
Tooth decay, gum disease and concerns in the soft tissues in your mouth can all cause significant discomfort. Our dental professionals are able to help prevent the occurrence of dental pain by helping to keep your teeth healthy for life.
