Preventive Dentistry Brisbane
As the foundation of quality and lasting oral health, preventive dentistry aims at preventing damage and maintaining your smile.
Here at Lutwyche Dental in Brisbane, we want to ensure all appropriate measures are taken to maintain as much of your natural smile as possible and avoid tooth loss and decay.
This way we can keep you smiling healthily for longer by pointing you in the right direction and leading you into positive hygiene habits.
Your preventive dentistry
When bacteria and decay attacks the weaker areas of the teeth, the damage can enter the canal of the tooth where the dental pulp becomes infected or damaged. Due to the bacteria and acids found in various foods and beverages, the hard outer layer of your tooth (the enamel) can degrade. Your teeth can then be left vunerable to this pulp infection. This is where root canal becomes necessary and to prevent tooth loss.
Oral splints on the other hand have a variety of different functions depending on the type of splint needed. This is where prevention becomes necessary to avoid unhealthy grinding habits or dangerous sleep disruption issues.
Give your smile the best possible chance at surviving your lifetime with preventive dentistry.
The following prevention treatments are available:
Preventive dentistry is not limited to these two options. The health of your gums, also plays a great role in preventing tooth loss and with periodontal disease as one of the most common yet treatable oral health problems, it is important you visit a professional to prevent excessive decay, infection and even tooth loss. Your gums are a very important aspect of your overall health, and can provide great insight to the health of your body. Therefore it is important to make sure you are always looking after your gums.
