It is very important that you maintain a good dental hygiene routine and visit our general dentist Glenside on a regular basis so that your teeth are clean and strong and that your gums are healthy to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. With a good dental hygiene routine at home and regular visits to our general dentist Glenside here at Glenside Dental, we are able to detect signs of decay or disease early and make sure that they are treated quickly and thoroughly so that they do not cause complications in the future. Our general dentist Glenside will look for white spots on your teeth which are early signs of cavities as well as pockets in your gum which may indicate the initial stages of periodontal disease. This means that if you visit us at least once every 6 months we can diagnose and treat decay and disease immediately and help you enjoy good dental health.
Regular check-ups with our dentist
When you visit us for a regular check-up we will often carry out an X-ray and this will also help identify any signs of decay or disease that may be affecting your dental health. Many dental health issues are asymptomatic to begin with or undetectable without a trained eye. Each time you visit us our general dentist Glenside will carry out a thorough examination of your teeth and gums and carefully look for any underlying issues which may be affecting your dentition.
Good dental hygiene
If we believe that you are in the initial stages of tooth decay or gum disease, we will put together an individually tailored treatment plan for you and ask to see you more frequently. We will make sure that you are brushing and flossing your teeth efficiently at home. We will advise that you avoid sticky and sugary foods and fizzy drinks. Sugary snacks are great for bacteria and promote the growth of cavities so it is important to be aware of what you eat. We will also speak to you about lifestyle choices such as smoking, drinking and drug abuse making sure that you have a healthy lifestyle that will help promote better dental health and overall wellbeing.
