Preventive Dentistry

Maintain your oral health with preventive dentistry…

Preventive dentistry helps you reduce your risk of dental health problems in the future. At Duncraig Dental Care in Perth we can help reduce the chances of future dental concerns, but your dental visits are only one part of preventive dentistry. Combining a regular dental hygiene routine at home with frequent visits to our Duncraig clinic is the best way to keep on top of your oral hygiene.

Preventive dentistry can protect your gums and teeth from serious dental health issues…

The most common condition that can be avoided by consistent brushing and flossing is gum disease:.

  • Gingivitis- early gum disease that occurs when dental plaque builds up on teeth, particularly in the area where the gum joins the tooth. The signs of gingivitis are bleeding, redness and swelling of the gum.
  • Periodontal disease or Periodontitis- advanced gum disease that may occur if gingivitis is not treated. The part of the gum that seals to the tooth becomes weakened and spaces form between the tooth and the gum. These spaces are called ‘periodontal pockets’ and bacteria can become trapped in these pockets. This bacteria can cause further inflammation which can lead to bleeding, swelling and receding gums together with bad breath, a bad taste in the mouth and loose teeth.

Prevent problems at Duncraig Dental Care…

We recommend that our patients visit us for a regular check-up at least twice a year unless any further emergencies or discomfort occurs. If you can maintain an effective oral hygiene routine and ensure that you are frequently visiting our practice you can potentially help reduce your chances of developing serious dental health problems.
