Preventive Care & Dental hygiene
If you want to look and feel great, and always be able to eat and speak with ease and comfort, the first place to start is with professional and regular dental care.
At Morgan Street Dental Centre, we identify problems early on and prevent them from becoming chronic or long standing issues that may progress to bigger problems. A thorough examination, including your gums, jaw joints, tooth charting and full radiographs, is the first step. Your medical history and lifestyle habits will be analysed, so we can identify risk factors that can affect your oral health, e.g. smoking, certain medications, foods and drinks. We will also develop strategies to help your specific condition such as dry mouth or tooth wear.
Don’t you just love that ‘clean’ feeling when you run your tongue around your mouth after a trip to the dentist?
Regular professional hygiene is vital to prevent the risk of gum disease, tooth decay, dental infection and tooth loss. Combined with effective at home care it is the most important thing you can do for your teeth and gums. Daily brushing and flossing and regular examinations can make a long-term difference to not only your smile, but also your overall health. Researchers have reported a link between gum disease and health issues such as diabetes, heart disease, strokes and premature births, etc.
WE RECOMMEND YOU SEE OUR DENTISTS EVERY 6 MONTHS FOR PREVENTIVE DENTAL CARE, TO ENSURE GOOD ORAL HEALTH IS MAINTAINED.
