Healthy teeth and gums at our Coorparoo family dental
It is very important that you visit the dentist at least once every six months with your family, so that you can undergo a regular examination of your teeth and gums and a scale and polish. Each time you visit our Coorparoo family dental practice our dentist will look for excess plaque and tartar on your teeth, as well as any signs of cavities, tooth decay and gum disease. Cavities can be detected by looking for white, brown or black spots on the teeth. Sometimes these cannot be detected by the naked eye but can be seen on X-rays. If you have gum disease your gums may appear red and swollen and our dentist will look for signs of inflammation and deep pockets around the teeth.
If you are suffering from tooth decay or disease then you may already have noticed a few symptoms such as bleeding gums, sensitivity, toothache or even bad breath. If you do then you should not wait for your regular check-up, but rather you should visit our Coorparoo family dental practice sooner and discuss your symptoms so that our dentist can put together a treatment plan for you. If your teeth are free of tooth decay and gum disease then once every six months is sufficient for maintaining your dental health. By undergoing a regular scale and polish any excess plaque or tartar will be removed from your teeth and by maintaining a good dental hygiene routine at home, you can prevent excess plaque and tartar from building up again inside your mouth. Your teeth will remain clean and white and you will smile happily and with ease. Here at our Coorparoo family dental practice we also look out for any unusual signs or symptoms and we carry out mouth cancer screening for your safety. If we notice anything suspicious then you will be referred to your doctor.
