You may think that if you don’t have a toothache or notice any oral health changes that you don’t need preventive dentistry. You brush and floss daily, and maybe you think that’s enough.

However, most experts, including our dentists in Casuarina, NT, recommend once or twice-yearly dental exams and teeth cleans to lower your risks for cavities, root infections, and gum disease. If you have an oral health condition, your dentist may alter this schedule to better fit your needs.

Preventive dentistry is about more than a healthy smile. It is also about saving you time and money long-term by preventing costly and ongoing dental health complications later on.

Your Dental Exam and Teeth Clean in Casuarina, NT

Your preventive exam includes a comprehensive check-up from your dentist, x-rays as needed, and professional teeth cleaning.

Your dentist can spot emerging oral health issues during your exam before they turn into costly or complicated undertakings. And your teeth clean clears away the bacteria that household toothbrushes and floss cannot completely eradicate—the very bacteria that can lead to tooth decay and gum disease.

Your dentist will share any findings with you, and our hygienist can provide brushing and flossing tips to help you optimise your at-home routine between visits to the dentist. We know that sometimes a busy lifestyle can mean skimping on brushing and flossing. Our hygienist can help.

Between our efforts and your at-home routine, we can significantly lower your risks for preventable oral health complications.
