Preventive Dentistry May Lower Your Risks

Preventive dentistry may lower your risks for common dental health conditions like cavities, infections, dental emergencies and periodontal disease.

Your dentist in Katoomba believes that prevention is a partnership between dentist and patient. We provide proactive treatments in our dental clinic, and you adopt a good oral maintenance routine at home that involves brushing and flossing.

A Prevention Plan

At Katoomba Dental Centre, we provide customised treatment plans for our patients. These plans complement your specific oral health and smile goals.

Typically, we recommend seeing the dentist once or twice per year—this varies based on the state of your oral health—for dental exams and teeth cleans.

During your exam, your dentist looks for emerging dental health issues. The idea is to treat these before they turn into time-consuming or costly conditions. Your dentist in Katoomba may also order x-rays to make sure no problems are lurking below the surface.

Your teeth clean gets rid of the bacteria and plaque that may contribute to tooth cavities, infections, emergency toothaches and periodontal disease.

A member of our dental team will provide instructions on how often to brush and floss at home as well. And we can even help with techniques and explain which toothbrush or floss might be ideal for you.

If you already have an oral health condition like gingivitis, your dentist may recommend special teeth cleanings and more dental visits to treat the condition. Your dentist may also suggest additional brushing and flossing sessions at home.

At Katoomba Dental Centre, we are dedicated to your oral health, and we want you to maintain your teeth for life.
