Maintaining healthy teeth and gums can be an important part of a person’s overall health. Fortunately, many dental issues can be prevented with the right general and preventative dental treatment. At Complete Orthodontics & Dental Care, we offer our patients a wide range of preventative and general dentistry services to identify existing dental problems and help prevent future issues from developing.
Our family-friendly dental clinic in Langwarrin offers affordable general and preventative dentistry services for all ages, meaning all your dental needs can be taken care of in one place.
Our general and preventative dental services include:
Typically, the treatments that fall under the umbrella of general and preventative dental care are ones that aim to maintain good oral health and prevent dental issues from developing to an advanced state. This can be anything from regular teeth cleaning to reduce the risk of cavities through to wisdom tooth extraction to prevent complications of impacted wisdom teeth. General dentistry services differ from cosmetic dentistry in that they focus more on the health and function of teeth rather than their appearance.
You can best care for your oral health by brushing your teeth twice daily and making sure to use toothpaste that contains fluoride. Flossing every day is also recommended for healthy teeth and gums. In addition to having a good oral hygiene routine at home, it’s also important to visit your dentist regularly for check ups. You should visit a dentist or dental hygienist at least every 6 months, or whenever you experience any dental issues such as pain, sensitivity or bleeding.
