Bacteria in the mouth can cause dental cavities and gum disease. A good dental care plan will help you beat cavities and gum disease through regular dental check-ups and cleaning treatments will support all round dental and oral hygiene.
A thorough dental check-up helps us evaluate a patient’s circumstance regarding their overall dental hygiene and the efficiency of teeth cleaning at home . During routine dental visits, our dentists check for signs of tooth decay and gum disease. Our practitioner may recommend taking some x-rays to assist in a more accurate diagnosis. X-rays are entirely optional, however, we highly recommend them as without this helpful tool some cavities and dental conditions are impossible to detect.
Everyone’s lifestyles are continually changing, and bodies (including teeth) always adjusting. We, therefore, recommend regular professional dental check-ups between every six months.
Our professional team will clean your teeth thoroughly for this treatment. Be sure to clean your teeth at home before arriving for your appointment as it will help remove food and plaque beforehand, allowing us to focus on the more difficult areas to clean. Our team will also help you with improving your oral maintenance habits to achieve optimum dental health. We are here to help you obtain the best results so there is no need for you to feel uncomfortable when speaking with us.
Bacteria on the thin plaque layer covering the teeth are notorious for causing gum disease.
You can prevent gum disease and tooth decay by removing this plaque layer, correctly and adequately every day.
Our team will formulate a customised daily cleaning routine designed just for you and help you choose the right products to achieve optimum results.
Dental sealants are a simple procedure in which the deep grooves of the teeth, known as fissures, are filled with a tooth–coloured resin coating.
They are highly effective in the prevention of tooth decay, particularly on the biting surfaces or irregular pits of teeth.
For any number of reasons, at times, our patients may require a tooth extraction. Sometimes, teeth need extracting because they are decayed; others may have advanced gum disease, or a tooth has broken in such a way that is not repairable. Other teeth may need removing due to being poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth), or due to preparation for orthodontic treatment.
The removal of a single tooth may lead to problems related to your chewing ability, issues with your jaw joint and shifting teeth, all of which can have a significant impact on your dental health.
To avoid these complications, in most cases, Dr Yang will discuss alternatives to extractions as well as replacement options for the extracted tooth.
