Preventative Dentistry

Preventative Dentistry Keeping your teeth and gums healthy and preventing future dental issues is the main focus of preventative dentistry.

DonEast Supreme Dental offers preventive treatments to avoid decay, periodontal (gum) diseases, tooth erosion, and more.

Preventing dental issues comes in many forms – education, treatment, and practice. To maintain your oral health, you are advised to visit your Doncaster East dentist every six months.

While dental treatments are essential for preventing oral diseases, nothing can beat proper dental health education as a first line of defense.

Everyone should know that early examinations and cleanings prevent bacteria build-up (which is the source of tooth decay) and can ensure oral health for a lifetime.

Dental examinations help your Doncaster East dentist determine if you have dental issues.

Another factor for maintaining healthy teeth and gums is a good oral hygiene routine. Dental treatments are less effective if you don’t know how to take care of your teeth.

Brush your teeth regularly using a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste.

It is advised that you brush 30 minutes after every meal to prevent the food debris from staying in your mouth too long, especially between your teeth.

Food particles feed acid-forming bacteria that erode your teeth enamel, contributing to teeth sensitivity and decay.

When it comes to preventing dental issues, your trusted Doncaster East dentist is here to help you!

Dental Check-ups

During your dental check-up, you will undergo two phases – the examination and oral prophylaxis.

At your dental visit, your Doncaster East dentist will check for cavities in your teeth. You may undergo X-rays to detect cavities that sit between your teeth.

Plaque and tartar presence will also be checked. Your gums and tongue will also be checked for any irregularities.

You can’t remove tartar at home. That is why it is important to have your teeth professionally cleaned.

X-rays

Dental X-rays look for decay, gum disease, and other dental problems. The results help your dentist suggest appropriate dental treatments.

White Fillings

White fillings are tooth-coloured resins that are used to restore decayed or broken teeth. They repair teeth that have become damaged by tooth decay or injury.

They are the best alternatives for silver fillings, which are aesthetically unpleasant and contain mercury.

Dental Sealants

The primary purpose of dental sealants is to prevent tooth decay from spreading throughout your teeth.

Dental sealants are materials placed in pits and fissures, creating a smooth, easy to clean surface.

Dental sealants are often used in children who tend to develop tooth decay and placed as soon as the permanent molar teeth develop.

Scaling and Cleaning

One of the most commonly performed dental procedures is dental scaling and cleaning. It removes accumulations on your teeth like plaque, tartar, and stains.

Mouthguards and Splints

Mouthguards, usually custom-fitted, are made for people with sleep apnoea, often loud snorers. They adjust the placement of the lower jaw and tongue to free the airway.

Splints, on the other hand, are custom-made appliances that are attached around the teeth and over the tongue to help people cope with mild or moderate sleep apnoea.

They hold the lower jaw slightly down and forward.

Children’s Dentistry

Children’s dentistry centres on providing a child-friendly environment for infants, children, and adolescents while they receive the dental treatments they deserve.
