When did you last visit a dentist for a regular check-up? How well do you know the status of your oral health? Even with consistent upkeep and brushing and flossing, you may still develop cavities, plaque buildup and other unwanted conditions. At Burwood Diamond Dental, we strive to provide our patients with the best chance of avoiding detrimental conditions through preventative care and regular visits. Our cozy, family atmosphere helps patients feel welcome when they come in for routine check-ups and cleanings.
What Is General Dentistry?
Think about visiting a doctor or taking your car to the mechanic for regular service. A professional evaluation goes a long way in keeping your body and your vehicle running smoothly! Teeth are no different! Keeping up with your oral health avoids more significant problems further on in the future, and general dentistry aims to keep your teeth clean and looked after consistently. When we say 'general dentistry,' patients can expect the following:
- General exam of the jaws, face, neck, gums and oral tissues
- Teeth cleaning and thorough examination
- Fluoride treatment
- Advice on treatments
Regular check-ups offer the advantage of dealing with minor problems like cavities in their early stages. We can prevent more significant instances of decay that compromise tooth structures or damage the gums with preemptive care.
Getting Established with a Dentist You Can Trust
While we can perform some treatments with just one or two visits, Dr Khoshamadi takes the time to get to know his patients and their teeth. Establishing trust and solid relationships with our patients at Burwood Diamond Dental allows for more detailed record-keeping, knowledge of patient preference and overall, more personalised care in a familiar location.
Benefits of General Dentistry
Imagine only visiting a dentist when something really bothers your teeth or gums. Not only do you have to find help quickly (potentially from someone you don't know very well), but you may also experience more pain and discomfort before finally getting into the dental chair. Getting established with a familiar clinic and scheduling routine check-ups can sometimes avoid the need for some potentially costly procedures such as:
- Tooth extractions
- Root canal treatments
- Placement of dental crowns or bridges
- Dental implants
When the need for treatment arises, we are here to help with tooth fillings, crowns, bridges, cosmetic dentistry, emergency dentistry, and tooth extraction.
Patients can benefit from regular cleanings and advice on lifestyle habits like diet, choice of toothpaste and mouthwash. Visiting a dentist twice a year can also offer peace of mind when it comes to knowing the status of your teeth! Having an idea of where you stand regarding your oral health can assist in making informed decisions when it comes to procedures or cosmetic dental options. Patients with a consistent history of good oral health can more easily undergo treatments like teeth whitening or potentially consider teeth alignment options like SmileStyler or Invisalign.
We enjoy having our existing patients visit our practice and are currently welcoming newcomers to get acquainted with our team's family environment here at Burwood Diamond Dental.
