They say prevention is better than the cure. W Dental Baldivis encourages you to be proactive about your oral hygiene. Small, simple steps can certainly make a big difference to your oral health, making our job much easier.
Developing an effective tooth brushing technique
The most simple step is to brush and floss twice a day, using the correct technique. Using the right tooth brush also makes a difference. We recommend an electric toothbrush or a soft bristle manual one. Inter-proximal brushes are a good option for those difficult to reach parts of the mouth.
Fissure sealant treatment is available at W Dental Baldivis. This involves sealing the grooves of the molars, preventing food particles from getting stuck, thereby reducing the chance of decay.
Tooth Remineralisation Treatment
Decay occurs when the acidity level in your mouth reaches a certain level. Tooth re-mineralisation treatment helps protect your teeth by neutralising the acidic environment produced by food and bacteria. W dental Baldivis recommends in chair remineralisation treatment as well as the use of take home “tooth mousse” kits.
Scale & Cleans
Regular scale & clean treatment removes calculus, preventing the development of more serious conditions such as gum and periodontal disease.
