Dentistry Illawarra gives great importance to the prevention of the most common dental diseases, such as tooth decay and gum disease. Regular visits to the dentist are essential to identify these problems and to treat them early.
Through the professional removal of dental plaque and tartar with the use of scaling and polishing instruments a reduction in the risk of gum disease could be achieved. These instruments could also remove the external stains on teeth from coffee, red wine and tobacco.
The usage of re-mineralising agents (topical fluoride, CPP-ACP “tooth mousse”, etc) could also help in the prevention of tooth decay and dental erosion.
