Our approach to General Dentistry
At Bayview Dental in Claremont, our primary focus is maintaining the health and longevity of your teeth and gums through comprehensive general dentistry. We emphasise prevention and minimally invasive treatments to ensure superb oral health throughout your lifetime.
Our general dentistry services consist of regular cleanings and assessments designed to mitigate gum disease, also known as periodontal disease. This condition affects the supporting structures of your teeth, leading to gum and bone degradation, which can ultimately result in tooth loss.
Our comprehensive dental treatments commence with an initial consultation and examination to evaluate your oral health. As a general dentistry practice with a distinctive focus on cosmetic aspects, we strive to provide the finest blend of both worlds.
What happens at a general dentistry check up?
A comprehensive dental examination encompasses a thorough assessment of the teeth, gums, soft tissues of the cheeks and tongue, as well as occlusion. At Bayview Dental Claremont, our extensive dental check-up entails capturing a complete series of clinical photographs, conducting x-rays as necessary, and executing a 3D digital scan when required. This approach enables us to effectively monitor any alterations that may transpire within your oral cavity over time.
Over time, teeth may exhibit varying degrees of wear depending on an individual’s bite and other factors. Prioritising general dental care allows us to effectively restore worn-down teeth and maintain optimal chewing efficiency and bite strength. In addition, early detection and timely intervention can preserve and reinforce teeth that have developed cracks, averting potential fractures or tooth loss. Treatment options for such cases typically involve ceramic crowns or fillings to rejuvenate the tooth’s appearance and functionality.
How often should you get a general dentistry check up?
Routine Dental Examinations
To maintain exceptional oral hygiene and health, we advise scheduling professional hygiene appointments and examinations every six months, some may require more frequent visits, while others may need fewer. These semi-annual check-ups typically consist of:
- An extensive evaluation of your teeth, gums, and soft tissues.
- A meticulous cleaning and polishing procedure for your teeth.
- A cosmetic assessment to discuss potential smile enhancement treatments.
- The application of decay-preventing agents to ensure long-term dental well-being.
- Suggestions for required treatments, such as fillings/restorations, implants, crowns, and root canal treatments.
