Oral Health and Preventative Treatments

Oral health and preventative treatments focus on preventative dental measures for your teeth and smile. Preventative oral health consultations, professional cleans and examinations, gum disease diagnosis and treatments along with Minimal Intervention Dentistry all fall under this banner.

Please see our Oral Health drop down menu to read more about what preventative treatment and services we offer, right here in the heart of Gympie.

GUM DISEASE DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENTS

Periodontal (gum) disease is a bacterial infection that results when food, bacteria and tartar (plaque) are not sufficiently removed from the teeth by thorough brushing and regular flossing.

In the beginning, the infection develops along the gum line. If left untreated it may progress beneath the skin to further damage the gums, teeth and bone. Signs such as bleeding, receding, swollen, red or tender gums, persistent bad breath, sensitive or loose teeth or obvious plaque can all be signs of gum disease. If it is found that you do have gum disease you are not alone; up to 80% of the general population experience some form of gum disease at one time or another. Research shows that periodontal disease may be one of the most prevalent diseases known to human kind. Therefore it is important to ensure gum disease is treated early.

MINIMAL INTERVENTION DENTISTRY

We are really excited about this new movement within the Dental field of Minimal Intervention Dentistry and have embraced it into the practice. The primary goal of MID is to conserve healthy tooth structure. Using scientific advances, MID allows dentists to perform the least amount of dentistry needed while never removing more of the tooth structure than is required. When treatment is required, we use long-lasting, biologically sound dental materials that not only conserves the maximum tooth structure, it also reduces the need for future repairs. These new technologies and remineralisation products weren’t previously available; we are proud to offer a choice of materials for different patient’s needs and requirements.

PREVENTATIVE ORAL HEALTH CONSULTATIONS

We have a firm belief at Channon Lawrence Dental that prevention is better than cure.

The concept behind Preventative Consultations is two fold. Firstly we can identify disease and instigate treatment or prevention. Secondly we can identify risk of diseases occurring and implement strategies to remove or manage said risk.

These strategies can incorporate diet reviews, counselling-inquiry, assessing disease knowledge, implementing preventive measures and assessing lifestyle habits that impact your oral and systemic health.

Risk management and identification will go through several stages throughout your life and will require different strategies at different stages.

If disease is found and treatment is necessary however, the earlier treatment commences the more effective it will be.

We offer professional cleans and examinations in all Preventative consultations.

Please contact our friendly reception staff to find out more. Call 07 5482 7688 or contact us through our request an appointment page.

PROFESSIONAL CLEANS AND EXAMINATIONS

During our professional cleans we remove the plaque that has accumulated on your teeth. Even with careful brushing, flossing and a thorough at-home program, plaque will still be apparent; especially in those hard to reach places. We use a variety of special tools to help us remove plaque to help prevent decay.

We recommend you see us every 6 months for a thorough clean.
