The link between the body and oral health has placed a greater importance on preventive dentistry.
In recent times the link between oral health and the overall health of patients has been explored and has linked gum disease to serious illnesses such as sleep apnoea, heart disease and stroke. It is very important to maintain your dental health and at Hyde Park Dental Care we recommend visiting our practice every six months so we can identify any key issues before they become severe. This recommended schedule can vary in relation to your unique needs and age, and Dr Joffe will be able to tailor a preventive dental health program during your first visit to his Sydney CBD practice.
Our preventive dental treatments include…
Periodontal Disease Treatment
By actively maintaining an in practice and at home oral hygiene routine, along with employing preventive dental techniques where necessary, you can help support the development of optimal oral and overall health. If you are unsure of best practice at home oral health maintenance, Dr Joffe and his highly experienced team are more than happy to share their dental knowledge and expertise.
Proper oral hygiene and care is the key to ensuring a healthy future.
Your daily oral hygiene routine should include:
- Brushing your teeth morning and night. This should be done in a circular motion with moderate pressure, and should come in contact with the gum line at a 45 degree angle. To remove bacteria responsible for unpleasant breath, brush your tongue or use a tongue scraper.
- Flossing your teeth daily. Use an adequate amount of floss for each tooth and gently floss the area multiple times to remove debris. Bleeding should not occur during gentle flossing.
Your oral hygiene routine at Hyde Park Dental Care should include:
- Regular check-ups and additional appointments if you experience any pain, discomfort or bleeding.
- A professional clean every six months.
By employing a regimented at home oral hygiene routine and visiting our dental centre for check-ups and regular cleans you can actively discourage the development of dental diseases such as periodontitis.
At Hyde Park Dental Care located in Sydney’s CBD we respect this link between oral health and overall health, and provide a range of preventive dental services to help combat gum disease and sleep disorders.
