Preventative Dental Care in Melbourne
Protecting your teeth is a high priority at Carlton Dental. Our dentists and dental hygienists work together to provide superlative dental health services such as preventive teeth cleaning and teeth whitening care to ensure that your teeth remain sparkling clean. Using cutting-edge techniques, we strive to provide early disease diagnosis, including decay detection, diagnosis of gum disease and oral cancer.
In addition to the compassionate care you receive from our expert dentists, our dental hygienists assist our dentists in treating patients. Trained in specific clinical procedures, they use educational, preventive and therapeutic methods to enable adults and children to achieve and maintain excellent oral health:
- Explain & teach on a tooth by tooth basis how to prevent and control dental disease.
- Instruct patients on how to look after their teeth and mouth after operations
- Inform patients of the causes of bad breath — from deposits on the teeth to dental cavities to a furry tongue or even infected tonsils — as well as treatment options
- Assist in the prevention and control of dental caries (decay) and gum disease
- Select and use appropriate fluoride treatments on your teeth to lower the rate of dental decay
- Apply dental sealant, a hard plastic material placed in the fissures or chewing surfaces of molar teeth at the back of the mouth to prevent caries
- Expose and process dental x-rays, including digital X-ray, transillumination tools and laser diagnosis
- Remove deposits and stains from teeth by scaling and root planning
- Polish tooth restorations
- Make impressions of patients’ mouths for the construction of study casts and mouth guards
Additionally, our experienced dentists can fit you with custom mouth guards to protect your teeth during sports as well as during sleep if you grind or clench. We also offer crowns to retain the aesthetic appeal of your teeth after root canals or when a tooth is missing, giving you the option of a bridge with porcelain teeth if that is your preference.
