Protecting Teeth & Gums
Our caring dentists and dental hygienists will be able to assess your oral health and determine if there’s any issues, such as tooth decay or gum disease. Approximately 90 per cent of the population will experience gum disease, and it is the most common cause of tooth loss in the western world.
After assessing your oral health, our team will treat any existing issues, and then most importantly, provide preventative measures in order to minimise further deterioration. If restorative dental work is required, our dentist or hygienist will refer you to our oral health therapist. They are qualified to treat the teeth of children, teenagers and adults.
At Dental at Atune, we do everything we can to make your time at the dentist a pain-free and fun experience. Get in touch with us today to book a consultation.
Frequently Asked Questions
The reason the dentist always wears a mask is infection control. Whether it’s a simple cold or flu, to blood-borne diseases and infectious tissues, it’s important for dentists and hygienists to wear a mask not only to protect themselves, but also to protect you.
It’s been proven that regular flossing significantly reduces the risk of gum disease. Ideally, you should floss your teeth once a day (typically, before you brush your teeth). Ensure you thoroughly clean the gap between your teeth in order to remove built-up bacteria and plaque.
We recommend choosing a toothbrush with a small head and soft bristles. An electric toothbrush is also recommended. Make sure you brush your teeth for at least 2 minutes, twice a day.
Yes. In order to protect our team, it’s important to reschedule your dentist appointment to a day when you’re feeling better.
The best way to brush your teeth is the hold the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle, with the bristles pointed at your gum line. The small area between your gums and teeth is where bacteria and plaque tend to accumulate, so make sure your brush this area thoroughly. When the brush is placed down, make a gentle back and forth motion, brushing just one or two teeth at a time. It’s possible to brush too hard and too soft, so make sure you find that happy medium.
