Understanding the need for Preventative Dentistry
At AMR Dental, we emphasise the importance of preventive dentistry and patient education. Patients who know more about their oral health can make better decisions about treatment options and have a better understanding of good oral hygiene practices to do at home. Patients who know more about their oral health also tend to take better care of it.
We recommend seeing your dentist in margaret river twice each year for routine check-ups and cleans. This schedule also enables our dentists to discover issues with your oral health while they are still small and less invasive to treat.
Dr David McInerney, Dr Julian Painter and our amazing hygiene team look forward to providing you and your family with high-quality dental care so you can enjoy healthy smiles for life.
What is the difference between preventive and general dentistry?
We offer the preventive care needed to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Regular dental cleans remove the plaque and tartar from your teeth that can cause cavities and gum disease. A good preventive regimen of seeing us twice each year and brushing and flossing at home will help you avoid most dental emergencies and may also help with gum disease and cavities.
Preventive dentistry means we partner with you to help keep your teeth healthy through good practices like brushing, flossing, dental check-ups and cleans on a schedule.
Our dentists have experience treating patients of all ages, from the youngest members of your family to the oldest. When treatment beyond preventive care is needed, our general dental services include:
- Tooth-coloured fillings to fill your cavity without drawing attention to your tooth
- Crowns and bridges to help you achieve a full smile
- Dentures to take the place of missing teeth
- Dental implants—a popular solution to tooth loss
- Root canal therapy to help save your tooth
If your smile is healthy but isn’t all that it could be, our dentists can talk to you about cosmetic dentistry treatments. Treatments such as teeth whitening and veneers can take your smile from dull to dazzling in a short amount of time.
