How do I know if my teeth and gums are healthy?

The only way to know for sure if you have healthy teeth and gums is with a dental examination. Routine check-ups at our Gawler, SA dental clinic will reveal not only whether your gums are healthy but whether any other problems are lurking, such as tooth decay.

Patients often wonder why they should visit the dentist when their teeth seem to be just fine. After all, there are plenty of other things that seem more fun to spend money on. But if you want to save money in the long run, routine dental check-ups can do that.

When you skip dental visits, no one notices the small problems that can easily grow into big ones. A small cavity can become a tooth that develops an infection and needs a root canal. If you don’t have your teeth cleaned, the plaque that your hygienist can remove during a routine clean might worsen until you find yourself with gum disease.

Many dental issues have no signs or symptoms in their earliest stages. By the time you realise you have a problem, you might need more expensive or more invasive dental treatments. It’s best to protect your oral health with routine dental care, and it would be our pleasure to welcome you to our Gawler, SA dental clinic.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
