Our Preventative Care Services
Care and Maintenance
We will work to detect conditions and prevent any problems as soon as they arise. Finding any dental problems early can help you save a lot of money down the road. During your routine dental check-up, your Croydon dentist will perform the following:
- Evaluate your home care and dental habits
- Check the structure, strength and appearance of your teeth
- Inspect your lips, cheeks, tongue and throat for any signs of oral cancer
- Evaluate the health of your gums
- Assess your jaw joints
Regular dental visits allow your dental team at A Supa Smile to detect and diagnose early signs and symptoms of developing oral health diseases, which means that such these issues can be prevented or treated at a manageable stage. At A Supa Smile, we recommend half-yearly cleanings and check-ups.
Oral Hygiene Instructions
Our dedicated dental team will assist you in upholding a high standard of oral hygiene. Practicing good dental habits helps you avoid discomforts caused by dental pain and the possibility of costly dental procedures later.
We will provide detailed instructions on how you can improve your dental health at home. This involves proper flossing and brushing techniques as well as discussing the types of dental problems and how you can prevent them, and the first aid you can do at home in case of a dental emergency.
Professional dental cleaning is a modern and comprehensive way of cleaning your teeth using special dental tools. The goal is to eliminate plaque and tartar buildup that has gathered on your teeth over time.
Only a dental professional can remove hard buildup of plaque. This is why it’s crucial to visit your dental team regularly for cleaning. The cleaning procedure will leave your tooth surfaces clean and smooth.
Topical Fluoride Treatment
Fluoride treatments keep your teeth enamel strong and free from dental decay. Young patients who are still developing their dental habits and adult patients who are at greater risk of decay may benefit from topical fluoride treatments.
The fluoride is applied to your teeth to prevent the development of decay. It strengthens the enamel by providing the minerals it requires. This process is called remineralisation.
Depending on the specific need of the patient, dental X-rays are generally required every 2 to 3 years. X-rays can diagnose issues that are not easily identified with check-ups. This includes impacted teeth, abscesses, tumours, damaged jawbones and decay that forms between the teeth. At A Supa Smile, we use state of the art X-ray machines.
We provide high-quality custom mouthguards for active people and patients who deal with teeth grinding. Your dentist at A Supa Smile will first assess your jaw and teeth. Then, a skilled dental technician will fabricate a mouthguard that’s designed to provide the best fit, size and thickness for your teeth. Custom made mouthguards also provides the best comfort and protection you need.
