The importance of visiting our dentist


Visiting our dentist in Parramatta on a regular basis is very important in making sure that your teeth are white and clean, that your gums are healthy and strong and that you have wonderful, fresh breath. A healthy mouth is important for overall health and wellbeing. If you suffer from dental health issues, this can have a negative impact on all aspects of your life. It can affect the appearance of your teeth and this can have a negative impact on your self-worth and your self-esteem. It can affect the way people look at you and in the long run it can have a negative impact on your general health and wellbeing. Next, dental health issues cause unpleasant symptoms. This could include toothache, bleeding gums, bad breath and an unpleasant taste in your mouth. This can affect you on a day-to-day basis. It may mean that you have to spend long hours in the dentist chair undergoing complex treatment that can be expensive in comparison to visiting the dentist regularly and undergoing preventive therapy for looking after your teeth and gums.

Dental health issues can also develop into irreversible conditions. If you avoid visiting our dentist in Parramatta then this may cause irreversible damage to your teeth which can result in tooth decay, gum disease and eventually tooth loss. Although our dentist in Parramatta has a range of tooth replacement options available for you, again this can include extensive dental work and be costly. To avoid dental health problems you need to visit our dentist at least once every six months and more often if you suffer from cavities, tooth decay or gum disease. We will also recommend that you visit our hygienist regularly to make sure that your teeth are free of excessive levels of plaque and tartar, as well as any signs of gum disease. The hygienist can clean your teeth a lot more efficiently than you can at home and remove plaque and tartar from those hard-to-reach areas, as well as below your gum line, places which you cannot reach with an ordinary toothbrush or floss.

Maintaining a life-long relationship with us

You need to visit us at Spa Dental Parramatta with your whole family. Good dental health needs to start from an early age, it has to be maintained over the years, visiting the dentist more regularly when your teeth do not feel at their best. For example it’s important that teenagers visit the dentist more regularly when their adult teeth are protruding to try and prevent long-term complications in the future. Pregnant women should visit the dentist as hormonal changes can cause teeth to become sensitive and gums to be more prone to disease. Patients who have underlying health complications such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease should also visit the dentist more regularly to prevent tooth decay and gum disorders. Smokers and patients who may be involved in drug abuse should visit the dentist more regularly as they are significantly more likely to develop dental health issues.

It is important to note that the specific recommendations for frequency of dental visits may vary depending on individual circumstances and should be discussed with a dentist at Spa Dental Parramatta.
