Preventive Dentistry

Preventive dentistry is the backbone of everything we do at CFS Dental. In short, every treatment we carry out for you will only last if we incorporate the concept of preventing the onset and further deterioration of your dental and general health.

What Does Preventive Dentistry Involve?

At CFS Dental, we take a proactive approach to prevent the onset of dental diseases and their advancement. This process begins with a comprehensive examination and consultation with x-rays to diagnose any active breakdown of either your gums or teeth. Dr Ng will then identify the cause of your condition, and with our highly trained dental hygienist, they will step-by-step help you improve your home care technique in order to minimise future problems.

After the active phase of your dental treatment is completed, we will place you on our maintenance program to ensure your future dental wellbeing is protected.

Our Comprehensive Preventive Programme

The best dental care is the treatment you can avoid. Our preventive dental therapies are designed to help you keep your natural teeth for a lifetime, which is often the healthiest and most affordable way to approach oral health. We offer the full scope of preventive dental treatments to protect and preserve your smile.

  • Routine exams and cleans
  • Periodontal maintenance
  • Diagnostic x-rays
  • Fluoride applications
  • Fissure sealants
  • Athletic mouth guards
  • Bruxism splints

With just a small investment of your time at home by brushing, flossing and consuming a healthy diet, combined with your preventive care routine at our Oatley dental clinic, you can avoid many of the common dental conditions that people face when they do not adequately care for their teeth.
