Preventive Dentistry

Prevention is always better than a cure, and at Ironside Advanced Dental we focus strongly on ensuring your oral health

Preventive dentistry is aimed towards preventing problems from occurring to minimise the need for restorative dentistry in the future. Even if a minor problem exists, this form of dentistry looks at treating the problem effectively in the early stages to prevent it from becoming worse and causing further concerns later in life.

Preventing issues is the ultimate form of dental protection

When you come to Ironside Advanced Dental, you not only come to an esteemed dental professional, you come to an elite prosthodontist who is a leader in his field. We encourage our patients visit our Sydney CBD dental practice every six months so we can track your oral health and treat any issues before they become severe and problematic. At your dental check-up our elite prosthodontist, Dr Ironside, will assess your oral health and ensure there is no sign of:

  • Gum disease
  • Tooth decay
  • Damaged teeth
  • Damaged nerves
  • Impacted teeth

If any of these dental problems are found, Dr Ironside will tell you and recommend a specific treatment to treat the issue. We will always inform you of any findings we make and fully educate you on what is necessary to eliminate the problem. Some issues may only require simple cosmetic procedures, while others may involve more invasive treatments.

What preventive measures can I take?

Take control of your oral health – We recommend that patients visit us every six months for a regular dental check-up.
Allow us to remove bacterial that cannot be removed with regular brushing – Regular professional cleaning and dental examinations can prevent more serious problems from occurring and enable you to maintain good oral health for longer.
Remain committed to your dental health – Between visits; it’s important you take care of your teeth by brushing twice a day and flossing daily. It’s also a good idea to use an antiseptic mouthwash to eliminate germs, prevent gum disease and bad breath.
