Preventive Dentistry in Mitchell Park, Marion, Adelaide

We offer concise and relevant advice regarding specific treatments that you may need, and efficient action if & when required.

It is clear that our mouth is not an isolated part of the body and a healthy mouth is an important part of a healthy body. Marion Dental Clinic specialises in Family Dentistry and we believe prevention is always better than cure. Therefore we take time to discuss and explain preventative techniques including change of diet, flossing, brushing habits and the effective use of dental care products at home combined with clinical care.

Preventative Techniques

There’s very little that you need to do besides booking in a time and date for your comprehensive dental exam. If you have been experiencing any pain or discomfort with your teeth or gums, try to keep a log of it in advance of your appointment so that you can offer as much information to the dentist as possible when you discuss it at your dental exam. Always feel free to ask questions or seek advice during your comprehensive dental exam.

What should a comprehensive dental exam include?

AT HOME There are many things that you can do yourself to keep your teeth, mouth and gums healthy. Brushing your teeth thoroughly twice a day with quality dental care products will immediately get you on the right track. In addition, you should floss your teeth regularly and use a mouth wash where appropriate. Have a look at your diet too. Perhaps you are drinking a lot of sugary drinks or acidic fruit juice, or perhaps you regularly snack on food or sweets that may be contributing to a build up of plaque on your teeth. Always keep an eye on your teeth and gums. If you notice changes including bleeding, pain or sudden discolouration you should always consult your dentist or hygienist as soon as you can. AT THE DENTIST It’s essential to make regular appointments with your dentist so that they can keep a close eye on your dental health and hygiene, increasing the chances of spotting any problems before they develop too far. One of the main things that dentists will be able to assist with in terms of preventative dentistry is regular and deep cleaning gum treatments. Gum disease infects the tissue that surrounds and supports the teeth causing them to become red and swollen. An early indicator of this is that the gums begin to bleed easily. If the early stage of gum disease (gingivitis) develops into advanced stages (periodontitis) you may risk the gums and bones that support the teeth becoming seriously damaged. In some cases the teeth can become loose and fall out or require extraction by a dentist.

From Our Happy Patients

Loveable staff and excellent service! The doctor was fast and efficient and had a true patient-centred care about her. The entire interior is modern and kid friendly. Definitely coming back for many years! Toby Wilson

My first time seeing Quynh. She was attentive, professional and I felt that she genuinely cares about her patients. I will do my regular check-up with her from now on. The clinic was also clean and organized. Thanks a lot! Pouya Parseyan

Lovely colourful clinic and friendly staff. The dentist took the time to explain the details of the treatment I needed and made sure I was aware of all my options before I decided on a plan. Really helpful! I can’t recommend them highly enough! 🙂 Luna K
