Everyone should see a general dentist in Bankstown for routine oral health examinations, twice-yearly cleanings, and treatment of routine oral health complications, such as minor tooth decay. General dentistry is as much about prevention as it is about treatment. Patients who visit a general dentist can expect professional oral health care, as well as education and advisement about self-care between office visits.

Did you know…

that Ideally it’s recommended to see the dentist every six months? Doing so can aid in the detection of decay, oral disease, and other dental health problems before they progress and become severe. If you are at risk for certain complications or have a history of periodontal disease and advanced decay, you may need to visit your general dentist on a more frequent basis. Patients who visit their dentist regularly and as recommended are more likely to retain their natural teeth and enjoy a lifetime of good oral health.
