Preventative Dentistry – Preventing tooth damage is better than curing it!

If you were doing your hair and suddenly found your brush was bloodstained or your scalp was bleeding, would you be worried and urgently ring your doctor? Our research at Designer Smiles, in Cremorne on Sydney’s lower North Shore, says – YES! So when you brush your teeth and your gums bleed, shouldn’t you also be worried? Gum bleeding isn’t normal and could signify a major underlying problem that needs urgent attention.

Similarly, don’t wait until you have a throbbing toothache, a tooth breaks or your breath smells bad before you do something. Preventative dentistry (also known as general or family dentistry) helps you prevent small problems becoming major issues that involve extensive, expensive work. Our team, led by aesthetic reconstructive dentist Dr. Sarkis Nalbandian, are experts in this area.

Regular check-ups will keep your smile clean, dazzling and detect problems such as tooth decay (caries) or gum disease in the early stages. This means we can treat you with minimal intervention, without pain and often in just one visit.
It also helps prevent further problems occurring. Preventative dentistry keeps your teeth and gums healthy for life.

When you call, we immediately begin to assess your concerns. You will find there are many options available to suit your needs, budget and schedule.
