General Dentistry

 

Why you should take gum and teeth problems seriously

Did you know that your general health may be adversely affected by dental disease? Researchers have found that people with gum disease are almost twice as likely to suffer from coronary artery disease (www.perio.org).

With plaque build up being a common cause of both gum disease and dental decay, avoiding plaque in the first place is important. This is often simply a matter of having a regular check up and clean, as an ongoing dental maintenance regime.

Macarthur Dental has many years' experience in all aspects of preventative dentistry to help you to fight plaque, stop the development of gum disease and keep your teeth and gum tissue in best condition.

For more complex general dentistry issues, Macarthur Dental will take care of problems you may be having with such things as:.
  • Decayed, broken or brittle teeth
  • Gaps and missing teeth
  • Inflamed, red, puffy or tender gums
  • Damaged nerves or ruptured blood vessels of the teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Chewing problems
  • Inability to tolerate hot or cold food and drink

Whatever the reason for contacting us, the gentle professionalism of the dentists and staff at Macarthur Dental will reassure you that you are in capable hands.

 
  

When you should see your dentist

Of course it is always better to see a dentist before things start to go wrong. This is especially true for children whose first visit to a dentist should be a positive experience.

But if you are having problems with your teeth, then it is the job of general dentistry to bring health to your teeth and gums.

Macarthur Dental's Comprehensive Examination

To better understand what you may need, your first visit at Macarthur Dental will usually involve a comprehensive examination of your mouth, where the soft tissues of your mouth and each tooth are carefully examined. This time is also valuable to you as you can fully explain issues of concern and have your questions answered.
