Dental health is of vital importance to maintaining a healthier mouth and body. When a patient has poor oral hygiene, they can potentially develop a variety of dental and overall health problems, such as gum disease (or gingivitis), oral infections, cardiovascular disease, strokes and periodontitis (the inflammation of your gums and bone).

Preventative Dentistry

The importance of a dental hygiene appointment extends much further than cleaning excess plaque off your teeth and gums. The reality is that this appointment allows your dentist the ability to detect any early signs of a dental problem, and essentially intervene as early as possible before it becomes more severe.

At the end of the day, a small filling or identifying a cavity at the earliest point possible could end up saving you thousands in dental bills at a later date, as these dental procedures become much more complex based on the severity of your case.

The fundamental belief amongst our dental team is that we are able to educate our patients to make the right ‘dental decisions’. This means demonstrating oral health care procedures correctly, so this can be maintained by you at home.

If you are a new patient or a patient who hasn’t visited us in a while, contact our dental team to book in for your oral hygiene appointment.

Face Value Dental is located in the Brisbane CBD.
