Preventative Dentistry – Because everyone needs to look after their teeth.

Enjoy a lifetime of good dental health and keep cavities, dental pain, gum disease and costly dental treatments at bay.

At Aria Dental, we are primarily in the business of ‘rescuing’ people who have been careless with their oral hygiene in the past, but prevention is better than cure, especially when it comes to your teeth. Take care of your teeth through preventative dentistry, and you’ll not only help save them – you’ll help keep your body healthy, too. That’s why at Aria Dental, we’re here to help you to keep your teeth in tip-top condition for as long as possible.

Preventative dentistry or oral hygiene maintenance consists of home care and professional care. Usually, patients are encouraged to come in for a six-monthly check-up with a dentist near you; however, everyone is different. Your dentist will tell you how frequently you should come in for a visit. We’ll also educate you on homecare so you are cleaning your teeth and gums to ensure optimal dental health.

A Spa Experience for your Teeth – The EMS Airflow System

No more scraping and scratching! The Airflow EMS system comfortably and efficiently removes biofilm, stains, bacteria, and calculus using a gentle stream of warm water, a fine powder and compressed air to gently exfoliate your teeth. These three components are combined in a high-powered jet which gently cleans and polishes your teeth, including all those hard-to-reach areas above and below the gum line (watch the videos below).

The EMS Airflow system uses revolutionary technology to remove harmful bacteria gently, effectively and safely in your mouth without an instrument even touching your teeth. This amazing system removes the need for those traditional manual and power instruments, making the process more relaxing for the patient.

The bonus advantage of the EMS Airflow teeth cleaning treatment is it also removes stains on your teeth, for a super clean and bright finish. Many patients have never experienced their teeth so bright and clean before. Typically, the Airflow EMS system can remove stains caused by tea, coffee, red wine, food stains, medicines, and even minor tobacco stains. It is a great, low-cost confidence booster for special occasions such as dance concerts, weddings, and job interviews.

The EMS Airflow treatment can be completed on your regular visits and is safe for adults and children. It can be used on all teeth types, including crown restorations, dental implants, veneers, orthodontic braces, and hypersensitive patients.

What is involved in a traditional a scale and clean?

1. Examination

Not every scale and clean requires a comprehensive exam by the dentist. Each patient is unique, and depending on their needs, they may require an examination every three, six, or 12 months. The dental hygienist will examine the soft tissues of the mouth, and if they do notice any issues with the dental hard tissues, then they will ask the dentist to complete an examination.

2. Plaque Removal

This is also called dental prophylaxis and involves using a slow-speed handpiece and a brush with prophylactic paste (similar to toothpaste) to remove plaque on the teeth mechanically.

3. Calculus Removal

Calculus, also known as tartar, often builds up on the teeth both above and below the gum line. Calculus is attached to the teeth and is very hard and cannot be removed with dental prophylaxis. It requires mechanical removal with an ultrasonic scaler and hand instrument.

4. Professional Cleaning

Often, patients believe that a ‘scale and clean’ means that their teeth stains will be removed, and the teeth will appear whiter. However, a scale and clean primarily involves the removal of plaque and calculus for improved oral health. Tooth stain removal is an aesthetic issue and can often also be completed at a scale and clean appointment.

How often should I visit my dentist or oral health therapist for preventative dentistry?

Like visiting the hairdresser for your cut, style and or colour, visiting your dentist or oral health therapist should be considered as part of your regular oral hygiene routine. Regular, preventative dentistry check-ups are your best strategy for keeping your natural teeth and avoiding filings, extractions or tooth loss.

Regular dental visits keep your mouth healthy by checking for cavities, plaque build-up and tartar on your teeth. The build-up of plaque leads to tartar, which can cause oral diseases if not treated. Our Aria team can help you keep your mouth healthy and offer advice on keeping it that way.

Understandably, for some, a trip to the dentist can be a chore. Perhaps you don’t like dentists or have had a negative dental experience that makes you feel uncomfortable or causes anxiety. At Aria Dental, you can relax as we use the latest in technology to make the cleaning process effortless, comfortable and pain-free.

Keep cavities, disease and bad breath at bay

A preventative dentistry routine exam, clean and scale helps to keep plaque build-up, bacterial infection, cavities and bad breath at bay. This, in turn, can also help you prevent developing gum disease, which develops in two stages:

Gingivitis: The patient notices bleeding and sore gums, redness and swelling.

Periodontitis: a more serious condition where you notice receding gums, bad breath, wobbly teeth and even tooth loss.
