Come see us today to enjoy our quality preventative dentistry services.
Dental check up
A dental check up is one the basics of dentistry. A comprehensive check up allows your dentist to check your oral health status and devise a dental plan to address existing dental problems.
In a regular dental check up, your overall dental health is checked. Everything that affects your oral health is taken into consideration – your neck, jawbone, and soft tissues, among other elements.
Your child’s oral health is as important as yours or that of any other age group. We believe that the earlier children are aware of the importance of having good oral hygiene, the higher are their chances of having optimum oral health in the future.

Hygiene preventative dentistry
Caring for your teeth does not end when you leave the dentist’s chair. Good oral hygiene habits at home play an important role in you oral health journey. In fact, good oral hygiene habits are your first defense against dental problems.
At Your Gold Coast Dentist, our care for our patients does not end in the office; we make sure that each patient is amply educated about good oral hygiene.
Mouthguards and splints
Mouthguards are protective dental appliance worn to cover your teeth. The mouthguards cushion blows and protect your teeth from impact.
Night splints function like a mouthguard but are worn during sleep. This is recommended for bruxism sufferers. As the two arches meet and clench, the teeth are protected.
Dental or fissure sealants are thin, protective coatings made of plastic. They are best applied to children’s molars, but can also be applied to adults to halt early stages of decay. By coating the teeth with sealants, plaque can’t stick to them, therefore stopping decay.
Scaling and cleaning
Often called deep cleaning, dental scale and clean refers to the removal of all plaque and tartar build-up surrounding the teeth and below the gum line.
Your dentist removes the plaque and tartar build-up on the teeth using ultrasonic tools to knock off larger pieces of plaque. A handpiece sprays washes the debris away, leaving only the small deposits of plaque. Fine hand tools are used to remove and scrape all plaque.
