General Dentistry for Children

Children require the same standard of regular dental care that adults do in order to keep their teeth healthy, strong and looking good. From the time their teeth erupt, it’s beneficial for children to see a dentist on a regular basis for dental check-ups and other general dentistry services as needed. Doing so can better ensure that the child’s overall oral health is maintained. Additionally, the process of initiating regular dental visits at an early age can set the stage for a lifetime of good oral health habits. It is almost never too early to get into the healthy habit of six-monthly dental visits.

The Importance of General Dentistry

At Shine Dental Group, we take general dentist procedures and treatments seriously due to the negative impact poor oral health can have on a person’s overall health. Oral conditions such as gum disease, missing teeth or oral pain can impact quality of life by affecting the way a person speaks, eats and socialises.

Since oral health problems can affect our physical, mental and social wellbeing, it is important to create and maintain the habit of regularly practicing good dental hygiene. By doing so, you can combat bad breath, tooth decay and gum disease. However, it is still vital to visit your dentist for general dentistry services at least twice a year. When providing general dentistry in Cranbourne, our dentist will carry out a check-up and remove all plaque and tartar that cannot be removed with a toothbrush. The only way to get rid of tartar is during a professional oral cleaning.

Why Choose Our General Dental Clinic?

At Shine Dental Group, we believe your dental health should be tailored to your own periodontal needs. With a professional dental examination, our general dentists will be able to understand the exact care your teeth require for outstanding oral health.

So we can accommodate your dental needs, we may take x-rays to allow our dentists to see the whole picture. Our aim is to prevent oral problems through early detection of decay and any other teeth or gum conditions that may not be seen with an examination.

If tooth decay is detected, white fillings may be used to restore your teeth and relieve any associated pain. However, if the damage is too significant and has reached the nerve, a root canal might be needed. With this in mind, it’s easy to see why regular dental check-ups at the dentist and good oral hygiene are important. Understanding the importance of oral health and its connection to overall health is key. With Shine Dental Group’s general dentistry services, you will be able to reach optimum dental health to benefit your overall health both in the short and long run.

Concerned about cost? Our clinic accepts all major health insurance funds. Check-ups, cleans and other associated general dentistry services are often subsidised or provided with “no-gaps” to members of private health insurance funds who have extras or ancillary cover.

During your first appointment, our dentist will conduct a thorough examination of your teeth, gums and other soft oral tissues, and perform a scale and clean of the teeth. If you have a particular concern about your teeth or oral health, we will treat it accordingly.

3Why do I need an x-ray?

X-ray examinations allow the dentist to examine the condition of teeth, roots, jaw placement and other facial features, as well as detect the exact location of problems that aren’t visible to the eye, such as impacted teeth, cavities, diseases, tumours and cysts.

Visiting your dentist every six months will allow them to remove any plaque or tartar build-up before it can get worse and cause serious oral health issues, such as gum disease and tooth decay.
