General dentistry is uniquely oriented toward the prevention of diseases and damage.
General dentists help people prevent the development of oral diseases and can often detect general diseases.
If ignored, these eventually result in pain, lost time at work or school, and an approximate cost of billions of dollars each year.
At a routine visit to your Glen Waverley dentist, you will undergo a comprehensive examination of your teeth, gums, and surrounding oral structures, a professional cleaning, and a discussion about your overall dental well-being.
If your examination shows the presence of tooth decay, you will probably also need to get your tooth filled.

Take Care of your Teeth
Recent studies indicate that there is a link between oral health and general health.
Keeping your teeth and gums in their best condition is a simple yet important way to help maintain good overall health.
Healthy teeth are equally important as healthy gums.
It is therefore very important that we keep our teeth and gums healthy by:
- Proper brushing at least twice daily
- Flossing between teeth daily
- Regular visits to your Glen Waverley dentist to check, clean and remove plaque build-up
