Preventive Dentistry

At Picnic Point Dental Clinic we provide preventive treatments for all family members. What this means is we aim to provide treatments that reduce the risk of dental disease. Along with dental screening we offer dietary and oral hygiene advice and believe that fluoride application should be an integral part of your maintenance program.

Our teeth and gums are in an environment that is constantly changing and quite often we are unaware of a problem developing because it is hidden from site and doesn’t hurt.

We offer preventive programs for all ages, as well as tailored packages for teeth whitening.
Dental hygiene is about taking care of your teeth and mouth through daily teeth brushing and flossing as well as good nutrition and hydration. Regular trips to the dentist ensure long term health of your teeth and gums and gives you the tools to develop excellent habits. Bleeding gums are the first sign of gum disease, so seeing a dentist regularly gives you the peace of mind that any issues can be spotted and addressed early on.

You will have a comprehensive assessment of your gums as well as a thorough cleaning. The dentist will discuss with you any of the findings made and with your consent can refer you for any further treatment required.
It’s a gentle way to ease yourself into good habits which you need to maintain healthy teeth for life. We consider your dental hygiene appointments to be as important as your dental examination and screening.

  • Root canal treatment – The use of laser dentistry for root canal treatment means that any canal shaping and cleaning is carried out using less invasive techniques. For dental patients in Panania, NSW this means less discomfort and post-operative swelling.  
  • Treating gummy smiles – Gum contouring using laser dentistry means that patients in Panania NSW receive treatment that is virtually pain-free. We utilise a soft-tissue diode laser to remove any excess gum tissue, but at the same time, it reseals the area. This means a bloodless procedure where healing is quick – usually within 1-2 days.
