One of the most overlooked aspects of your overall health is oral health. As regular exercise is essential to maintaining and improving your health, so are regular visits to the dentist. By taking advantage of our general dentistry in Victoria, Dr. Mulholland and his team will be able to screen for any types or oral disease, cavities and other issues while helping to prevent future problems.
Even with consistent brushing and flossing, the buildup of plaque on your teeth – even in small amounts – is inevitable. Should the plaque be left untreated, it will become tartar, which is firmly attached to the surface of your teeth and is only removable with specialized dental instruments. The good news is that our team of dental hygienists will address these problems and provide a deep, thorough cleaning of your teeth.
Also known as a radiograph, a dental x-ray will help detect decay, tumors, cysts and bone loss while helping to determine the positions of both your teeth and their roots. Additionally, Dr. Mulholland will check your face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues and gums for signs of oral cancer.
One of the most effective ways to prevent and combat tooth decay is through the application of fluoride. During a fluoride treatment, the fluoride will reach the deep pits and fissures on the surfaces of your teeth as well as exposed and sensitive root surfaces.
