Everyone would love to know the magic formula for maintaining a healthy smile. But the truth is, it’s pretty simple—and probably nothing you haven’t heard before. Practise good oral hygiene at home by brushing and flossing, eat a healthy diet and visit your Adelaide, SA dentist twice each year for check-ups and cleans.
As a general dentist, Dr Narelle Van Velzen offers the dentistry your entire family needs to keep their teeth and gums healthy—all in one convenient location. Whether you need a routine check-up and clean or restorative treatment such as a tooth filling for a cavity or a dental crown for a broken tooth, or even if you would like to improve the look of your smile, our team can take care of you.
Good Oral Health Starts with Prevention
Every week it seems there is news of yet another study that shows a connection between oral health and systemic health. Many of these studies are now showing that poor oral health increases the risk of serious diseases, including diabetes, stroke, heart disease and more.
Many people are complacent about their oral health, assuming that since they brush and floss regularly, they are staying ahead of tooth decay and gum disease. Just as important as good home care, regular visits to the dentist for check-ups and cleans are crucial to maintaining good oral health—and preventing many dental issues from developing. We encourage patients to come to our Adelaide, SA dental clinic every six months.
The Importance of Restoring Damaged or Missing Teeth
Damaged or missing teeth can impact the way your smile looks, and it can also make it more difficult to chew and speak properly. We offer restorative dental procedures, including dental implants, dental crowns and dental bridges to restore your smile and ability to chew.
Not repairing a damaged tooth could mean the future holds a tooth extraction; not filling in the gap left by a missing tooth can put the health of your remaining teeth at risk.
Dr Van Velzen will talk to you about your options and help you make the best decision for your health, lifestyle and budget.
Getting a Smile You Love Through Cosmetic Dentistry
Sometimes healthy smiles need a boost, and with cosmetic dentistry, there are many options from which to choose. Depending on the goals for your smile, we can help improve the look of your smile with such treatments as teeth whitening and veneers.
Emergency Dentistry When You Need It
Although many dental emergencies can be avoided with good preventive care, sometimes dental emergencies happen. If you have a toothache, have suffered trauma or are experiencing pain when chewing, we welcome your call to our Adelaide, SA dental clinic. We will do our best to see you straightaway.
