Preventative Dental

Because prevention is better than a cure.

Karratha Dental Care offers a range of preventative dentistry treatments and services. Our dentists at Karratha Dental Care are focused on educating patients about good oral hygiene habits to help prevent oral health conditions.

What is preventative dentistry?

Preventative dentistry is the practice of providing and performing dental services and treatment to prevent oral health care issues at a precautionary level.

Because prevention is better than cure, it’s important for patients to care for their oral health by educating themselves about ways to avoid cavities, gum disease and infection.

A half-yearly oral hygiene appointment is recommended to identify any areas of concern and help stop an oral health condition in its tracks.

Our preventative dentistry includes:

Oral Hygiene

Appointments to check your teeth and gums.

Gum Disease
