Definitions of Dental Terminology

Cosmetic dentistry refers to the restoration or replacement of chipped, discoloured, deformed, missing or crooked teeth.  Cosmetic dental treatments can make substantial improvements to teeth, gums and bite, though not necessarily the function of your teeth.

Tooth decay is when the enamel of the tooth begins to decay and cause erosion from plaque and tartar on the teeth.

Cavities or dental caries are formed when a sticky layer of bacteria laden plaque attaches to the tooth enamel. The acid the bacteria produces weakens the enamel and allows cavities to form.

A routine dental checkup includes cleaning the teeth and identifying signs of infection, decay or other problems that can generally be fixed at the same visit.

Checkups should be booked every 6 months for a healthy mouth.

When the surface of a tooth needs to be repaired a dental filling will be used.  Fillings made from metal, alloy, porcelain or plastic are used to fill the tooth.

Dental prophylaxis is a detailed cleaning of your teeth.  A dental hygienist will professionally and thoroughly clean the surface of your teeth to remove plaque, calculus and stains

Dental sealants are a type of resin applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. Primarily sealants are applied to prevent dental caries, or cavities, forming on the surface of the back teeth.

A doctor who specialises in diagnosing, preventing and treating diseases and conditions of the mouth is called a Dentist or Dental Surgeon.

Gingivitis is an inflammation of the gum tissue.  Most commonly, gingivitis is the result of plaque, other infections in the mouth or poor oral hygiene.

Regular dental checkups are the cornerstone of preventative dentistry.  Including a dental appointment every six months for a checkup will help you maintain good oral health, prevent the spread of plaque, the formation of tartar and oral infections.

When plaque builds up on the surface of the teeth it calcifies into a hard surface called tartar.  Tartar is far harder to remove than plaque and will need to be professionally removed by a dentist or dental hygienist.

Tooth enamel is the outer layer of our teeth.  It protects the layer of dentin and dental pulp.  It is vital for good oral hygiene to ensure tooth enamel is cared for.

Brushing

If you’re like most people, you probably don’t give much thought to how you brush your teeth, beyond squeezing on some toothpaste and scrubbing back and forth.
