Preventative Care

Preventive dentistry is the modern way of reducing the amount of dental treatment necessary to maintain a healthy mouth.

Our aim is to work with you to prevent the need for treatment, and so avoid the traditional pattern of fillings and extractions. It is likely that a course of treatment will be recommended to get your mouth into excellent condition, and a plan worked out to help you keep it that way.

Our specially trained dental hygienist will work with the dentist to ensure the best dental health advice is given and will teach you the tools and techniques to look after your teeth and gums in between visits.

Regular professional cleaning combined with your home care will help keep your mouth healthy. A clean and healthy mouth will improve your appearance, help you to keep your teeth and give you fresh breath.

Children can benefit from having their teeth polished. The hygienist can also apply fluoride gels and solutions to help prevent tooth decay.
