Preventive dentistry is a contemporary method to decrease the amount of dental care needed to maintain a healthy mouth and preserve your teeth for life.

Why do you provide preventative dentistry?

Gum disease and decay are the leading causes of tooth loss. As a result, taking a proactive approach to managing these factors improves the possibility of prevention.

While it is the best way to manage children’s and young adults’ oral healthcare, it is also the best strategy for everyone – even those with artificial teeth, who can benefit from early detection of diseases including mouth cancer and denture stomatitis.

The joint efforts of the dentist, hygienist, and patient can help reduce the need for treatment and thereby avoid the historical pattern of fillings and extractions through suggested treatment and a maintenance plan.

What does preventative dentistry involve?

Diet & Lifestyle Advice

We will review your habits and give personalised suggestions to enhance both your oral and general health during your routine check-up.

Oral Health Advice

At each appointment, we will examine your gums for early indications of gum disease and, if required, discuss treatment options with you. Brushing, interdental aids, and mouthwash will all be included in our oral hygiene instruction.

Dental X-rays

Some types of tooth decay are visible to the naked eye, but not all. Our dental staff evaluates and takes digital x-rays regularly to detect decay and diseases between teeth. We can also examine the long-term bone structural support with x-rays. We have invested in the latest digital x-ray systems available to us, meaning instant results and the lowest dose possible is used.

Fluoride Varnish

Fluoride varnish is applied to teeth that are prone to cavities (tooth decay). Fluoride varnish is administered topically to difficult-to-brush regions. During childhood, when brushing practises are less than optimal, children’s teeth should be treated with topical fluoride. Most of our patients enjoy it, which is why this check-up component is so popular with kids!

Fissure Sealants

The biting surface of a molar has crevices and pits. Bacteria that cause deterioration can thrive in the presence of a tiny gap. Fissure sealants are used to fill these small gaps. Because youngsters have not yet had adequate fluoride exposure, preserving their permanent teeth with sealants is critical.
