Preventive Care – keeping your teeth for life
While we gain a lot of satisfaction from helping our patients to enhance their smiles, the main focus of our practice is still very much on providing good general and preventive dental health care to patients of all ages.
Research has proved beyond doubt that when it comes to caring for your teeth and gums, preventive dentistry is by far the best way of avoiding any potential problems.
Our routine dental examinations are important, giving us the opportunity to check for any potential problems, including dental decay or erosion, gum disease and other issues such as mouth cancer.
Our hygienists play a key role in preventive dentistry, especially in helping to fight gum disease. This is a very common condition, and in its early stages symptoms can include sore, swollen or bleeding gums and bad breath. If left untreated it can eventually lead to tooth loss.
Our hygienists help by removing the bacteria which gather around and irritate the gums, and by advising you on the best ways of keeping your teeth and gums healthy.
