Preventitive Dentistry


Preventive care is an important part of your dental health care. Good oral health is recognized as important to the body as a whole, not just your mouth.

We recommend regular visits to examine the health of your teeth and gums. Early detection of tooth decay means that cavities can be restored with minimum tooth destruction before they lead to pain and discomfort.

Early detection and treatment of gum disease will prevent bad breath, reduce soreness and prevent the onset of more advanced, destructive periodontal disease which can lead to teeth becoming mobile and eventually lost.

Our hygienists will scale and polish teeth, monitor and treat areas of gums that are sore and bleeding , and give advice on correct brushing and oral hygiene.
