Preventative Dentistry is the modern way of reducing the amount of dental treatment necessary to maintain a healthy mouth. It helps you to keep your teeth. The two major causes of tooth loss are decay and gum disease. The better we prevent or deal with these two problems, the more chance people have of keeping their teeth for life.
One way to look at this is that the best defence is a good offence. Really making an effort to clean more thoroughly and avoid having excess sugar will keep your teeth healthier for longer.
We understand that there are reasons people sometimes do not visit their dentist when they should. That is why we endeavour to provide our patients with a calm and relaxing environment that does not judge. Instead, we will listen to your concerns and constructively point out where you may have gone wrong and offer solutions tailored to your needs.
The combined efforts of the dentist, the hygienist and the patient, can help to prevent the need for treatment, and so avoid the traditional pattern of fillings and extractions.
A course of treatment may be recommended to get your mouth into good condition, and a maintenance plan will be worked out to help you keep it that way.
