Our Dentists aim to prevent dental disease rather than treat it at a later date.
Fluoride applications and fissure sealants (tooth coloured sealants) are applied to biting surfaces of children’s teeth to prevent decay.
• Routine examinations
• Hygiene therapy treatment as well as professional cleaning and polishing.
A professional clean will involve your general dentist removing any plaque and tartar that has built up. Which is commonly known as a “scale and polish”. Build up is usually the result of poor oral hygiene or an unhealthy diet and will need to be addressed. You will be shown better brushing techniques, advice on a more suitable toothbrush and how to floss correctly to remove plaque yourself. Which will enable you to maintain your oral health at a good level and hopefully reduce the need to visit the dentist at more regular intervals.
Preventive treatment is only successful when the patient works effectively alongside their general dentist.
