Our team of dental professionals are dedicated to taking a preventive approach to your care to help you maintain a happy, healthy mouth for life. We believe it’s best to keep a close eye on your oral health so we can spot any problems before they develop into something far more costly, complicated and time consuming to treat.
We help maintain your dental health by checking for problems such as:
- Dental decay
- Tooth wear’
- Gum disease
- Oral cancer
- X-rays will be taken if indicated
- Jaw joint, muscles and neck glands check
- We check for defective/failing fillings
Our dentists work in conjunction with our hygienists who offer plenty of useful advice and can give your teeth a plaque-busting ‘scale and polish’ to help reduce the likelihood of developing gum disease. They can also examine your gums for early signs of this common, but potentially tooth threatening, disease.
You also need to get involved in this preventive process too by keeping up an effective oral hygiene routine with regular brushing and interdental cleaning. In addition, limiting your consumption of sugar-filled snacks and drinks can help reduce the effects of the harmful acid produced when the bacteria in plaque reacts with sugar.
