Preventive dentistry is the practice of keeping your teeth and mouth healthy by caring for your oral health to avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and more. As prevention is better than the cure, it’s always best to regularly visit your dentist for checkups to prevent common dental issues from taking place, including gum disease, tooth sensitivity or bad breath.
To maintain optimal oral health, we do advise visits to your dentist at regular intervals to ensure that teeth are clean, strong, and white. Practising preventative dental hygiene can also save you money and improve your general health.
Preventative Dentistry Treatments
Our preventative dentistry treatments enable you to live a healthy and happy lifestyle by improving your oral health.
Your gums surround the teeth in the jaws and help to support them, so looking after your gums is just as important as looking after your teeth. Gum disease can start off as red, swollen or bleeding gums and could eventually lead to tooth loss if not treated at the right time.
To keep your mouth in tip-top shape we recommend you come in for regular hygiene appointments and dental check-ups.
If you find discomfort when eating ice cream or drinking hot drinks, you may be suffering from tooth sensitivity.
Teeth sensitivity can be a burden for many people and is usually caused by dental erosion, typically from brushing habits, grinding of the teeth, your diet, medical conditions or eating disorders.
It is always important to seek advice from a dental professional so the source of the problem can be identified and treated.
Dental hygiene should be maintained from any age, after all, the way you maintain your teeth now will have a massive impact on dental problems later on in life. Studies have also shown that the younger the age that you bring your child to the dental practice, the more likely they are to have a positive experience and grow up not to be afraid of the dentist.
Regular check-ups from a young age will ensure children won’t suffer from untreated dental decay and that they are aware of how to look after their own teeth, including brushing techniques, using mouthwash and flossing regularly.
As with most things, the sooner you can start to treat it, the quicker it can be resolved. It also means that if your child has problems with teeth alignment, orthodontics can be recommended rather than them suffering from other dental problems later on. Prevention is always better than cure so call the practice today to make an appointment for your child.
From a full scale removal to an air polish to remove stains and make your teeth whiter, your dental hygienist will ensure your teeth are clean and healthy during every appointment.
Dental hygiene treatment is delivered by a dental hygienist who will help to remove any plaque from your teeth that may have built up in certain areas while your teeth are professionally cleaned.
Your dental hygienist will also show you how to look after your teeth so they remain free from plaque. Dental hygiene at the dental practice also forms part of treating gum disease and bad breath.
Mouth Cancer Screening
As for smokers, mouth cancer is an increased risk, so it’s crucial to have regular mouth cancer screening to check for early signs. Dentists are the natural leaders in leading the fight against mouth cancer as they are typically the first people to spot the signs, even before you may experience any symptoms.
We also provide support with smoking cessation if you are looking to give up smoking. This is why we will give you all the support you need by offering advice and can help you maintain good oral health as a smoker.
