Exam & Prevention

Exam & Prevention

Preventive Dentistry is a combination of good dental hygiene with regular dental appointments that allow us to do our part in keeping your teeth and gums healthy.

We make sure there’s a focus on preventative dentistry, even though we offer there are a range of cosmetic treatments are on offer. Encouraging patients to attend regular visits improves oral hygiene, helps to maintain healthy teeth and gums and disease can be detected and treated before it becomes serious saving you money on dental treatment in the long term.
Screening for oral cancer is also included and demonstrates our holistic approach to oral health.

We also know that routine dental hygiene like cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease. Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we’re also concerned about your health.

Below is some general advice to reduce the risk of dental disease.

  • Brushing twice a day with a 1400ppm fluoride toothpaste
  • Spitting after brushing, and not rinsing
  • Use of an electric toothbrush with a rotating-oscillating motion
  • Using a flouridated mouthwash at a different time to brushing
  • Reduce the amount and frequency of sugar, with the aim of restricting sugar intake to meal times
  • Use of interdental cleaning, either flossing or interdental brushes
  • Avoiding tobacco products
  • Reducing alcohol intake
