Prevention

As the old saying goes, Prevention is better than a Cure, and this is very true with your mouth.

Regular check-ups can detect many problems at an early stage, and reduce or prevent the need for treatment which is complex and expensive.

Decay, gum disease, excessive wear on your teeth and very occasionally mouth cancers, can all be noticed and treated early if you have your teeth checked and X-rays taken. Little problems can turn into big ones if they are ignored, so don’t neglect to have your teeth checked and cleaned regularly. Many patients are pleasantly surprised to discover how easily and inexpensively their teeth can be cared for. Preventive treatments include:

  • Cleaning ( to prevent gum disease)
  • Fluoride treatments – try our Bubblegum flavour foam!
  • Fissure sealants- see our Kid’s page for more information
