Prevention

Prevention

We recognise the huge benefits our patients receive from a comprehensive preventative program. The objective of any good preventative program is to stop the development of oral diseases or to detect disease in its early stages, making treatment easier and the outcomes more predictable.

Regular examinations through visual inspections, digital x rays and palpation help detect early lesions and make treatment less invasive and more successful.  Our hygienist is dedicated to improving all our patients’ oral hygiene with regular 6 monthly prophylactic cleans, tailored oral hygiene instruction, dietary advice, protective sealants and patient education.

There is also a new wave of biological approaches to preventative dentistry. Supplements are used to help improve oral hygiene by introducing good bacteria to the mouth in the form of oral probiotics such as Bliss K12 and M18. Lozenges and pastes (such as Tooth Mousse) with specific ingredients to target decay causing bacteria or to help re-mineralise are a great way of looking after demineralising teeth or mouths with a high caries rate. We also have kits to check your genetic predisposition to periodontal disease and to help us identify kids with a potential high rate of caries.
