Preventative Dentistry

The preventative approach is a very pragmatic approach to dentistry and is one of the core principals of good oral health. This modern approach to dentistry reduces the amount of dental treatment required to maintain a healthy mouth and helps keep your own teeth for a lifetime.
Tooth loss primarily results from decay and gum disease. A proactive approach to the management of these causes therefore increases the opportunity for prevention.

Our practice is trained to detect the early signs of disease using the latest technology, skills, and knowledge. Through recommended treatment and a maintenance plan, the combined efforts of the dentist, patient and hygienist can help prevent the need for treatment and so avoid the historical pattern of fillings and extractions.
