What is preventive dentistry?
Preventive dentistry is the modern way of helping you keep a healthy mouth. It helps you to keep your teeth, and means you need to have less dental treatment. The two main causes of tooth loss are decay and gum disease. The better we prevent or deal with these two problems, the more chance people have of keeping their teeth for life.
Our dentists and hygienists will work with you to prevent the need for treatment and avoid fillings and extractions. We may also recommend a course of treatment to get your mouth into good condition, and advise on ongoing healthcare to help you keep it that way.
