Preventive dentistry is the modern way of reducing the amount of dental treatment necessary to maintain a healthy mouth and helps you to keep your teeth. The two major 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.The joint efforts of the dentist, therapist, hygienist, oral health educator and the patient, can help to prevent the need for treatment, and so avoid the traditional pattern of fillings and extractions.A course of treatment may be recommended to get your mouth into good condition, and a maintenance plan will be worked out to help you keep it that way.

We are firm believers in prevention being better than cure. Our hygienists are a vital and integral part of our preventative care programme. They contribute a great deal to your preventative dental care through providing advice on improving oral health. We stock a wide range of specifically selected dental products to work in conjunction with your daily preventative care regime. We have trained nursing staff who apply fluoride vanish to children's teeth, to prevent tooth decay. Please ask at reception for advice and current special offers
