Preventive Treatment

Preventive Dentistry: Seeing us for a regular, six monthly check-up will help to ensure that your smile is beautiful and healthy. Quick and painless, a routine check-up involves one of our friendly dentists checking your oral health, cleaning and scaling your teeth and giving you some tips on how to maintain your good dental health. From time to time the dentist might recommend additional preventive measures such as radiographs (x-rays), Fluoride treatment, or sealing the pits or cracks in a tooth (fissure sealing).

Radiographs are generally recommended every two years and allow us to detect the very earliest sign of decay. If treated straightaway these tiny problems can be corrected before they cause pain and become more difficult and costly to treat.
