Preventative Care

Research has shown that dental disease, both tooth decay and gum disease, are largely preventable. Prevention of these problems requires knowledge and understanding by the individual. We are all genetically different but the disease processes are the same.

At every patients routine 'check-up' we take time to explain your individual risk factors and discuss your home maintenance and dietary habits that may cause you dental problems.

The huge array of dental cleaning and toothpaste options can be discussed. Understanding how to minimise your risk factors and optimise your home care will benefit you long term.
