As the name suggests preventative dentistry can help you protect your teeth and gums from extensive damage and periodontal diseases that can be painful to treat. Depending on the condition of your teeth and your oral hygiene, our dentists will advise different preventative measures. Listed below are some of the preventative dentistry services we provide:
Teeth cleaning: A regular tooth cleaning appointment is important for everyone to remove the plaque and bacteria that regular brushing cannot eliminate.
Scaling and root planing: Deep cleaning of your teeth below the gumline is necessary if you suffer from gum disease.
Dental sealants: Dental sealants are a thin coating of durable plastic that covers the surface of your molars. They protect your teeth from decay by acting as a barrier between the surface of your teeth and food particles.
Fluoride varnish: A layer of concentrated fluoride is applied onto the tooth surface to help in the remineralization process, to prevent decay, and to treat hypersensitivity. Only a small amount of fluoride is required during the treatment which sets rapidly.
