Preventative Dentistry

Keep your smile healthy and happy with our preventative dentistry

At Denmead Dental, we firmly believe that prevention is better than cure and we want our patients to keep their teeth for life.

Booking routine examinations with us will help ensure that you are seen regularly, so we can carefully monitor your dental health. This will mean you get the best advice and we can help prevent any potential problems developing in the future.

All our clinicians undergo regular postgraduate training to ensure that the treatment options offered are the most up to date available. Our reception staff are also trained to give you the best advice on our range of electric toothbrushes.

Gum disease can cause bad breath, bleeding and, in the long term, tooth loss, which is why gum treatment is a priority at Denmead Dental. It can be difficult for you to spot gum disease yourself, as it is normally completely painless and subtle in its development; it occurs following years of poor oral hygiene, not months.

Unfortunately, some people (approximately 15% of the population) are particularly prone to more rapid and progressive gum disease. Therefore, for all people, regular monitoring is the most important thing in the quest to keep healthy teeth for life.

Our hygienists will help you with all the following:

  • Assessment and treatment of gum disease and advice on lifestyle issues relating to oral health
  • Oral hygiene instruction and advice on the best products for the patient’s individual needs
  • Professional removal of tartar and plaque from the teeth to give a fresh bright smile
  • Air polishing to remove even the most stubborn of stains caused by coffee or smoking
  • Fissure sealants – a protective layer of resin bonded to the biting surfaces of back teeth to prevent decay
Prevention is better than cure. With our advice on dental hygiene we will help you keep your teeth looking better for longer.
