Preventative dentistry is dental care aimed at maintaining your oral health. Regular care can help stop more serious dental problems from developing. It also allows us to identify and treat any potential issues early. It is one of the many services we provide at Motcomb Street Dentist. This is important not only for your oral health, but also your general health as studies have shown that the two are linked.
During your initial visit we will carry out a thorough examination of your teeth and soft tissues. We may also need to take X-rays. Following this we will be able to tailor the frequency of your hygiene and routine examinations, depending on your needs.
Additionally, there are a number of ways that you can improve your oral health between visits. This includes brushing at least twice a day, flossing at least once a day and reducing the frequency of your sugar intake. During your hygienist appointments you will be guided in home care and the tools available to prevent gum disease and tooth decay.
