We want you to feel good about your teeth

Preventive dentistry is all about helping you maintain your health and deal with any issues before they turn into bigger ones. We are qualified professionals who provide dental care in a non-judgemental and supportive environment.
We focus on prevention to help you avoid tooth decay or diseases of your gums, tongue and mouth.
Inflammation of the gums and bone that surround your teeth can lead to dental disease.
Tartar and plaque buildup above and below the gum line can cause inflammation of the gums and bone surrounding your teeth.
In the early stage, it's called gingivitis. Gums can become swollen and red, and may bleed.
In its more serious form, it's called periodontitis. Gums can pull away from teeth, bone can be lost, and teeth may loosen or even fall out.
Studies show there might be links between dental disease and other disease such as diabetes, leukemia, oral cancer, pancreatic cancer, heart disease and kidney disease. Poor oral hygiene can also cause premature births and respiratory illness.
