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.

Maintaining Your Dental Health

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.

Periodontal disease and tooth decay are the two biggest threats to dental health.

Preventative Dentistry

Did you know your dental health might affect your overall health?

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.

Why You Need Professional Care

You might brush and floss regularly. Unfortunately, it can be impossible for you to remove all the food, bacteria and tartar from below your gum line.

The practiced eye of a dentist or hygienist using specialized dental equipment is needed to detect and remove inflammatory buildup.

Symptoms You Should Investigate

Be sure to book a dental checkup and cleaning appointment if you have:

  • bad breath
  • red, tender, or bleeding gums
  • pain when chewing
  • sensitive teeth
  • a change in the way your teeth fit together
  • gums pulling away from your teeth
  • new lumps or lesions anywhere in your mouth
