Preventive Dentistry

Preventive dentistry is the modern approach to reducing the amount of dental treatment required to maintain a healthy mouth and help keep your teeth for life.

The main cause of tooth loss is gum disease and decay. A proactive approach to the management of these causes therefore increases the opportunity for prevention.

Through recommended treatment and a maintenance plan, the combined efforts of the dentist, hygienist and patient can help prevent the need for treatment and so avoid unnecessary fillings and extractions.
