Periodic Examinations, Hygiene Therapy and Sealants
Routine preventative dentistry needs to be a lifelong commitment of both the patient and dental staff. Through regularly scheduled preventative treatment many expensive and time consuming procedures can be avoided.
Preventative dentistry includes periodic examinations, hygiene therapy (cleanings), sealants and fluoride treatments.

The vast majority of teeth that are lost by adults could have been prevented. Approximately 75% of teeth are lost through gum disease and the rest through tooth decay, both of which are preventable. Our hygienists, have both trained full time for two years at dental school and specialize in the prevention of periodontal (gum) disease. Our dentist screens the patient for periodontal disease and makes them aware of the findings which often involves one or more hygiene appointments.
"Teeth for Life" is the aim of modern preventive dentistry. These days when teeth are lost, over 90% of the time it is due to gum problems.
The latest micro-scan and x-ray technology to aid diagnosis are available at the practice.
