Our family dentists place a great deal of emphasis on preventative dentistry so you and your family can all have optimal oral health for the long term.

Regular maintenance of your teeth and gums will avoid, or at least minimise, major dental health problems such as gum disease for you – and help you be proud of your smile. Preventive dentistry is of major importance, as research has also found that gum disease is linked to other unhealthy conditions such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes and digestive

One of the most important reasons for coming regularly is the removal of the bacterial colonies (Plaque) from between the teeth and in the spaces (pockets) between the teeth and gums. This is important for three reasons.

  • 80% of bad breath comes from the bacterial colonies.
  • If we don’t remove this plaque, the bacteria will cause the loss of teeth due to periodontal (jawbone) disease. (This is how most teeth are lost).
  • Researchers have found that people with periodontal disease are almost twice as likely to suffer from coronary artery disease as those without periodontal disease. Gum disease cannot actually be cured because the bacterial colonies are always there and growing, but we can prevent the damage by effective and regular Active Maintenance. For all these reasons we are determined to provide you with the very best level of dental care to keep gum disease at bay.
