Preventative Care

We firmly believe that prevention is better than cure, and we know that long-term dental management feels a whole lot better than emergency repairs.

How do we help?

We make it easy for you to fit in a visit, from booking appointments to parking.

We place huge importance on making sure you are physically comfortable and that your mind is at ease. We have plush recliners and in-chair entertainment to help you relax, and our dentists and hygienists are respectful and understanding of each customer’s individual situation and needs. We will always give you clear explanations about your procedure and will be happy to answer any questions you may have at any stage to assure you that you are in safe hands.

Our dedicated team makes sure we find out a lot about you and your teeth as it helps us do our work better. This approach provides the best for our patients—not just a quick fix but lifelong improved dental outcomes.

Regular check-ups and cleans are one of the best preventive dentistry techniques, as we will be able to monitor your teeth and gums and make sure they are being maintained and cared for to the best of your and our ability. We also recommend periodic x-rays every few years to check that everything under your gums is in good condition too.

Tooth decay prevention

We want to help you prevent tooth decay before it starts. Here’s how:

  • Brush your teeth twice a day, after breakfast and before going to bed.
  • Use fluoride toothpaste.
  • Floss twice a day.
  • See your dentist for regular check-ups so that any early problems can be treated before major, expensive treatments are needed.
  • Don’t snack before bedtime. Food left on the teeth overnight is more likely to cause cavities.
  • Avoid foods and drinks that are high in sugar, especially soft drinks, sweet cereal, desserts, and sticky foods.

Gum disease prevention

As with preventing tooth decay, you need regular check-ups. At home, you need to brush and floss at least twice a day to reduce the build-up of plaque, which is usually the cause of gum disease. Rinsing your mouth with a mouthwash that’s used to treat gingivitis can be helpful, and try to avoid sugary foods and drinks.


If you’re regularly involved in playing a sport, custom-fitted mouthguards can reduce the risk of your teeth being knocked out.
