We want you to keep your teeth for life
So we work with you providing guidance, encouragement and preventative therapies.
We monitor the health of your gums very closely, minimising the chances of gum disease occurring from an early age; it also helps us manage advanced cases more effectively. We do not accept that people become “long in the tooth” as they grow older. The aim is to stop this largely preventable disease occurring from the outset.
Tooth decay is an infectious disease caused by microbes (often bacteria). We recognise that “filling holes” does not eliminate the disease - in the same way as cutting a lawn does not stop grass from growing. Preventing tooth decay is a critical part of the care of your mouth.
We assess the underlying causes of disease very carefully. We work out how frequently screens such as dental check-ups and routine dental x-rays should be offered, as well as determining the optimal day-to-day preventative regime to minimise any risks.
Prevention can help save teeth that would otherwise need to be removed. Saving teeth can simplify treatments, reducing the need for more complex work such as bridgework or implants.
Healthy teeth and gums look great, feel good and can help you smile with confidence.
