Preventative Dentistry


Preventative Dentistry

  • Overview

Helping you maintain good oral health is our main purpose. One aspect of preventive dentistry is the at-home dental practices that you do. It is important that you keep a good routine to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

For our part as your professional dental team, we are committed to educating you in achieving the oral health you deserve. It is also important to extend this to children so that at a young age, they will be guided in order to prevent different dental diseases. We also emphasize the importance of diet as food and drinks, especially with more sugar content can cause decay.

But as our guarantee, we also offer different treatments that can help avoid dental diseases such as cavities, gum disease and enamel wear or to catch them in their early and more treatable stages.

Oral Prophylaxis (Cleaning)

We offer you this basic procedure to provide your teeth with some cleaning that primarily prevents different periodontal diseases which are the main cause of adult tooth loss. As your aid in dental care, it is our duty to reduce your plaque build-up by performing this procedure as you need it.

Deep scaling

When we see signs of gingivitis such as bleeding of gums when brushing or even eating, we will clean your teeth by scaling and polishing them. Deep scaling involves removing plaque and tartar below the gum line and is normally performed using a local anaesthetic.

Pit and Fissure Sealants

We also call them sealants for gaps of pits and fissures. We recommend this treatment when a pit is created caused by two or more fissures that are joined with deep crevices. The tooth sealant is important because deeper pits can’t be reached when cleaning using a toothbrush and these areas are exposed to harmful bacteria and can cause acid to form.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride allows the enamel to be more resistant to breakdown against cavity-causing bacteria and slows them from forming. We suggest the treatment because fluoride is also known to replace minerals in the tooth structure which are lost by decay.

Fluoride Varnish

We mainly provide this dental procedure to children a maximum of 6 times from tooth eruption until the age of 3 ½ and a 60-day interval between procedures. It is non-toxic because it only uses a small amount and remains on the teeth until it is brushed off.

Space Maintainer/Regain

Space maintainers are recommended for children if they lose a tooth early or their baby tooth was extracted due to dental decay. Space maintainers can be removable or cemented in a child’s mouth which allows a space open to help the permanent tooth to be in place.
