Preventive Dentistry

Prevention

We recommend regular dental examinations in order to prevent gum disease and tooth decay and also to spot early signs of oral cancer. Where required patients are given oral hygene instruction and a thorough scale and polish.
We offer fissure sealants to our child patients. This is a near invisible coating to the fissures, the nooks and crannies where the decay gets in. This protects the biting surfaces of the molar teeth from decay.

Mouthguards

These are important to protect the teeth in such sports as cricket, hockey, football, boxing and rugby. It is important to have a professionally made mouthguard that fits snugly and is easy to wear. Mouthguards are made from an impression of the teeth taken by your dentist. A dental laboratory will then construct the mouthguard in a soft cushoning rubber like material. It can be made to almost any colour and can even have a flag or logo moulded in.

Many people grind and clench their teeth whilst asleep or concentrating. This is known as bruxing, for many this does not cause a probem but for some it can lead to worn, unsightly teeth, broken crowns, broken teeth and sensitivity. A nightguard which is similar to a mouthguard but is thinner can be fitted to protect the teeth.

For some people bruxing triggers headaches and migraines and they have to take medication with side effects. See Headaches and migraines
