What is preventative dentistry?

Preventative dentistry is the name for a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental staff to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions.

Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet. It is continued in the dental office by the efforts of your dentist and dental hygienist to promote, restore, and maintain your oral health.

Prevention also includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Fissure Sealants and Topical fluoride applications are also great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth against cavities.

Good Dental Habits Start At Home

Dental Exams: Regular examinations allow us to complete a focussed assessment of your teeth and gums. Each visit includes screenings for cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer. In time, even patients with the best oral hygiene may develop dental problems. Regular dental exams help to pinpoint and treat these problems early before they have time to jeopardize your dental and general health.

We believe that prevention is the key to maintaining optimum oral health, and that’s why our dentists and dental nurses undertake hours of extensive training – so we can provide our patients with an exceptional level of care. Our highly skilled team is well equipped to meet all of your preventative needs.

Fissure Sealants

Sometimes teeth can have deep pits or fissures causing food to trap in them. Such teeth can be vulnerable to cavities.

A fissure sealant can prevent a cavity from forming by sealing off the deep grooves in such teeth preventing food entrapment and making them easier to be cleaned, thereby preventing future cavities.


We understand that Sporting activities a part of everyday life for kids and sports professionals.
