Oral Hygiene & Periodontal Care

At Preventive Dentistry we recommend regular 6 monthly visits to our Dental Hygienists to ensure stable health of teeth and gums and early detection of periodontal disease. 

Periodontal disease is the inflammation and infection of the gums. There are many contributing factors; the main cause is plaque, a thick sticky film of bacterial build up on the teeth. The disease has subtle symptoms and often goes unnoticed until pain occurs when teeth become infected and possibly loose.

Fissure Sealants

Fissures are very deep narrow grooves that naturally occur in the biting surfaces of teeth. We recommended the placement of polymer coatings that fill the fissures and protect the teeth from dental plaque & acids. 

Mouth Guards

We recommend all children & adults who play sports have a professionally fitted mouthguard this will ensure peace of mind, protecting your smile is very important to us.

Night Guards

We recommend the use of a custom-made night guard which protects your teeth while you sleep to prevent any damage from grinding & clenching. The guard can also keep your jaw in a more relaxed position to help reduce and prevent pain in the muscles of the jaw. People who grind their teeth are more likely to experience jaw pain, broken or worn teeth, and chronic pain in their teeth and jaw.
