Preventing Dental Issues

Preventative dental care is usually handled with biyearly checkups, which will reduce any need for more complex dental work in the future. Our team will tailor your preventative dentistry plan to your requirements.

These visits may include digital X-rays, evaluating the teeth and gums for any other necessary work, scale and polish, hygiene advice, fluoride treatments, fissure sealants and the fitting of grinding splints.

What are fissure sealants used for?

Teeth that have grooves or deep fissures are more likely to be affected by decay. Bacteria can easily enter the small gaps, and they’re difficult to clean by brushing. A simple solution is a plastic coating on the back teeth that will prevent cavities. It’s an easy, pain-free process that involves painting on the sealant, then setting it with a specialised light. It’s then ready for you to eat and drink as usual.

What’s involved in a scale and polish?

When you have a scale and polish, it starts with a thorough cleaning that prevents gum disease and the weakening of tooth structure. Built-up plaque is removed, since this type of bacteria can wear away the tooth’s surface, resulting in bad breath and cavities. If left untreated, plaque will form into calculus, a hard deposit that’s challenging to remove, which can lead to gingivitis and periodontal disease.

We’ll use vibration to remove calculus, leaving the tooth surface smooth for a smile you’d love to show off.

Do I need a grinding splint?

The grinding or clenching of teeth is called bruxism, which can erode the enamel of your teeth. It may result in jaw pain, headaches and tooth sensitivity, as well as affect the look of your teeth. Commonly, bruxism occurs during sleeping hours. A custom-created mouthguard can be worn at night to protect your teeth.
