Preventive care and oral hygiene – your first step to a healthy smile

A healthy smile can always be yours.  Regular visits to us will ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy and that you keep your beautiful smile.

At II0 dental we believe that early dental disease detection is critical.

Preventive dentistry is the modern way to reduce the amount of dental treatment needed to maintain a healthy smile.  The two major causes of tooth loss are decay and gum disease.  Regular visits to us will ensure early detection and prompt preventative treatment.

The joint efforts of the dentist, hygienist and patient can help to prevent the need for treatment.

Our dental hygienists are specially trained in prevention and treatment of gum disease and the continuing care of your teeth, restorations and gums.  Early detection of disease will save the need for complicated, lengthy and costly treatment.

Our hygienists appreciate that everyone is different and therefore advice, treatment and monitoring is specially tailored to your individual needs.

Fissure sealants are a way of preventing decay from starting in the deep grooves and fissures that occur naturally on the biting surfaces of teeth.  These surfaces are protected by the application of a tooth coloured resin sealant.  The sealant makes the tooth surface smoother and easier to clean and prevents decay from starting.  Fissure sealants are especially recommended if decay was present in the baby teeth.

If you don’t have any teeth you can also benefit from regular examinations as conditions such as mouth cancer and dental stomatitis can be spotted early.

At II0 dental oral cancer checks are carried out at each dental examination.  Regular monitoring is essential for continued dental health.
