General Dental and Preventive Services

Our motto “Prevention is better than cure”

Our goal is to educate you on ways you can prevent tooth decay and gum disease.Preventing these problems can help you to:

. Stay confident about the state of your oral health.

. Decrease the need for future dental care.

. Reduce the cost of future dental care.

In addition to daily brushing and flossing,we recommend that you visit your dentist every six months for a thorough examination and clean to help you maintain good dental health and hygiene and assist with early detection of any potential dental problems.

During your six monthly visit,we will usually perform a ‘scale and clean’to remove any tartar(calculus)from the tooth surface.Plaque builds on teeth and cannot be removed by brushing.If the plaque is not removed it forms tartar,which may cause tooth decay,gum disease or even lead to tooth loss.
