Preventative Dentistry

Toukley Dentists / Preventative Dentistry

Preventative care is a modern approach to dentistry. Preventative dentists aim to reduce the amount of dental treatment that you need by working together with you to maintain a healthy mouth. The hope is to avoid the traditional cycle of fillings and extractions. Preventative dentistry can help you to keep your own teeth for a lifetime.

The two main causes of tooth loss are dental decay and gum disease. With modern dental treatments and oral hygiene products, it is possible to prevent or at least substantially reduce these diseases in the mouth. Preventative dentistry can benefit anyone who still has some of their own teeth – it’s never too late to start.

Scaling and polishing, Fissure sealants and Mouthguards are some of the preventative measures our team will perform on your teeth and gums when they devise an individual plan of action for you.
