Don’t we all know prevention is better than cure!!!
As part of our commitment to all our patients, a preventative regime is adopted at our surgery with great emphasis on motivation and home care.
This part of dentistry involves regular hygiene, home care, fluoride application, pit and fissure sealants.
There is substantial evidence to suggest that not all dental decay needs to be drilled and filled. Decay which is within the enamel of the tooth has the potential of reversing. Use of dental floss, good home care, fluoride mouthwash and dietary modifications can all help prevent the need for a filling.
Fissure sealants are a great way to ensure that deep grooves in the molar teeth of decay susceptible individuals remain disease free.
