Preventive Care
We strive to do preventative dentistry rather than addressing the problem once it gets bad. This approach means that where possible treatment is kept at a minimum or even eliminated.
Preventative Treatment Steps:
• Cleaning of teeth (Hygiene appointments & regular check-ups).
• Pit and fissure sealing to prevent tooth decay.
• Fluoride treatment to strengthen teeth and make them more resistant to tooth decay.
• Decay detection
• Preventative advice
• Oral Cancer screening
• We supply night guards / grinding guards to help reduce your grinding and TMJ troubles by helping to relax your jaw muscles, which in turn reduces muscle spasms and alleviating your headaches and stop you from grinding.
• We supply custom-fit mouth guards by Max Mouthguards. Impressions will be taken of your mouth, so that they can be made to fit precisely and comfortably to prevent injury. This will be done in 2 appointments of 10 minutes each, a week apart. Please see price list and colors on the Max Mouthguards website, and choose the best color to fit your personality ... have fun choosing your custom made mouthguard.
