Over 80% of cavities occur inside pits and fissures on chewing surfaces where brushing cannot reach food left trapped after every meal or snack and saliva has no access to neutralise acid and re-mineralise to the tooth. A good dental hygiene routine will ensure your teeth and gums are rid of any daily build up of plaque and tartar as well as regular visits for teeth cleaning with our hygienists to remove plaque and tartar from those hard to reach places preventing cavities, gingivitis and gum disease.
We much prefer to prevent and protect rather than to treat which means less treatment costs for you over the long term.
We offer you the reassurance that during every routine appointment your hygienist will measure and check for any signs of gum disease. We also offer a number of screening techniques that can give you advance warning of future problems, such as saliva testing and plaque testing. We can also protect your teeth and gums from infection with fissure sealants, ozone treatment, and photo-activated (laser) disinfection.
