Preventative Dental Care

Thanks to good oral health habits, more adults are keeping their natural teeth their entire lives. The key is prevention which should focus on professional prophylaxis and fluoride treatment and daily brushing, flossing, tongue hygiene and regular dental check-ups to identify defects before they become major problems. Routine visits are encouraged so that a healthy mouth may be maintained. Early detection of disease can often require minimal intervention. Prevention is always the best course of treatment. After your initial consultation we can advise you as to what intervals your follow up visits should be booked.

Nitrous Oxide or happy gas

Stress, anxiety and even fear are all feelings which accompany many people to the dentist. If you have been putting off a visit, or are anxious about visiting the dentist then nitrous oxide might be for you. Nitrous oxide, otherwise known as ‘happy gas’, has been used in the dental industry for over 30 years and is a safe way to undergo dental treatment while feeling deeply relaxed. Nitrous Oxide can be used on both adults and children, so feel free to request this rather than putting off a visit to the dentist.

Wisdom teeth

Wisdom teeth found at the back of the mouth, can cause problems for some people and may need to be removed. If there isn’t enough space for them to grow at the back of your mouth they become ‘impacted’ wisdom teeth, causing pain, swelling and/or infection. Having your impacted wisdom teeth surgically removed (extracted) can relieve these symptoms. It may be possible for us to remove your wisdom teeth, or you may be referred to an oral surgeon.
