Preventative Dentistry

Children

Our Dentists aim to prevent dental disease rather than treat it at a later date.

Children

We are happy to see your child just a soon as they have developed their baby teeth. Getting your child gradually used to our environment will relax them if future treatment is required.

Fissure Sealant

Fissures are natural grooves/ valley shapes found on the biting surfaces of the back teeth. Permanant and baby teeth. Some people have 'deep' fissures meaning food/ bacteria gets stuck with greater ease causing a higher risk of decay. By 'sealing' these fissures we add a layer of material so food/debris does not accumulate preventing decay.

The Video: Fissure Sealant and fluoride applications (tooth coloured sealants) are applied to biting surfaces of teeth to help prevent decay.
