Preventive Dentistry

predentative-dentistry‘Prevention is always better than cure’. We recommend our patients to have regular preventative check-ups to maintain optimal oral health. Regular dental checkups can save your oral hygiene from any minor infection to a major condition like oral cancer.

What Does Our Preventative Dentistry Include?

A dental check-up at Chapel Gate Dental involves a detailed assessment of your teeth to determine your susceptibility to cavities, cracks or signs of gum disease. We take dental x-rays to capture the areas of concern, followed by a meticulous cleaning and polishing of your teeth. Based on our findings, we advise you of any potential problems before they become major concerns. We will discuss the treatments options available for your situation and help you make a well-informed decision. Our dentists perform everything necessary to ensure that you receive the best dental care in our stress-free environment.

How Often Should I Visit The Dentist?

Preventive Dentistry

For most people, we recommend that you visit your dentist every 4-6 months. This interval is usually enough to diagnose oral health problems before they have a chance to progress. If you’re at higher risk of getting an oral health disease, we may recommend that you visit us every three or four months so we can keep a closer watch on your oral health. The more often you visit your dentist, the less chance there is that you’ll need an extensive dental procedure later on.

At Chapel Gate Dental, we believe that combining a good home dental care regime with regular check up is the most effective way to maintain your teeth and smile for the rest of your life. That’s why we give our patients personalised instructions on how to take care of their gums and teeth.
