Preventative Solutions

Prevention of dental diseases lies at the heart of what we do.

The main dental diseases are dental decay and periodontal (gum) disease. In addition to these we are finding that tooth erosion is becoming an ever more prevalent cause of tooth tissue loss.

Regular examinations allow us the opportunity to assess which of our patients are at risk from these and to give advice which is relevant and specific to each individuals dental needs.

In addition to this we provide checks for oral cancer, dental infection, jaw joint assessments and identification of areas where patients oral hygiene techniques could be better. Our dentists work closely with our dental therapy staff to ensure every opportunity for the prevention of dental disease is taken.


We understand that patients can often feel anxious about receiving dental care.

When TLC is not enough, we have the facilities and training to offer sedation techniques to ease away any anxiety, enabling us to help with your dental needs.
