To maintain your own teeth for life prevention of dental disease is paramount. Identifying and repairing decay at its earliest stages focuses more on preventive measures rather than reactive procedures. Our ideal solution is “minimum intervention with maximum interception”.
Regular check-ups are a must for successful early treatment. We will check your teeth, fillings, saliva and soft tissues. You will be advised on the most effective brushing and flossing techniques, and any dietary or lifestyle habits which could be affecting your teeth and sometimes your general health. One of our main goals is to educate all our patients on the importance of regular examinations so we can detect disease and small cavities and prevent them from becoming a bigger problem.
By identifying decay while it is still tiny, we can remove the decay and restore the tooth with a composite resin micro-restoration. This has been termed “micro-dentistry”. This allows the bulk of your tooth to be left intact and hence retain as much strength as possible. This is what we need to preserve your tooth for your lifetime!
