What is Preventative Dental Care?

At Albany Place Dental Practice we believe in practicing proactive preventative dental care. This means that most of the treatments that we do are done in order to prevent dentistry disorders and prevent the need for further treatment. Preventative dental care is thus about keeping your teeth and gums healthy to avoid cavities, enamel wear and gum disease.

How We Practice Preventative Care

  • Regular Check-Ups

At your regular check-up, we will examine your teeth, gums, and mouth for general health and any symptoms of disease. We may recommend that an x-ray is taken to help us to check for dental problems that are not visible.Regular check-ups will ensure that your teeth and gums remain healthy and clean. Check-ups also ensure that any dental problems are uncovered early – when treatment is usually straightforward and relatively low in cost.
  • Teeth Cleaning
    One of our friendly hygienists will perform a thorough cleaning of your teeth and gums to remove plaque buildup, tartar and stains. By getting your teeth cleaned on a regular basis, you can help to prevent periodontal (gum) disease that can cause significant dental problems, including tooth loss, if left undetected and untreated.We also encourage patients to a look after their teeth every day – through regular tooth brushing, flossing, and a healthy, balanced diet.

Dental Health Care Plans

Most dental health care plans completely cover the cost of one or more preventative check-ups at our practice. If you have private health care cover including dental it may be worth your while to see if this applies to you and each of your family members.
