We do believe that prevention is always better than cure. That’s why we highly recommend 6 monthly dental check-ups to detect any problems at an early stage. This is also to prevent loss of teeth or further damage which often requires extensive and costly repair work.
Any dental check-up will be followed by a scale and clean which removes stains, tartar and calculus from the teeth. Calculus is hardened soft plaque that can not be removed you’re your normal brushing.
If left untreated calculus can damage teeth potentially causing decay and gum disease and bone loss. Then we apply concentrated fluoride onto your teeth to make them more resistant to decaying and sensitivity.

Children require good attention to their primary teeth as they are just as important as their permanent teeth; they have to be cleaned regularly and filled if decayed as the nerve damage to a baby tooth can cause damage to the emerging permanent tooth. Early loss of a baby tooth will cause loss of space and a high chance of developing crooked teeth permanent teeth.
Our Hygienists and Dental therapists spend enough time teaching your children the best oral hygiene practices and we also monitor their teeth eruption as early intervention is crucial in cases where teeth do not come through in the right places.
Teenagers need special attention as cleaning the teeth is very important at this stage of their lives. Also it is the best time for us to start their Orthodontic treatment if teeth alignment becomes a problem.
Fissure sealing is very important at both stages of life (childhood and teenage hood). This is a purely preventive treatment, much cheaper than a filling in the future.
