Preventative dentistry

Preventing dental accidents

Sports injuries

Unfortunatelyaccidents can damage teeth, often beyond repair. We cannot prevent all dental accidents, but we can predict when they are more likely to occur, such as when we participate in certain sports. In these instances, teeth can be protected to reduce the chance of injury by using Gum Shields.

Preventing tooth decay

Preventing tooth decay

Preventing tooth decay needs to start early
Tooth decay is caused by the bacteria in plaque digesting the sugar in your diet and converting this to acid. This then dissolves the tooth and forms a cavity which protects the bacteria and then decay quickly progresses. There are many ways that tooth decay can be reduced.


Gum disease

It is easy not to notice gum disease until it has progressed to a stage where it is difficult to treat as there is often no pain and the symptoms can be missed. It is for this reason that we monitor your gum health at every check-up, even in an apparently healthy looking mouth, so that we can deal with any problems early.


Teeth Straightening

We can nowalign front teeth more quickly than with traditional braces using the Cfast technique.

Why Cfast?

Fast - You will have straight from teeth in about six months.

Discreet - the wires and brackets are almost invisible.

Affordable - the short treatment time dramatically cuts the cost.
