Preventive dentistry

The goal of preventive dentistry is to keep your mouth and teeth healthy. By regularly visiting the practice you can prevent problems before they ever get a chance to happen.

The two most common causes of people losing teeth are gum disease and decay and we can help to prevent both. You can find out more about gum disease prevention by clicking here.

We recommend regular visits to us to have a dental health check carried out, preventive therapy and receive a thorough cleaning of your teeth. We will then give you practical advice to ensure you are cleaning your teeth correctly.

Sometimes people can put off a hygienist appointment to ‘save money’ as their teeth ‘feel clean’. Imagine if missing that appointment led to the progression of dental disease that leads to tooth loss, or worse? It would seem like a very false economy. With our range of Calverley Dental health plans there’s no better way of maintaining your preventive programme.

Our hygienists at The Calverley Dental Practice do a lot more than ‘cleaning’ during your appointment. They remove the clear sticky plaque which contains bacteria that thrives on the sugars in your food. They look for signs of decay and can spot early signs of mouth cancer when the disease may be highly treatable. Your hygienist really is the proof of the old adage, prevention is better than cure!
