Preventative Dentistry is an important part of keeping teeth and gums healthy and looking after your smile.

At Bassett Dental Practice, we believe prevention is better than cure. We recommend coming to see us every 6 months for a check-up and professional hygiene cleaning. From early childhood, regular dental check-ups reduce the need for later dental treatment and reduce anxiety.

Combined with daily brushing, preventive dentistry reduces the risk of cavities, tooth decay and gum disease. Together, we can optimise your oral health and enhance your natural smile.

Dental check-ups – your dentist will carefully examine your mouth and teeth and advise you on any signs of tooth decay, gum disease or other abnormalities. They also allow dentists to monitor your teeth closely especially with cases of toothwear, early decay, unhealthy gums.

Professional hygiene cleaning – Hygienists are a very important part of the dental team and are highly skilled in removing stubborn plaque, tartar, discolouration and tooth stains as well as bacteria from hard to reach areas.  They can help treat gum disease and help maintain previous dental treatment you may have had. Depending on your risk level seeing the hygienist 1-4 times per year is extremely beneficial in maintaining your oral health

Can I improve my dental health at home?

Yes. Effective daily brushing for two minutes twice a day, using fluoride toothpaste, using interdental brushes and floss, using a mouthwash at a separate time to your brushing are good ways to optimise oral health at home.

Reducing alcohol and tobacco, and eating a balanced diet, limiting sugary foods to mealtimes can also decrease the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
