DentistryThe aim of preventative dentistry is to help improve your long-term
oral health. Prevention means taking positive steps to help you avoid tooth decay and gum disease, rather than waiting for
problems to occur. Through modern preventative care, it is sometimes possible to reverse the very early stages of tooth decay,
thereby avoiding the need for a filling. This approach means where possible, treatment is kept to a minimum. When treatment
is required it will form part of your preventative care programme and your dentist will ensure that it is given the right
time and will last as long as possible.
