Preventive dentistry is about protecting, maintaining, and promoting the overall oral wellbeing of the patient, so that we can minimise the need for treatment and intervention. In cases where treatment and intervention are needed, preventive dentistry always chooses the minimally-invasive option as a way to better maintain the natural tooth or teeth.
At Islington Smiles, preventive dentistry looks like twice yearly or yearly dental check-ups, as well as twice yearly or yearly dental hygiene appointments. During these appointments, our team can perform the vital health assessments that allow us to provide you with the highest level of care. We’ll be able to keep an eye on your overall health, offer advice and make recommendations for care at home, and diagnose any issues in the early stages allowing for minimally-invasive treatment options where needed.
Preventive care starts at home with a good, regular oral health routine you can stick to. We’ll be able to help you devise a regime that works for you, with our dentists and dental hygienists able to tailor it to your specific oral health needs and issues should you have any.
