Preventative Dentistry

Prevention is the best cure – that is what we believe here at Bank Cottage Dental Practice and that is why we work hard to prevent dental problems before they occur or worsen.

We offer our patients a wide variety of services with the aim of catching dental issues as early as we can, helping you to care for your teeth now and in the future.

An important factor of preventative dentistry is the way you look after your teeth at home. As a minimum, we recommend the following steps:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice every day
  • Avoid sugary, acidic and sticky drinks and foods
  • Clean interdentally, ideally flossing, daily
  • Use an electric toothbrush
  • Use cleaning products recommended by your dentist or hygienist

If you are a smoker, as well as having detrimental effects on your general health, you are putting yourself at a higher risk of gum disease. Please speak to one of our team for smoking cessation advice.

Our team of hygienists and dentists will monitor your dental health by looking out for cavities, tooth erosion and signs of gum disease. Some of the preventative services we carry out include:

  • Examining and cleaning your teeth and gums
  • Removing plaque and calculus build-up
  • Taking x-rays for more detailed inspection
  • Applying fluoride treatments
  • Recommending dentist-approved products
  • Providing home care advice and ways to enhance your cleaning

To book your appointment with either a dentist or hygienist, please click here or call 01454 412053.
