Preventive dentistry is based on the idea of preventing disease rather than treating it. This is the philosophy of our entire team at Church St Dental.
The success of preventive dentistry is based on regular maintenance.
It is recommended to have your teeth checked and cleaned every 6 months. This allows for early detection of small issues, so that they can be addressed before becoming larger, more complicated problems. Thorough examination of teeth usually involves the periodic taking of dental x-rays to check on areas of the mouth that cannot be seen just by looking.
