Preventative Dentistry

We believe that prevention is better than curing, and we make a promise to maintain your oral health through a preventive approach.

This comes into our bi yearly check-ups with our staff. We have integrated many checks and education in our check up so you have the right information and knowledge to prevent any oral health problems.

Preventive Dentistry is the key to reducing the risk of gum disease, cavities, and tooth decay. The best way for your teeth to stay healthy is by going in regularly for a check-up with your dentist and a combination of at-home personal care practices.

We include in our check-ups:

Comprehensive Examination

Our team of oral health professionals will work in unison to conduct a comprehensive examination of your teeth, tissues and gums. Record taking involves a comprehensive oral mucosal examination (oral cancer check), a full charting of your existing oral condition, treatment planning, radiographs (x-rays) and photographs.


Radiographs or X-rays are an important diagnostic tool that assists our oral health professionals in determining the presence of decay or gum disease. The technology that is used at Our practice is considered low dose and produces 90% less radiation than traditional film X-rays.

Scale and Polish

As part of your hygiene maintenance appointment, our dentist’s, dental hygienist or oral health therapist will remove any plaque, hardened calcium build-up and surface staining. Your gums will also be assessed for forms of gum disease such as gingivitis and periodontitis. As part of our preventive strategy, our hygienist will offer you specific oral health education and instruction to help improve your oral health and reduce the chance of oral disease.

Fluoride treatment

Fluoride is a natural compound that is found in our environment. In the correct quantities, Fluoride has been shown to assist the prevention of decay by protecting the enamel against acid and helping to remineralise enamel to prevent permanent damage. At Our practice incorporate regular fluoride treatments as part of our preventive protocol to remineralise against decay and prevent sensitivity.

Oral Cancer Check

The prevalence of oral cancer has increased and risk factors include tobacco smoking, age, alcohol consumption and sun exposure. During an oral cancer check, our trained oral health professionals will look for any signs of changes within the soft tissues such as your lips, cheeks, tongue, palate and floor of the mouth. Any changes detected will be recorded and monitored. If healing has not occurred after two weeks, then further examination or referral will be given.
