Preventive dentistry is the modern way of helping you keep a healthy mouth. This helps to avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and more which helps you to keep your teeth, and means you need to have less dental treatment.
Your dental team at LDC will first check your teeth and gums, and talk to you about any treatment you need. The main aim is to help you get your mouth really healthy. In a healthy mouth it is unlikely that decay or gum disease will continue to be a problem.
When the dental team and patient work together, this can help to prevent the need for treatment – especially fillings and extractions. The LDC dental team may recommend a course of treatment to get your mouth into good condition, and then work out a ‘maintenance plan’ to help you keep it that way.
