Preventive dentistry is the modern approach to reducing the amount of dental treatment required to maintain a healthy mouth and help keep your teeth for life. At St Catherine's Dental Practice we champion 'Delivering Better Oral Health' a Report commissioned by the Department of Health that outlines the protocols dental practices should have in place to best ensure each and every patient has the opportunity to benefit from a happy, healthy smile.
Tooth loss primarily results from gum disease and decay.
Whilst it is the ideal way to manage the oral healthcare of children and young adults, it is the recommended approach for everyone - including people with false teeth who can benefit through the early identification of conditions like mouth cancer and denture stomatitis.
Through recommended treatment and a maintenance plan, the combined efforts of the dentist, hygienist and patient can help prevent the need for treatment and so avoid the historical pattern of fillings and extractions.
