Preventative Dentistry

Prevention is better than cure. Having examined your teeth, mouth and gums we will provide tailored advice to help you prevent tooth decay, gum disease and acid erosion of your teeth. As part of this preventative strategy we may ask you about your diet, alcohol consumption, medications and tobacco use.

Smoking is a risk factor for gum disease and oral cancer as well as staining your teeth and giving you bad breath. We can provide smoking cessation advice and put you in touch with local support services to help you quit.
