Preventive dentistry is the practice of caring for your teeth to keep them healthy. This helps to avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and more.
There are many forms of preventive dentistry, such as daily brushing and dental cleanings. To maintain optimal oral health, the American Dental Association (ADA) recommends visits to the dentist at regular intervals determined by a dentist. These practices are designed to ensure that teeth are clean, strong, and white. Children should be taught proper oral hygiene at an early age.
We offer the following procedures in preventive dentistry.
The latest trend in dentistry is to remove as little of the natural tooth in order to achieve a certain goal. Examples of this treatment includes tooth fracture, congenitally misformed teeth, slight alignment problems and badly discoloured teeth. The fact that modern composites can be bonded directly to tooth enamel makes this possible,often without local anaesthetic.

Minimal invasive dentistry is especially popular with children. To protect the permanent teeth from decay, a procedure is done whereby a flowable composite is used to seal the pits and fissures of the permanent molars. This procedure is non invasive and has proven to be extremely effective in preventing decay.
With congenitally absent teeth in , minimally invasive dentistry is very successful to close the gap until an implant can be placed at a later stage.
Where a tooth is misshaped ,minimal invasive dentistry is the ideal way to correct this aesthetic problem in children and adults,mostly without the need for anaesthetics!!
If a tooth has to be removed ,because it cannot be restored, it is possible to replace this tooth as an immediate procedure through minimal invasive dentistry.
Fluoride has been known and proven to be effective in strengthening the enamel of the tooth, and so we offer fluoride treatments at least every time you come in for your regular cleanings. It is a simple and easy way to help prevent cavities. Just keep in mind that there are also other factors that encourage cavities to form, so you would still have to keep brushing and flossing at home, and visit us regularly in order to be cavity free!
Sealants, on the other hand, help prevent cavities by acting as a physical barrier on susceptible areas of the tooth to lessen the areas where bacteria can lodge on to and release their by-products that cause cavities. They are usually applied to newly erupted permanent teeth.
Tooth Rejuvenation Programme (TRP) is a holistic and personalized oral health programme designed to identify, prevent and restore the oral health. To learn more about you and your oral health TRP identifies and assess your age, diet, dental history, family history, risk factors for developing dental diseases and many other factors and prepare an oral health profile. TRP use saliva as one of the important diagnostic tool. Saliva diagnostic tests compile your overall assessment results for saliva, plaque, diet, fluoride and other factors for better oral health. All this information’s are recorded in a Risk Assessment Sheet and categorize each individual as High risk, Medium risk and Low risk. Based on the severity of the condition a personal prevention plan can be developed for you. Then your dentist corrects the existing oral health problems through minimum intervention and less painful dental procedure and advice the prevention procedure to keep you free from repeated occurrence of dental decay and other oral health diseases.
