Preventative Dentistry

The goal of preventative dentistry is to keep your mouth, teeth and gums healthy.

Regular visits to our dental practice in Penryn means you can prevent problems, such as gum disease and decay that causes tooth loss, before they begin, helping you to have a beautiful smile for life.

As part of a preventative approach, we will give advice and recommend treatments to prevent dental disease. An integral part of this will be visits to see our dental hygienists. They will actively treat and give you advice on the daily cleaning of every surface of each tooth, which will ultimately help prevent periodontal disease and the possible loss of your teeth.

We understand that when it comes to the monthly budget, hygienist appointments are often at the bottom of the list. However, this preventative approach can actually be viewed as an investment in the future of your oral health and smile, as research shows this thorough cleaning, advice and problem detection really does reduce the need for future treatments, saving time and money.

If you would like to find out more about our preventative approach to dentistry, or book an appointment, please get in touch with the team.

You have always shown me great kindness and courtesy. Whenever I come in I am greeted in a friendly manner and I feel that I am a valued client. I feel that any treatment is well explained and my feelings respected. You send timely reminders and when I have to change appointments you work hard to offer a good alternative.

I have experienced the best dental care in your practice and it has allayed all the fears associated with early experiences and deep fillings without anaesthetic.
