The goal of preventive dentistry is to keep your mouth and teeth healthy. By regularly visiting the Practice you can prevent problems before they ever get a chance to happen.
The two most common causes of people losing teeth are gum disease and decay and we can help to prevent both. You can find out more about gum disease prevention by clicking here.

We recommend visiting us every six months to have a dental health check carried out and receive a thorough cleaning of your teeth with one of our Hygienists. We will then give you practical advice to ensure you are cleaning your teeth correctly and on how to prevent decay.

Sometimes people can put off a Hygienist appointment to ‘save money’ as their teeth ‘feel clean’. Imagine if missing that appointment leads to a tooth needing a root canal treatment, crown or both? It would seem like a very false economy.

The Hygienists at Penryn also do a lot more during your appointment. They remove the clear sticky plaque which contains bacteria that thrives on the sugars in your food. They also look for traces of decay and can spot early signs of mouth cancer when the disease may be highly treatable. Your Hygienist really is the proof of the old adage, prevention is better than cure!

Altogether a really good service from the minute you walk in the door.  Great staff, excellent dentist and hygienist and really nice environment.

During my weeks work experience with Penryn Dental Surgery I was able to explore a wide range of dentistry which I not only found extremely interesting but very educational as I was shown how different procedures work.  Thank you very much for the opportunity!

I consider  the hygienist  to be the best hygienist who has treated me. She was very professional and took great care in getting the best outcome  My sister who was visiting from the USA required an emergency appointment and was seen promptly. She was very impressed with not only the standard of care but also the practice environment in comparison to her experience in the USA. She was surprised also at the low cost of her treatment.
