Preventative Treatment

Regular Checkups

Regular dental ‘checkups’ will allow our dentists to do a thorough examination of your teeth and gums, and develop a management strategy for your individual needs


Professional application of fluoride


It may be suggested that you have special resin sealants placed on undecayed vulnerable tooth surfaces, to protect them from future decay.


It may be suggested that you have routine management of other dental problems, or gum health maintenance to ensure that you keep a good strong bone foundation for your teeth.

Dietary Advice

Dietary advice, such as suggesting ways to reduce the frequency of sugary or acidic foods or drinks consumed.

Home Care Advice

  • personal oral hygiene – brushing with fluoride toothpaste more often
  • recommendation of additional fluoride products like mouth rinses or gels available in your pharmacy or supermarket;
  • advice on chewing sugar-free gum

Dr Emma says:

While a filling may be necessary once the decay has progressed to a cavity, it is preferable at the early ‘white spot’ stage to try to arrest and reverse it. Fillings may need to be replaced after several years; very large fillings weaken the tooth structure and increase the risk of tooth fracture. If your dentist says, “You have early decay in some of your teeth. However, let’s not fill them, but rather try first to help you stop the decay progressing,” that’s why this is being suggested. Your teeth should last much longer and give you less trouble if the tooth structure can remain intact. Don’t allow early decay to progress to cavities which need filling. This can be avoided by:

  • Taking more care with your diet
  • Cleaning teeth thoroughly with fluoride toothpaste
  • Applying other preventive methods as recommended.
  • Remember – these days you should expect to keep your teeth for life!
