Preventive Care and Dental Examinations
Today, the most common dental diseases are completely preventable. At Devonshire House your dentist will help you achieve ideal oral health by developing an individual daily regime of home care that will look after your teeth, gums and general oral health.
With regular check-ups your dentist will ensure that your mouth is maintained in a stable and healthy condition. Detailed dental examinations can highlight the first signs of tooth decay or gum disease long before conventional drilling and filling is required. Then, often simple adjustments to the diet and cleaning technique are all that is required to tip the balance back in favour of continuing oral health.
If you have a tooth that has become damaged through decay it can usually be repaired with a filling, inlay or crown. The repairs are made to fit perfectly and they will be easy to maintain during your daily cleaning routine.
Our simple advice to all patients is, clean your teeth effectively every day and manage your diet to use sugar sensibly!
