Preventative DentistryPreventative services

Prevention is at the centre of all treatment provided at Neston Dental Care. Our aim is to ensure you have a healthy mouth and keep your teeth for life.

We believe that early disease detection is vital in order for our patients to maintain optimum oral health. We encourage regular dental examinations which enable us to minimise treatment and maintenance procedures.

Everyone of our patients  is unique. Your wishes are paramount and all treatment options will be discussed thoroughly to ensure that your needs are met.

Our Oral Health Educator will give dietary advice and guidance on the toothbrushing techniques needed to secure a healthy mouth.

Examination

On your arrival at the Practice, we will ask you to update your medical history and discuss any concerns you may have about your teeth and gums. We will then thoroughly examine the health of your mouth, including teeth, gums, tongue and other soft tissues.
X-rays will normally be taken to check for any problems with your existing fillings, teeth and their supporting tissues, which cannot be seen by a visual examination.

This is what we do at our examinations:

  • Update medical history
  • Ask you about any concerns you may have
  • Oral Cancer screening of your soft tissues (Tongue/Lips/Cheeks)
  • Check the health of the teeth
  • Check the health of any restorations
  • Check the health of the gums
  • Plaque check
  • X-rays to detect any issues under, inside and between the teeth, that may not be visible to the eye
  • Treatment plan and dental health advice when necessary

Hygiene

Our hygienist can completely remove superficial stains using a modern power jet to leave your teeth perfectly clean. Hygienists are specifically trained to treat gum disease and educate our patients on oral hygiene techniques, individually tailored to specific needs.

Fissure sealants

To prevent tooth decay. Sealants are a safe and painless way of protecting your teeth from decay. A sealant forms a hard shield that keeps food and bacteria from getting into the tiny grooves in the teeth and causing decay.

Mouthguards

Mouthguards can cushion a blow to the face minimising the risk of broken teeth and injuries to the soft tissues of the mouth. Anyone who participates in a sport that carries a significant risk of injury should wear a professionally made mouth protector.

Oral Cancer

Mouth or oral cancer can often be spotted in it’s early stages by your dentist during a thorough mouth examination. If mouth cancer is recognised early, then the chances of a cure are good. Anyone can be affected by mouth cancer whether they have their own teeth or not.
