Helping you keep your Smile 4 Life

Preventive Dentistry

Your oral health is an important part of your general health and well being




What is PreventativeDentistry?

Maintaining good oral hygiene practice at home is one of the most important thing you can do for your teeth and gums. Daily brushing with electric tooth brush, using dental floss and in between teeth brushes, along with regular visits to the dentist, will help protect your teeth and gums.

Healthy teeth will not only last much longer but will also help you with your overall wellbeing.

Early detection and intervention is at the core of preventive dentistry and at Smiles 4 Miles our team can help you avoid the need for more extensive procedures by treating early and guiding on regular maintenance.


Regular dental hygiene treatment

Here at Smiles 4 Miles we are committed to provide preventative treatment for all our patients:

  • Oral hygiene education tailored for every person. This includes care for your teeth and gums, information on good dietary habits, your risk factors that can compromise your general and oral health
  • Removal of hard deposits on your teeth (calculus also known as tartar build-up) and stains
  • Regular maintenance and preventative treatment
  • Gum examination to detect gum disease and provide treatment and ongoing care
  • Application of fissure sealants to prevent dental caries (decay) for young children

A fissure sealant is a restorative dental material applied to the tooth to protect it from decay usually the fissure (the rugged part of the tooth).
