Most people visit a dentist either when they are in pain or when they are looking for a radical change. Before a change in appearance it is essential that your oral care is looked after by means of regular check-ups and oral health maintenance. Our treatment plans can help prevent the development of serious dental problems that could require costly treatment.

Quick painless preventative treatments - fissure sealants and fluoride varnish
Fissure sealants can be done once your child’s permanent teeth have started to come through (usually at the age of about six or seven) to protect them from decay. This is where the chewing surfaces of the back teeth are covered with a special thin plastic coating to keep germs and food particles out of the grooves. The sealant can last for as long as 5 to 10 years.
Fluoride varnish can be applied to both baby teeth and adult teeth. The process involves painting a varnish containing high levels of fluoride onto the surface of the tooth every six months to prevent decay. It works by strengthening tooth enamel, making it more resistant to decay.
