Preventative Dentistry

Preventative Dentistry

Preventative dentistry is uniquely oriented towards the prevention of disease and decay.

Science tells us of the important link between good oral health and good general health. Research shows us that poor gingival health is linked to diabetes and low birth weight babies.

Being dentally fit is a requirement for many patients before having many hospital procedures. In order for people to be well nourished they must be able to chew and therefore the importance of good dental and oral health should not be under estimated.

Here at Fairview Dental Clinic we are committed to helping you achieve and maintain good oral and general health.

Examinations performed by our highly qualified and experienced Dentists will include a full and thorough check not only of your teeth but also the associated gum, bone, temporomandibular joints, occlusion(bite) and surrounding structures. A mouth cancer screening will also check the above as well as head and neck nodes and glands.

Preventative treatments will include dietary advice, oral hygiene instruction, fissure sealants and any necessary radio-graphs.

Our hygienists play a very important role in preventing and treating gum (periodontal) disease.
