Preventive Care

Mark Colwell GDC 62226 discussing treatment planning with a patient at Church Court Dental Practice

Preventive dental care is at the heart of everything we do at Church Court.

Our dentists, therapists, hygienists and oral health educators provide a full range of evidence-based care focussed on you, as an individual, keeping your mouth healthy and preventing problems.

Stopping problems before they start and monitoring changes in your oral health, at any age, can minimize the need for invasive and potentially expensive treatments….and the need for emergency patch-ups throughout a lifetime.

Preventive care includes a vast range of treatments and supporting monitoring which are performed by the whole team at Church Court.  They include fissure sealants, topical fluorides, oral hygiene instruction, professional scaling & polishing and dietary counselling. To find out more about how we monitor and treat your oral health please see our resources for patients.

Research also shows, for example, how periodontal disease (gum disease) can possibly be linked to coronary heart disease and strokes.

Read our blog on how to avoid dental disease and keep treatment to a minimum.

Healthy mouth, looking good…
