Prevention

We aim to help you keep your teeth for life. At every check up we screen patients for the presence of dental decay, gum problems, soft tissue problems - worrying ulcers, their oral hygiene efficacy, orthodontic problems, etc.


The TePe interdental brush is used to clean in between teeth. Turning the brush on insertion will help access. Used daily, it removes plaque and food debris where your usual brush cannot reach. For spaces at the back of the mouth, bend the brush in a slight curve but never at right angles ... ... this will help you access the more difficult-to-reach areas. A choice of 8 colour-coded sizes is available to help clean different sized spaces.


Use small circular movements with the brush held at 45 degrees to the tooth. Move systematically around the mouth. Remember to clean the inside surfaces ... ... and the biting surfaces. Do not forget behind the top and bottom teeth. A good technique will take 2 minutes.


Debris accumulates between the teeth. If not removed, bacteria will develop and plaque will form. Use the floss with a back and forth motion ... ... and with a vertical action until all the plaque is removed. Work the floss gently under the gum.

Oral hygiene instructions are reinforced regularly to keep up dental motivation. Diet advice in terms of minimising dental decay is provided. Composite sealant restorations for deeply grooved teeth are offered to protect these teeth from dental decay. Instruction on how to use an electric toothbrush are provided using a demonstration mouth model.
