Prevention is better than cure!

That’s why we place so much emphasis on preventative dentistry

 

We haven’t actually done it, but we think it’s a safe bet to say that if anyone was to conduct a national survey amongst UK adults and ask them why they visit their dentist, then we’d be pretty confident that a sizable percentage of people would say: “I only go to my dentist when I have a dental problem.” In our opinion, that approach is entirely wrong. Yes, like all dental practices, at Carisbrook we are qualified and more than capable of treating any dental problem that is likely to crop up. But, and it is a very big but, a major part of our approach to patients is Preventative Dentistry.

 

In other words, why should you wait until you need to have dental treatment … why not prevent it with our tried and trusted preventative procedures?

 

We believe that good dental practice begins with preventative dentistry. If we can help patients to look after the health of their teeth and gums so that they do not suffer from any unnecessary dental problems then we have done our job.

 

That’s why we recommend all our patients arrange regular examinations and check-ups so that our team of dentists and hygienists can keep a close eye on the health and condition of their teeth and gums. If we spot any potential problem we can deal with it there and then before it develops into something more serious … and possibly more painful and more difficult to correct.

 

The Carisbrook preventative dentistry programme covers six basic areas:

 

Hygiene

Our team of highly qualified hygienists will ensure that the health of your teeth and gums is regularly monitored. They will also pass on the very best dental hygiene advice to help you look after and protect your oral health. This includes professional cleaning advice on the best method of teeth brushing, flossing and tongue cleaning to help prevent future problems.

 

Tooth Decay

Our dental team will help you to take good care of your teeth, including cleaning advice, plus dietary assistance on what foods are and what are not good for your teeth. By keeping a close eye on the condition of your teeth we can help to prevent tooth decay problems.

 

Gum Disease

First of all our preventative dentistry advice will help you to protect the health of your gums. We can also help you to improve your gum health to ensure you don’t suffer gum disease unnecessarily.

 

Children

The Carisbrook preventative dentistry programme begins at a very early age when we encourage parents to bring their young children into our clinic so that they can get used to us and learn to trust us. This way we help to protect them against future fears and problems.

 

Bad Breath

It’s amazing just how many people suffer (and put up with) bad breath problems. As part of our preventative dentistry advice, we can help you to avoid this embarrassing problem, or if you do suffer from bad breath we can easily treat it.

 

Cancer Screening

As part of our routine dental examinations, we always check for signs of mouth and throat cancer. Catching the symptoms early can make a major difference. It’s all part of our preventative dentistry programme.

 

So now you see why at Carisbrook we always say: Prevention is better than cure! It’s why our preventative dentistry advice and assistance can be so valuable and so rewarding to the health of your teeth and gums … and sometimes much more.
