Preventative Dental Care
At Metro Dental we strongly believe that prevention is better than cure. Preventive dentistry is the modern way of helping you keep a healthy mouth. It helps you to keep your teeth, and means you need to have less extensive dental treatment.
The main causes of tooth loss are tooth decay and gum disease. The better you prevent or manage these two problems, the more chance you will have of keeping your teeth for life.
The most effective way to prevent dental problems is to have regular dental examinations, so problems can be seen early and preventative or remedial advice can be given.
When the dental team and patient work together, we can help to prevent the need for treatment - especially fillings and extractions. The Metro Dental team may recommend a course of treatment to get your mouth into good condition, and then work out a ‘maintenance plan' to help you keep it that way.
