Preventive dentistry

At Long Street Dental, we have a strong focus on preventive care - helping you and your family to avoid dental problems and maintain healthy teeth and gums.

We encourage all our patients to see our dentists regularly for routine examinations, so that if there are any potential problems we can spot them and treat them at an early stage.

Our hygiene team does a great job in helping to combat gum disease through practical oral healthcare advice and regular professional cleaning. Gum disease is very common and reasonably easy to keep under control, but if left untreated it can cause bad breath and eventually loss of teeth.

Our dental therapist also plays an important role. She too can carry out preventive treatment, and can also apply fissure sealants to help protect vulnerable back teeth. She can also carry out some of the less complex treatment on adults including simple fillings and extractions.
