Prevention is key when it comes to oral health.
Preventative dentistry is more than just routine check-ups at our practice in Chatham. At Smil, we take a proactive approach to maintaining excellent oral health and preventing future dental issues.
Preventative dentistry is a combination of professional dental care and personal oral hygiene practices, all aimed at keeping your mouth, teeth and gums healthy. Instead of waiting for oral health issues to arise and then treating them, we focus on stopping problems before they start. This approach can include regular check-ups, professional cleanings and advice on maintaining proper oral hygiene at home.
We aim to teach our patients about healthy lifestyle choices and their impact on dental health. By emphasising prevention, our team can identify and address issues early, reducing the need for extensive treatments later on.
Preventative dental treatments and healthy approaches recommended by our team may include:
Personalised treatment plans
Our experienced clinicians in Chatham will provide you with tailored advice on maintaining a tooth-friendly diet and lifestyle. We can guide you on food choices and habits that promote healthy teeth and gums.
Oral hygiene instruction
Beyond brushing and flossing techniques, we can educate you on effective methods to keep your mouth clean, prevent plaque buildup and reduce the risk of gum disease.
Cutting edge technology
We utilise the latest digital X-ray technology to detect cavities and other dental issues that may not be visible during a regular examination,
At Smil, we are pleased to provide the application of fluoride varnish, which helps to strengthen tooth enamel and make it more resistant to tooth decay. This is an excellent preventative treatment service that is available at our Chatham practice.
There are many benefits to our preventative dental treatments, including:
Early detection. Regular check-ups at our Chatham practice help to identify potential issues like cavities, gum disease or oral cancer at their early stages.
Improved oral health. Preventative measures, such as professional cleanings and guidance on oral health, contribute to healthier teeth and gums.
Cost savings. Preventative dentistry is typically cheaper than treating more advanced oral health issues. By investing in regular check-ups and cleanings, you could avoid more costly procedures further down the line.
Overall health impact. Your oral health is interconnected with your overall health. Maintaining good oral hygiene can positively impact your overall well-being.
Your smile matters. Investing in our preventative dental treatments is investing in your long-term dental health and overall well-being. Our team is committed to providing personalised care and guidance to safeguard your smile for years to come.
