Preventative Dentistry

The dentist was so calm and reassuring and really cared that my teeth were cleaned and polished to perfection. Julie, who works at the practise is really helpful and makes you feel immediately at ease from the moment you walk in."

Dental Hygiene

Dental hygiene treatment is delivered by a specially trained dental hygienist or our dentist in West Byfleet who will help to remove any hard-to-reach plaque from your teeth that may have built up over time.

Here is what you can expect from a hygiene appointment:

 

  • Your teeth and gums will be assessed to determine the amount of plaque removal you will need and risk factors will be highlighted.

  • Your teeth will be professionally cleaned with special equipment and pastes. This process is also known as scaling and polishing. 

  • The hygienist’s role is to show you how to look after your teeth so that they remain free from plaque in the future. You will be advised on the best tooth brushing technique and given tips on flossing and using interdental brushes.


Dental hygiene at our practice also functions preventatively to treat gum disease and bad breath. If you have a bridge, denture, orthodontic treatment or a dental implant you will have specific hygiene needs that the hygienist will be able to assist you with.


It is recommended that you come in for regular hygiene appointments to ensure your mouth stays clean and healthy.

Children's Teeth

As dental professionals we believe in preventive dental care and encourage our patients to bring their children to the practice from an early age. Regular check-ups from a young age will ensure children don’t suffer from untreated dental decay with devastating effects to their growing dentition. There are a number of preventive treatments that our team can provide for children:

 

  • Fluoride applications are a safe and effective way to safeguard your child’s growing teeth from developing decay. The fluoride is painted onto the surface of the teeth, helping to mineralise them. 

  • Tooth-coloured fissure sealants are applied to the biting surfaces of children's teeth to prevent decay.

  • Studies have shown that the younger your child is when attending their first dental appointment, even if just for a check-up, the more likely they are to have a positive experience and to grow up unafraid of the dentist. Our team will take special care of your child to make them feel safe and cared for. 

  • Treating a child from a young age also allows the dentist to spot early signs of underbites, cross bites or overbites developing. As with most dental problems, the sooner you can start to treat it, the quicker it can be resolved.

 
Prevention is always better than cure, so call the practice today to make an appointment for your child.

 

Life Benefits

  • Healthy teeth and gums for life.

  • Reduced risk of developing tooth decay and reduced need for fillings.

  • No fears or phobias of the dentist.

Mouth Cancer Screening

Studies show that mouth cancer is on the increase and that early detection dramatically improves the chances of recovery. Late detection of mouth cancers has resulted in a higher proportion of deaths per number of cases than breast cancer, cervical cancer or skin melanoma, with about 2,700 deaths per year in the UK. Mouth cancer screening is a simple procedure performed at a dental practice that involves the following:

 

  • A detailed analysis of your oral health history to determine any risk factors that you might have.

  • A thorough examination of the outside of your mouth, head and neck by observation and touch.

  • A thorough internal examination of your mouth, including the inside of your cheeks and under your tongue.

  • Any inconclusive findings will be referred to a specialist consultant.


It is recommended that you come in for a screening on a yearly basis. If you have any sores, lumps or long-term ulcers in your mouth, no matter how small, it is very important that you come in to have it looked at. Because smoking is strongly linked with many forms of cancer and other dental problems, we always encourage our patients to quit smoking. An excellent source of information is the Mouth Cancer Foundation if you require any further information.

 

Life Benefits

  • Early detection of oral cancer dramatically improves the prognosis.

  • Sustained good oral health.

  • Sustained good general health.
