350 of our patients have joined our preventative care plan PDC+.
But what is preventative care and how can it improve your oral health?
Why should I invest in preventative dental care?
Preventative care aims to help you keep your teeth for longer by dealing with decay and gum disease. Anyone with some of their own teeth will benefit from preventative dentistry. Even those without their own teeth can benefit, as problems in the mouth can be spotted before they develop.
What does preventative dental care involve?
It is process where you dental team will work together, to remove all the hard and soft plaque from your teeth. At Parkway this is normally done by our hygienists. This is important as removal of plaque can help to slow the progress of gum disease and other problems in the mouth.
You will also be taught the best way to care for your teeth and oral health. Our dental team are trained to show and advise you how to brush and look after your teeth. We do this through active demonstrations, verbal and written advice.
Children can also benefit from preventative health care, by having fluoride applied and if required fissure sealants applied. More information can be found here.
