Preventative Care

We believe prevention is better than cure when it comes to providing care for all of our patients. We believe that by teaching children from a young age, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, we can develop a better home care routine alongside regular dental check-ups and appropriate preventative care.

Here at Advance we feel that by using these preventative treatments we can help children to keep their teeth for the rest of their lives.

Fluoride application – for children with weakened enamel or demineralisation we can apply a high concentrated fluoride paste to teeth with high risk of caries. This can be applied every 3 months and is monitored for any further lesions or progression.

Fissure sealants – Fissure sealants are plastic coatings that are painted on to the grooves of the back teeth. The sealant forms a protective layer that keeps food and bacteria from getting stuck in the tiny grooves in the teeth and causing decay.
