Preventive Dentistry for the Whole Family
Think of your six-monthly family checkup as "routine maintenance" for your mouth. After all, your car gets a routine service, so why not your teeth? Our dentists do a thorough examination of teeth and gums, remove plaque that your toothbrush can't and detect problems early, before they become time-consuming and costly. We also keep you up-to-date with the latest techniques in oral hygiene to keep your & your family's smile at its best between checkups.
At the Ashwood Dental Practice, we believe in establishing good dental routines for the whole family for a lifetime of strong healthy teeth. Our dentists enjoy teaching children correct brushing and flossing techniques and can monitor their progress with regular checkups. We can see if your child's teeth are suitable for preventative treatments such as fissure sealants, which can protect the back teeth so that they may never need a filling. If your children play contact sports, it is vital that they have a professionally made, custom fitted mouthguard to minimise painful and sometimes costly tooth injuries.
