Our family-friendly practice has an ethos of preventive dentistry that extends to each and every one of our patients.

What is preventive dentistry?

Preventive dentistry is, very simply, the steps we take to ensure the long-term health of your teeth and overall oral health. We promote preventive dentistry because it can help reduce the likelihood of tooth decay and gum disease, which in turn can help prevent the loss of teeth and the need for intervention.

First and foremost, preventive dentistry starts at home.

The steps you take at home to look after your oral health are the most important steps in a preventive care routine and should include the following:

  • Brushing twice a day for two minutes with a fluoride toothpaste.
  • Flossing regularly.
  • Changing your toothbrush every three months.
  • Make sure to brush the tongue, where bacteria can develop, as well as the teeth.

If you would like to learn more about preventive dentistry or book any of our treatments at The Corner House Dental Practice, please contact us or call us on 01403 251 015.


What else can I do?

Other than the care you take at home, the most important aspect of preventive dentistry is visiting us regularly here at the practice. We recommend regular check-ups – anywhere from every three to 18 months, depending on the individual patient – and examinations so that we can keep a close eye on your overall oral health and spot any issues that might arise in the early stages.

We also recommend visiting one of our dedicated and highly skilled dental hygienists on a regular basis. Our hygienists will be able to remove any build-up of plaque or tartar that may have occurred, as well as give the teeth a thorough, professional clean. They’re also trained to spot signs of gum disease and can help you create an at-home care routine that works for you.
