Prevention

At Maven Dental Clare, formerly Clare Dental, we encourage the preventative approach to your oral health to maximise the lifespan of your teeth.

Our qualified Dental Hygienists remove calculus deposits and stains from teeth, educate patients on how to practice good oral hygiene, apply decay preventing agents and work with the dentist to ensure the best possible outcome for the patient. They examine patients’ teeth and gums, recording the presence of diseases or abnormalities and are also trained to take x-rays and impressions of the mouth.

Dental disease can be prevented by a combination of regular visits to the hygienist and a thorough in home cleaning regime. This will also reduce the risk of having to have large amounts of costly dental treatment.

Dental Hygienists specialise in sealing the deep pits in children’s teeth to prevent early decay. If you have children that has not had this done or would like some more information, then please do not hesitate to contact us.

Your visit to the Dental Hygienist should be pain free. If you experience any discomfort, just let your hygienist know and they will be able to change their techniques or applications to make the experience more enjoyable for you.

Hygiene and active maintenance visits are for everyone, no matter how young or old you may be. Once you have visited your Hygienist they will let you know how often you need to be seen. (eg every3, 6 or 12 months)
