Preventative & Routine Dental Care

Check Up Dentistry

Check Ups

Regular check ups and hygiene visits are the bedrock of preventive care where any problems can be identified in their earliest of stages and prevented from progressing to a bigger issue down the line. Preventive, dietary and oral hygiene advice is monitored and reinforced at every stage to ensure that your teeth and gums remain in the optimum of health.

Hygienist Services

NL Clinic’s aim is to prevent and treat gum disease, which is now one of the leading causes of tooth loss in adults. By including regular professional teeth cleaning in your oral routine, you can help to prevent gum disease and tooth decay.

X-Rays

A dental x-ray may be required during a check up in order to evaluate full oral health above and below the gum line. An x-ray literally gives the dentist the full picture of whats going on in your mouth including jaw placement, roots and facial bone composition.. The process is safe and effective with on site digital imagery available instantly.

Preventive Resin Restorations (PRR)

A Preventive Resin Restoration (PRR) is a thin, resin coating applied to the chewing surface of molars, premolars and any deep grooves of teeth. More that 75% of dental decay begins in these deep grooves.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride varnish can be applied to both baby teeth and adult teeth by a dentist. The process involves painting a varnish containing high levels of fluoride in order to restore minerals, clean and prevent cavities forming.
