While ‘Prevention is always better than cure’ may be an old saying, at Distinctive Dental Care we really believe it! Dr. Makepeace and his team believe that preventing dental problems is far better than getting your Dentist to treat them. This is the strong foundation upon which we base our practice.
Preventative care is beneficial to patients of all ages and should begin as early as possible. It is essential that all members of your family are educated in the techniques required to attain good dental health. Our Dental Hygienist, Sue-Marie Darazs provides each one of our patients with a careful individual assessment of their risk factors for dental disease, and a clear and simple explanation of the correct ways to maintain your teeth and gums in excellent health.
Our top preventative tips, which can help keep your teeth and gums healthy include;
Use a soft toothbrush with rounded bristles
Replace your toothbrush every three to four months
