Preventive dentistry

ice dental has a strong focus on preventive dentistry - helping you to have and maintain healthy teeth and gums, so that you can smile with confidence for life.

Our hygienists play a key role in helping you to prevent or combat gum disease, a common condition which can cause sore, swollen and bleeding gums, and bad breath. If left untreated, gum disease may eventually lead to tooth loss. Gum disease is also increasingly being linked to other serious health conditions including heart disease, diabetes and premature birth.

Regular dental check-up examinations enable us to carry out a thorough examination of your mouth and treat any potential problems at an early stage. We utilise the VELscope® Vx Enhanced Oral Assessment System to provide an oral cancer screening by helping to discover oral mucosal abnormalities that might otherwise have been overlooked. The technology is clinically approved and offers a great early esay of detecting any potential problems.

We also use intra-oral cameras that allow you to see first hand what is happening in your mouth so you can make informed treatment decisions, and the digital X-rays used exclusively at ice dental, are safer than traditional ones, and give much clearer images.
