If it’s been a while since you visited us for a routine dentist or hygienist appointment, please don’t worry. We can deliver the treatment you need and create a tailored treatment plan, with a preventive focus for the future. Set yourself on the path to a healthier smile and a happier, more confident you.
Preventive dentistry encompasses attending routine dental health examinations and hygienist appointments (even if you feel your smile is healthy!), as well as the breadth of treatments and techniques that aim to preserve the health of your smile. This includes restorative treatment like fillings and composite bonding, as well as hygiene cleaning and polishing to remove stubborn plaque and staining.
During your routine appointments with us, we will perform life saving mouth cancer screenings, for your peace of mind. As well as carrying out a thorough examination of your teeth and gums to identify any existing or developing problems (such as tooth wear, decay and signs of gum disease), we will offer you educational advice on how to be efficient with your brushing and flossing.
Whilst many patients brush for the recommended two minutes a day, twice a day, it can often be technique that’s letting them down. Learning to use your brush, floss and inter-dental brushes correctly can completely transform the long-term health of your teeth and gums.
Prevention is an integral part of our approach to dentistry: the Linden Dental team is dedicated to supporting patients in avoiding the need for complex treatment later down the line. Preventive dentistry is a huge part of this.
Helping you develop healthier habits: we can help you to put a plan in place to change lifestyle habits (smoking and alcohol consumption, and poor diet for example) that may be increasing your chances of developing decay, gum disease and tooth loss, by putting you in touch with professional support.
Advanced Airflow Tooth Polishing: our state-of-the-art Airflow Tooth Polishing system is highly effective in removing plaque and tartar from your gum line to keep gum disease at bay, and returning your teeth to their natural whiteness by removing stubborn stains.
Supporting patients since 1993: we’ve been looking after patients’ smiles since 1993 and really value the relationships we’ve formed with our community. Helping to keep smiles free of decay, gum disease and wear is what we do.
