PREVENTIVE DENTISTRY

Minimum intervention for maximum health

At Inform Dental, we strongly focus on the prevention of dental problems before they can impact on your oral health.

It’s estimated 80% of people will experience some form of gum disease in their lifetime. Gum disease – also called periodontal disease – is generally an infection of the gum tissues surrounding the tooth roots such as the bone. Advanced gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults.

The team at Inform Dental believe preventive care is the key to long-term optimal oral health. That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, take digital x-rays when necessary and know a routine hygiene therapy treatment is also essential in preventing the development of dental disease.

Periodontal disease and decay are both caused by plaque. Plaque is a colourless film, which adheres to your teeth at the gum line. Plaque constantly forms on your teeth, which is why brushing twice a day and flossing at least once a day as well as attending regular check-up appointments at Inform Dental is so important when it comes to preventing the development of periodontal disease.
