Preventive dentistry is the modern way of reducing the amount of dental treatment necessary to maintain a healthy mouth. With the joint efforts of the dentist, the hygienist and the patient, the aim is to prevent the need for treatment, and so avoid the traditional pattern of fillings and extractions. It is likely that a course of treatment will be recommended to get your mouth into excellent condition, and a plan worked out to help you keep it that way.

Gum disease is described as a swelling, soreness or infection of the tissues supporting the teeth. There are two main forms of gum disease: gingivitis and periodontal disease.
