PREVENTATIVE DENTAL CARE IN THE ISLE OF MAN

Preventative dentistry

We stand by the tried and tested motto that ‘prevention is always better than cure’. Many severe dental conditions result from poor oral health – preventative dentistry acts as early intervention, keeping your mouth healthy and reducing your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, mouth cancer and tooth loss.  

Regular check-ups and hygiene appointments are the best way to keep your mouth in great shape. We will look for early signs of gum disease and tooth decay during your routine appointment, alongside discussing any oral health issues and screening for mouth cancer. Our hygienists will give your teeth a thorough clean using advanced Airflow Tooth Polishing to eliminate the plaque and tartar build-up, leaving your teeth fresh and sparkling!

Preventative dentistry is a joint effort – what you do at home is just as important as what we do in the surgery! We'll give you tips on brushing, flossing, and your diet to help you maintain a healthy mouth in-between check-ups and hygiene appointments.

Minor dental problems can become more severe in a short amount of time. Where your oral health is concerned, it’s never worth leaving it until later – you should always visit us as often as is recommended by your clinician. Failure to do so means you’re more likely to need painful, invasive and expensive treatment later in life. 

As essential as frequent trips to the dentist are, we know they aren’t affordable for everyone. At Quay Dental we are committed to maintaining your oral health in the most effective and accessible way possible. To help spread the cost of your care and make regular examinations more manageable, we created Quay Dental Membership© with options tailored to you.

Frequently asked questions

  • What is preventative dentistry?
    Preventative dentistry refers to the practices and procedures aimed at preventing dental problems before they occur or worsen. The goal of preventative dentistry is to maintain good oral health, prevent tooth decay and gum disease, and avoid the need for more invasive and costly dental treatments. Examples of preventative dentistry include regular dental checkups and cleanings, fluoride treatments, dental sealants, and oral hygiene education. Through these practices, preventative dentistry helps to promote healthy teeth and gums and reduce the risk of dental problems in the future. Preventative dentistry is important for people of all ages, and it is especially crucial for children as they develop their permanent teeth. By establishing good oral hygiene habits early on and receiving regular preventative dental care, children can avoid many common dental problems and maintain good oral health throughout their lives.
  • Why is it important to visit a general dentist regularly?
    Regular visits to a general dentist are important for maintaining good oral health. General dentists can detect early signs of dental problems, such as cavities and gum disease, before they become more serious and require more invasive treatments. They can also provide preventive services such as dental cleanings and fluoride treatments to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
  • How often should I visit a general dentist?
    Most general dentists recommend that you visit them for a dental health review at least annually. However, the frequency of your visits may depend on your individual dental health needs. If you have a history of dental problems, your dentist may recommend more frequent visits.
  • How can I find a good general dentist?
    You can find a good general dentist by asking for recommendations from family and friends, checking online reviews, and researching dentists in your area. It's important to choose a dentist who makes you feel comfortable and who takes the time to explain your dental health needs and treatment options.
