Preventative dentistry is the practice of regular care for your teeth, which prevents plaque build up, cavities and gum disease among other ailments.

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends visiting a dentist at regular intervals determined by the dentist. During such visits preventative dentistry can be practiced to keep your dental health in check.

At Corner Cove Dental, we are all about preventing disease and other health issues, ensuring you can always smile brightly.

Our patients maintain good dental health by participating in dental exams, digital x-rays and cleanings during their regular visits.
A dental exam is a great way to stay on top of your dental hygiene as the dentist will clean your teeth and check your mouth for gum disease and cavities. The dentist will also evaluate how likely you are to develop any oral health issues and discuss your diet and daily dental hygiene routine to ensure you continuously take care for your teeth. These exams may also include Digital X-rays.

Corner Cove Dental uses Digital X-rays to ensure a high definition image of the inside of your mouth is recorded electronically for future reference. The process requires the patient to have a sensor inserted into their mouth. The sensor then photographs the inside of the patient’s mouth and immediately stores it on a computer. Besides the benefit of a high quality digital image that can easily to stored or transferred to a specialist, digital x-rays also minimise radiation compared to film x-rays, and is more environmentally friendly.

Another preventative measure we offer includes dental cleanings, which aim to clean plaque off your teeth and prevent the buildup of tartar, the creation of cavities and gum disease that can cause other diseases in the body. Cleaning can include tooth scaling, which is the removal of plaque below the gum line, and polishing.

We are dedicated to giving each of our patients the healthy smile they deserve!
