Healthy teeth and gums

At Cape Road Dental, we have a strong focus on preventive dentistry - helping you and your family to avoid problems such as tooth decay and gum disease, so you can keep your teeth for life.

Gum disease often doesn’t show any symptoms in its initial stages, but can lead to bad breath and sore, swollen or bleeding gums. If left untreated, it can eventually lead to tooth loss. It has also been linked to wider health problems including heart disease. Unfortunately it is a very common disease, caused by plaque, a film of sticky bacteria that is constantly forming on your teeth.

Our hygienists play a key role in helping you to avoid or combat gum disease. They will give your teeth a professional clean using an ultrasonic tool, removing the plaque that normal brushing cannot shift.

They can also offer the latest power cleaning system, which cleans your teeth thoroughly and removes superficial stains, giving you teeth that feel clean and fresh, and look whiter too!

Regular dental examinations are also an important part of preventive care. They enable our dentists to keep a close eye on what is happening in your mouth, and to spot potential problems at an early stage so they are easier to treat.
