Preventive Dental Care to Preserve and Maintain Your Oral Health for Life

When it comes to your dental health, being proactive is always better than finding a cure. If you only visit your dentist when already have a toothache, bleeding gums or other symptoms of an oral health condition, it may already be too late to save your tooth and stop infections from spreading.

At VIP Dental Clinic, we believe most oral health problems are preventable. If a problem does develop, catching it at an early stage means it will be easier and less expensive to treat, not to mention helping you avoid all that pain and discomfort. Preventive dentistry is the practice of routinely cleaning, examining, and taking care of your teeth both at home and at the dental office. We understand how important preventative dental care is, which is why we offer the latest, most comprehensive preventive dental services to maintain your oral health for the long term.

If you’re avoiding dental treatment due to fear or anxiety, our sleep dentistry services can help ensure the stress-free experience you need.

Nurturing Lifelong Wellness Through Oral Health & Preventive Dentistry Services

At VIP Dental Clinic, we emphasise the profound interconnection between oral health and your overall well-being. Your mouth is not an isolated entity; instead, it serves as a vital cornerstone influencing your holistic health. Understanding this intricate oral-systemic connection is at the core of our preventative dental care. As part of our unwavering commitment to safeguarding and nurturing your oral health, VIP Dental Clinic offers a range of preventive dentistry solutions tailored to your needs. Our dedicated approach focuses on proactive care, aiming not just to treat issues but to prevent them altogether for a healthier and happier you.

We offer you:

Comprehensive Dental Exams

A meticulous examination designed to detect potential issues early on ensures timely intervention. During the exam, utilising advanced technology, we gather biofilm samples and analyse them under a microscope. Depending on your oral health history and present oral health status, our dentist may recommend different types of X-rays, ranging from intraoral X-rays to more sophisticated 3D scans. 

The examination extends to the thorough inspection of soft tissues, gums, cancer screening, tongue, oropharyngeal area, and muscles. Moreover, we scrutinise hard tissues, including your teeth, bones, and joints. This holistic assessment ensures a comprehensive understanding of your oral health, enabling us to provide personalised and effective preventive strategies for your well-being.

Guided Biofilm Therapy

Going beyond traditional cleaning methods, Guided Biofilm Therapy ensures thorough removal of dental plaque and biofilm, promoting optimal oral health. It begins with a comprehensive assessment of your oral condition, identifying areas of concern, followed by a gentle yet effective combination of air-polishing and water, which removes biofilm, stains, and bacteria without causing damage to the enamel. This method is not only more comfortable for patients but also more efficient in reaching challenging areas that traditional methods might miss.

Laser-Assisted Decontamination

Our attentive dental team frequently employs laser technology to precisely and selectively target areas of bacterial infection or inflammation. The focused energy emitted by the laser helps to decontaminate and disinfect the affected areas without causing damage to surrounding healthy tissues. This minimally invasive approach enhances the efficiency of bacterial removal, ensuring a more thorough and precise treatment.

Laser-assisted decontamination is particularly beneficial in addressing various oral health concerns, including gum disease and bacterial infections. The precision of laser technology allows for a targeted and effective response, contributing to quicker healing and reduced discomfort for our patients.

Bacterial Disruption Therapy

Bacterial Disruption Therapy (BDT) at VIP Dental Clinic is a pioneering approach that combines various protocols to effectively combat pathogenic bacteria and disrupt unhealthy biofilm. It is strategically employed at specific points in your oral care journey, targeting situations where pathogenic bacteria pose a threat to your dental well-being. This innovative therapy becomes particularly relevant in cases of persistent bacterial infections, and chronic inflammation or when traditional cleaning methods may fall short in addressing specific oral health challenges. BDT not only helps manage existing oral health issues but also serves as a preventive strategy against potential complications.

Oral Hygiene Instruction

A healthy smile begins with informed oral care practices. Our oral hygiene instruction is designed to empower you with the knowledge and skills needed to maintain optimal oral health at home. During your personalised sessions, our dental practitioners guide you through effective brushing and flossing techniques, emphasising the importance of a consistent oral care routine.

Understanding that each individual has unique oral health needs, our instruction includes tailored advice on selecting the right oral care products and developing habits that promote a healthy smile. We address specific concerns such as plaque control, gum health, and preventive measures, ensuring you are equipped with the tools to proactively care for your teeth and gums.

Patient education is an integral part of our preventive dentistry services, ensuring that you not only receive exceptional care during your visits but also possess the knowledge to maintain your oral health between appointments.
