At Care For Smiles, we ensure your first examination and recall appointments are thorough and we take the time to make certain nothing is missed or glossed over. You will always be aware of what we can do together to prevent or minimise extensive treatment in the future.

This can include recommendations on higher fluoride or special calcium toothpastes, diet and saliva analysis, ways to improve both tooth and gum cleaning.

We are also very proactive and regularly recommend mouthguards (for all contact sports), occlusal splints (for grinding and clenching), fissure sealants (to prevent decay in deep grooves on teeth) and crowns (to prevent cracked/broken teeth from splitting/falling apart).
