A goal for dental health

Our preventative dental care goal is to help you achieve and maintain ideal oral health.

Initially, after a thorough dental examination, we will determine what factors put you most at risk of developing dental decay, gum disease, or any other oral conditions such as mouth cancer. We will then suggest an everyday routine of oral care that is effective and efficient. We will monitor your achievements with regular reviews. In a short time we will be able to let you know how successfully you are carrying out the procedures and will advise you as to whether your mouth is maintained in a stable and healthy condition.

A thorough approach

At AVA Dental Centre preventative dental care is provided by a committed and dedicated team of dentists, hygienists, and dental nurses, all of who receive regular training in the latest techniques and materials. We work closely together to offer you the most appropriate preventative dental care available.


  • Twice daily tooth brushing and cleaning between your teeth using floss or dental sticks.
  • Use fluoride toothpastes and mouth rinses.
  • Have a good balanced diet. Reduce snacking between meals and be especially careful of food and drinks containing sugar. Foods such as cheese, fruit, nuts and vegetables are good substitutes.
  • If you smoke, give it up!
  • Alcohol consumption should be moderate.
  • Chew gum… it increases saliva which helps to reduce plaque acids in the mouth.
  • Visit the dentist (and hygienist) regularly.
