Preventive Dentistry

At Heasley Dental we encourage preventive techniques - helping you to understand how to maintain good oral hygiene therefore preventing tooth decay and gum disease.

We highly recommend brushing and flossing your teeth twice daily and having an annual dental exam and clean. X-Rays are generally recommended every two-three years.

Periodic Examination

The best way to maintain good oral hygiene is to brush and floss your teeth and to visit your dentist regularly. Your dentist not only examines your teeth for signs of decay or damage, he also looks for early signs of gum disease and oral cancer.


Bad Breath Solutions

Bad breath (or halitosis) is an unpleasant odour which can occur from time to time or be long lasting.

The main cause of bad breath is in the mouth. We have millions of bacteria that live in the mouth...


Snoring Appliances

Snoring, like all sounds, loud or quiet, is caused by vibrations in the respiratory structures. It occurs during sleep when the area at the back of the throat or in the nose relaxes and narrows. The air movement is then restricted in the air passage, resulting in the sound.

Sports Mouthguards

Mouthguards are made from a plastic material called Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA). EVA is strong and tough and can be easily moulded to fit precisely over your teeth and gums.


Oral Hygiene

In order to keep your gums healthy you need to remove the daily buildup of plaque from all the surfaces of your teeth by -
  • Brushing your teeth twice a day, for two minutes each time. Ask your dentist which type of toothbrush is best for you, as many of us use brushes that are too hard or too large.

Flouride Treatments

Fluoride is a natural mineral found in food and water which helps to strengthen teeth and prevent tooth decay, by making the tooth more resistant to acid attacks from plaque and sugars. If fluoride is lacking from the diet, the teeth will be prone to tooth decay and cavities.


Gums Periodental Health

Periodontal Disease is the later stages of gum disease. This is when the bacteria infection under the gums progresses deeper and affects the bone and tissue supporting the tooth.


Grinding Appliances

Teeth grinding is a surprisingly common occurrence and often happens whilst asleep. Most people are therefore unaware that they are grinding and only come to realise it when their partner complains of the noise the following morning.
