Preventative dentistry is at the very heart of what we do here at Nuvo Dental Dawlish. Our ethos revolves around taking care of our patient’s overall oral health so that we can help prevent diseases and issues from occurring, and minimise any interventions needed.

What is preventative dentistry?

Preventative dentistry prioritises the patient’s well-being. It is centred on pre-empting dental issues before they arise, encompassing the proactive measures taken both by our practice and by you as the patient to maintain oral health. At Nuvo Dental Dawlish, this means regular check-ups with your dentist, complemented by dental hygiene appointments and a personalised at-home care regimen.

How often should I visit the dentist?

We advocate for regular check-ups. The interval between each check-up is customised to address each patient’s specific oral health needs and circumstances.

How often should I visit the dental hygienist?

We recommend routine hygiene appointments with our skilled and knowledgeable team at Nuvo Dental Dawlish Centre. Your dentist and hygienist will collaborate to determine the optimal frequency for your dental hygienist visits.

What can I do at home?

Preventative care begins at home. We can assist in tailoring an at-home oral health routine to suit individual patients. However, we always stress the importance of brushing your teeth twice daily for two minutes, regular flossing, and replacing your toothbrush or toothbrush head every three months.
