Preventative Dentistry in Thornbury

Everyone deserves to have a healthy smile. Though brushing and flossing are essential, it’s vital to have preventative dentistry in Thornbury to serve you and your family. With an array of services available, the Thornbury Family Dental team can handle your every need.

Children’s Dentistry

Family brushing teeth togetherStarting at an early age means your child will be used to the dentist and can enjoy their regular checkups. We’ll teach them oral hygiene habits to ensure their teeth and gums stay healthy for life. If an issue is found, we’ll discuss it with you and decide how best to proceed.

Fissure Sealants

A thin, protective layer applied to back teeth blocks bacteria to keep decay at bay. It’s quick and noninvasive, giving an effective seal that’s easy to keep clean and lasts for years.

Oral Cancer Screenings

With a highly trained dental team, we can screen you for any signs of cancer in your oral tissues. Even the healthiest people can be at risk, so each of our patients is screened for potential problems. If located, we’ll refer you to a specialist for further assistance.

Sleep Apnoea Treatment

Damaged teeth, sleepiness and a sore jaw are common signs of sleep apnoea. We work with specialists to arrange sleep studies that will determine the underlying cause of your symptoms. Free from a restricted air flow, you can enjoy a great night’s sleep.

Sports Mouth Guards

Children and adults who participate in sport are at risk for broken teeth and other trauma to the mouth. With a custom-created mouth guard that fits well and allows you to speak, you can protect your teeth, gums and jaw. You can even choose the colour to match your team.

Therapies for Gum and Bone Disease

Inflammation of the gums can easily lead to gingivitis, the first stage of gum disease or periodontitis. Your overall health can, in turn, be negatively affected. Without the proper treatment, the bacteria can spread to the rest of the body. With periodontal treatment and regular checkups, we’ll help you maintain your oral health.
