Preventative care from your dentist: the key to maintaining good oral health

At Danny de Villiers Dentist in Weybridge, we are passionate about preventative dentistry. We aim to stop problems before they start, and treat them promptly and permanently if we discover any intervention is needed. We welcome new patients of all ages for general dental treatments.
oral-healthMost people need to visit the dentist for general check-ups every six to 12 months. Some people need to visit more frequently, and you should always follow your dentist’s advice. Conditions such as gum disease may require monitoring and ongoing treatment, which will necessitate more regular visits to the dental practice.
When you come to our Weybridge practice for a check-up, your dentist will take a detailed dental and medical history, and will conduct a thorough clinical examination. This includes a standard mouth cancer check – studies have shown that cases of mouth cancer are on the increase, and as with any form of cancer, early detection and prompt intervention are pivotal in maximising your chances of making a full recovery.
If your dentist does spot anything suspicious, they will refer you to a hospital consultant for further investigation. Any other treatment that is required will be included in your treatment plan.
Looking after your gums is just as important as looking after your teeth. Gum disease is one of the leading causes of tooth loss in the UK, and again early intervention is important. We also offer hygiene appointments at our Weybridge clinic; the dental hygienist has a vital role in the fight against gum disease, and can provide you with bespoke home care advice as well as professionally cleaning your teeth.
We use lasers for many procedures at our Weybridge dental practice, ensuring that you will enjoy a pain-free treatment journey.
