Reduce frequency of intake of sugary food

There is sugar in most things we eat. The teeth can handle it 3 times a day. If you snack between meals the this is what tips the teeth over the edge. In between snacks should be fruit, low sugar foods or savoury type foods

Prevention at PrentonDental

With the permission of the parents all children will receive topical fluoride applications (duraphat) on their permanent teeth during their maturation process. (Generally 6-12 years old)

Duraphat varnish

Is the material of choice we use at PrentonDental for fluoride application

If any child is very decay prone then we may prescribe this to be used as normal toothpaste as we already do for some adults
