Preventive/Hygiene Care

At Springhill Dental, we are committed to your long term oral health.

Our preventative care team will work with you to create a customised oral hygiene solution to ensure your teeth and gums are kept in optimal condition. Preventative care is very important to your oral health. Neglect to teeth and gums can lead to tooth mobility, tooth decay (caries), halitosis(bad breath), gingivitis and periodontitis.

  • Heart Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Respiratory Disease
