It has always been known that prevention is better than cure and preventive dentistry is the modern way of helping you to keep a healthy mouth. This approach helps you to keep your teeth for life, and means you need to have less dental treatment in the future. The two main causes of tooth loss are decay and gum disease. The better you prevent or deal with these two problems, the more chance you will have of keeping your teeth for life and prevent the need for treatment – especially fillings and extractions. As well as being a preventive dentist, Irina is also a gifted ballerina and is passionate about baking.
