AT Wood Lane Dentistry we are proud of our high quality cosmetic dentistry and implants.

However, the part of our practice we are most proud of is our preventive programme.

Minimal intervention (MI) dentistry is all about keeping your teeth and gums healthy for life.

It’s the modern and preventative approach to dental care, embracing whole-body health.

It’s effective because it helps you and your dental team work together to reduce the damaging impact of daily life on your teeth and gums. It combines the very best oral health advice, with the most up-to-date dental knowledge, skills and products to help you maintain healthy teeth and gums for life.

Principal dentist Vikram Chugani strongly supports a preventive approach to dentistry.

He says: “This is the philosophy at the heart of the concept of MI dentistry and ours here at Wood Lane Dentistry.

“Not only do we want our patients to enjoy better oral and general health, but to understand how to maintain it throughout their lives — not to mention a better-looking smile.”



Is it suitable for everyone — including children?

Absolutely! MI dentistry is about stopping problems before they start, at any age.

We will talk you through your check-ups and hygienist visits — telling you what we’re doing and why. We can then recommend the best future care for your teeth and gums.

“We may ask you questions about your overall health, diet or lifestyle and discuss how these can impact on your oral health and offer the appropriate tips and advice. It’s all about getting involved in your dental care and treatment.



Does it cost more?

No, the point of MI dentistry is that by maintaining a healthier mouth and visiting your dentist regularly to monitor how you’re doing, you’re reducing the potential for more expensive, invasive dental treatments.
