We understand that dental check-ups are not the most exciting features of your monthly calendar, but we cannot stress the importance of regular dental appointments enough. We know that many patients dread going to the dentist, but check-ups are quick and painless and they can really make a difference to your oral and general health. With so much evidence to support the link between oral and overall health, it’s never been more important to look after your teeth and gums. We recommend 6 monthly check-ups for patients of all ages and on top of this, we highly recommend regular sessions with our amazing dental hygienists. Now, you can make appointments directly with our hygienists, rather than getting a referral from your dentist. During our routine check-ups, our dentists look out for warning signs of tooth decay, gum disease and oral cancer and they note down any changes that have occurred in the mouth since your last appointment. Your dentist will also ask you if you have had any problems or pain and they will be happy to answer any questions you have or allay any concerns about oral health. Hygienists are experts in oral hygiene and they play a really important role in the prevention and treatment of a number of oral health issues. We advise patients to take advantage of our oral hygiene services, including cleaning treatments, preventative care and advice about oral hygiene, diet and giving up smoking. Our hygienists are also a very important part of the care we provide for patients with gum disease and regular cleaning treatments can be extremely beneficial. If you’re due a check-up or you’ve been thinking about trying a cleaning treatment, call us now! In a matter of minutes, we can clean and polish your teeth, check for any potential problems and ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy and strong.
