Preventive care and how it can help you

Regular Dental examinations can help prevent:

We are sure you know that cleaning your teeth, flossing twice a day and paying regular visits to your dentist is vital for maintaining good oral health.

But do you really know why?

When you visit your dentist they will carry out a detailed check of your overall oral health and offer advice on how it can be maintained and improved. They will also be able to look for early signs of:

Gum disease
caused by a build up of plaque which is the largest cause of tooth loss in the UK.

Dental emergencies
the better the condition of your oral health the less likely you are to experience and suffer with dental emergencies and episodes of pain.

Mouth cancer
this affects around 5,300 people every year in the UK (BDHF 2009) but if detected early it can be successfully treated


Hygienist visits

It is very important to see the hygienist on a regular basis to keep your gum health in optimum condition.

Drinking tea, coffee, red wine or smoking can cause staining on your teeth and your hygienist will be able to remove it. The cleaner your teeth are, the easier it is to prevent future problems like plaque build-up which can result in tooth decay and gum disease.

With these prevention based plans you are not only investing in your teeth but in your overall health and wellbeing.

Clearly, our mouths are speaking volumes about the state of our health. And with three out of every four UK adults over the age of 35 affected by gum disease, the significance of these studies begins to take hold. The good news is that gum disease is a preventable condition and can be treated and kept under control with regular cleaning sessions and dental checkups.
