Your oral health is important and you want to maintain a healthy smile. Many times, we can prevent dental problems with regular preventive care. In order to help prevent problems, we have a range of personalized services to suit you and all your family members. These include regular hygiene appointments, checkups, and cosmetic and implant dentistry to name a few.
What is Preventative Care?
In the context of dentistry, preventative care encompasses all of the steps you take to avoid encountering problems with your teeth and gums. It’s the set of tasks that help you to maintain a beautiful smile!
The best place to start is with a regular check-up. We know that this isn’t always a prospect that everyone relishes, but at our friendly surgery we do our best to make you feel comfortable. We’re happy to talk you through all parts of the process, so that you’re confident – and dare we say it, excited! – to visit us.
What Happens During a Check-Up?
We’ll perform a thorough inspection of your teeth and gums to make sure that everything is healthy. We may also take X-rays to check whether you have any problems under the surface of the gums. If there are procedures you need to improve your oral health, we’ll explain them fully and ensure you’d happy with the treatment plan.
How Often Should I Visit?
For healthy people, we would recommend visiting once a year at the very least. If you’re having ongoing treatment, we’ll see you more often, and your next appointment will be booked before you leave the office.
It is our goal to ensure your smile is beautiful and healthy throughout your lifetime. Your oral health is our priority. If you have oral health concerns, please talk to our team about ways we can help ensure the long-term health of your teeth and maintain your beautiful smile.
