AND DENTAL CHECK-UPS
Healthy gums are one of the secrets to a great smile and good teeth cleaning and flossing are vital for keeping teeth and gums in good health.
Whilst your brushing and flossing may seem adequate enough, it is advisable to have your teeth professionally inspected and cleaned around twice a year. This not only is required to keep teeth and gums healthy, it is also important that you have your teeth inspected for early detection of cavities, gum disease or other issues such as dry mouth, discussing medical conditions such as diabetes that can affect oral health and detecting oral lesions or oral cancers. Professional cleaning also removes plaque and tartar from between the teeth and under the gum line which, if left, can cause decay, gingivitis, bleeding gums and gum disease.
We may also advise you to have dental xrays, done here at the surgery, to check any problems that may be arising between the teeth, under existing fillings or nerve health.
