In addition to providing all the treatments you expect from a modern dental practice, we find that prevention is the best approach to avoiding tooth loss or the need for fillings. Since three out of four teeth are lost through gum disease, it's clear why we put such emphasis on the early identification and cure of any gum disorder. You have more to lose than your teeth if you allow gum disease to continue unhindered.
With mouth cancer being diagnosed in around 5,000 people each year in the UK, and early detection and treatment considerably increasing survival chances, regular dental visits are highly recommended.
During your consultation we will discuss your dental health and any concerns regarding your teeth and smile, followed by an assessment of the health of your gums, cheeks, tongue, lips and teeth and check that any previous dental work continues to fulfil its purpose.
The long term survival of your natural smile and the opportunity for any cosmetic renovation is dependant on the support of healthy gums.
Their upkeep is the remit of our hygienist who will undertake a thorough cleaning of your mouth during your hygiene session. Every trace of bacterial plaque that builds up between visits - contributing to decay, gum disease and bad breath - will be removed, leaving your mouth healthy and smelling fresh.
