The most common dental issues can easily be prevented through routine dental care both at the dentist and at home. One of our favourite things we as dentists like to say is that prevention is better than cure. If we can keep your smile free from bacteria, your natural teeth will last far longer.
While much of the hard work takes place in front of the bathroom mirror, visiting your dentist as regularly as six months can protect your smile from cavities and gum disease. Dental examinations in combination with visits to the hygienist give your smile the best chance at a long and healthy life.
A cleaner mouth is a healthier mouth. We all know what’s needed to keep on top of our oral hygiene – brushing twice a day, flossing regularly, avoiding sugary foods etc. Regular visits to the dentist are ideal opportunities to check that your home care is doing the job it’s meant to. Your dentist can provide guidance on how to clean your teeth and gums more effectively.
Gum health is essential to your overall oral care and your general health. Gum disease has links to more serious conditions such as heart disease and diabetes. Modern advances in dentistry has made combating gum disease more straight-forward than ever. Visits to the hygienist are the first line of defence against bacteria and plaque. We can also help treat cases of gum disease, preventing the condition from getting worse.
