Not seen a dentist in a while?
There are all sorts of reasons you may not have seen a dentist for a while, from nerves, to time just flying by. But don’t worry, we are here to give your teeth the care and attention they’re desperate for – and we won’t tell you off; we’re not like that.
Visiting the dentist is an important part of your overall health routine especially as research has found links between gum disease and a whole host of serious conditions including arthritis, heart disease, strokes, diabetes and problems with pregnancy, such as fertility issues, low birth weight babies and premature births.
A staggering 90 per cent of us suffer from gum disease at some point in our lives but with good dental care the risks can be easily controlled.
It is vital to your oral health and overall wellbeing that you visit the dentist at least once a year and we would urge you to make an appointment at your earliest convenience. We have a well-established team and provide outstanding hygiene care to prevent and manage gum disease.
Visiting the dentist annually reduces the risk of tooth decay by 60%*
The best way to avoid getting toothache is to keep your teeth and gums as healthy as possible. We advise that you:
- Brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes using fluoride toothpaste
- Regularly clean between your teeth using dental floss or interdental brushes
- Visit us at least once a year for a dental examination
